Conversation With My Husband: The New Shorts

I recently had an opportunity to go shopping at the local thrift shop sans Babykins. That meant I could actually try on clothes! Since I’m in desperate need of new shorts, I was excited to find a pair that fit and were in a length that I liked.

The only downside: They were in a camouflage pattern.


Clearly these are cameo shorts and not some weird spotted-cow pattern.

Usually cameo is not my thing. However, finding shorts that fit is a bit of a challenge these days, so I went ahead and purchased them.

A few days later I wore them for the first time with a forest green T-shirt. My looked at me and said, “You know, if you put on the right style of hat and carried a gun, you would look like some sort of rebel fighter.”

“So you don’t like the outfit?” I replied.

“No, I like it fine. I’m just saying,” he mildly responded.

Fortunately, we’ve been married long enough for me to know that my husband means what he says when it comes to my attire. So he truly didn’t find my outfit horrendous but it did remind him of something a rebel fighter would wear.

I’ll continue wearing the shorts because they’re comfortable, but at least now I have the makings of a Halloween costume.

    Glad you found something that fits! I was never much into fashion, but you become ever more wardrobe challenged after you have kids and have to figure out what size you are and how to manage to get to a store.

    p.s. I have a different blog now. I kind of up and left my other one without saying anything. There are a few people though (like you) that I wanted to let know personally so you could ‘refollow’ if you wanted. You’re one of the ones who has been around pretty much since my blogging beginning (which hasn’t been that long, but still) I kinda feel like we LCMS-ers ought to stick together.

      Thanks for letting me know! I realized the other day that your writings hadn’t been appearing on my reader, so I wondered what happened. I’ll have to check out your new blog–you’re writing is so concise and thought provoking.
