Nice Shirt

So… I have this shirt.

And it’s a great shirt.  It’s kind of light purplish in color (my wife thinks it’s pink, but it’s not), and it has these great green and white stripes.  It’s one of my favorite shirts.

And my wife hates it.  Despises it.  Loathes it.  She would probably rather that I wear a shirt made out of feathers than this shirt.  Or pretty much any other shirt on the planet, besides this one.  Does not like it.  At.  All.

And then I have this other shirt.

And it’s all right.  There’s nothing particularly wrong with it.  It’s a green shirt.

But it’s sooooooooooooooooooo boring!  It’s one solid color!  Where’s the flair in that?  Needless to say, it’s nowhere near as interesting as my cool purple and green shirt.

And my wife loves it.  And I’ve gotten compliments from several other people besides her about how nice I look in this shirt.

All of which goes to prove that I know absolutely nothing about anything even remotely related to the world of fashion.  And I never will.

And I am okay with that.  Occasionally, I even get a comic strip out of it. :-)

    What is it with wives & favourite shirts. I have a favourite T-Shirt & my wife loathes it. I am not allowed to wear it out in public if she’s with me. It’s very very old & she has threatened to chuck it out many times.

    Hey, Tony! Thanks for the link – that’s hilarious! You’ve got the same issue that I do! My wife said that my pictures were a little creepy, since they’re just kind of floating shirts with no one inside them – I think she’s right! 😉

    It’s a little hard to see the colors in the first shirt, which makes it difficult to fully appreciate the coolness. Wait a minute…..did I buy that shirt for you?!?

    No, you can’t take credit for my cool shirt, Wally! I picked it out all by myself! 😉
