Some guys never really get to that point in their life where they actually care about their clothes. I sort of ride the line between one of those guys and the casual ‘do I look ok?’ kind of guy.
Unfortunately for her, the Mrs. likes to have her husband look at least presentable in public. Not that she needs me to be dressed in a suit every day, but, you know, not walking around with yesterday’s meal still stuck to my shoulder.
Often, it boils down to money. I just don’t like spending money on something like socks and shoes for me, when we need to fix up the kitchen, get the dogs their shots, pay the bills, and on and on and on. You know. The important stuff!
So, this weekend, we went to Sam’s to get our regular groceries and there were these loafers there. I’ve had the pair I wear around EVERYWHERE for about a year now and love them. Granted, they’re getting stained a bit and the color is wearing off, but they are still comfortable, and you can’t beat the ‘slip-on’ factor! Right guys?
Unannounced to me, the Mrs. had been shopping online to find me the best ‘deal’ on a new pair. When we saw this pair at Sam’s, they were 50% cheaper than the online price she found and rated the most comfortable. I had lost her in the store, and when I ran into her, she was running over to me with the box in hand.
Thankfully for her, the stars aligned. The price was right, the quality was great, and I even got to enjoy the $1.50 hotdog while she found them for me. You can’t beat that. Now, to wear these for another year and keep the old ones around for a rainy day.
I thought I’d share that little story from this weekend. The Mrs. really does have her work cut out for her when it comes to my clothes shopping. She is usually right and keeps me from looking like the next homeless guy you pass by.
So today, here’s to the Mrs. and her love for keeping her husband from looking like a bum. No, I mean, here’s to her loving me more than I can imagine and taking care of me so well…!
Wishing you all a great week ahead my friends!
