Well, keep your eyes open, and you can learn a little something everyday.

I figured that above was exclusive to men.

Love it! Don't we wish! I can hear it now, "Hurry up Honey you big stud, I am so satisfied I just want to put my head on your hairy chest and purr like a kitten. Then I would like to put on my pink mink stiletto slippers and walk naked out to the kitchen and bring you a nice cold Warsteiner and a Montecristo."

Oh wait, I am dreaming.*

Have you seen the commercial where the woman says "Do I look fat
in these pants?" and her husband/boyfriend stuffs his face with whatever
they are selling (Twix?) so she can't hear his answer?? The other
night DW modeled some pants and insisted (that's right.....insisted)
that I speak but the facts. I am like the founder of our country
(can not tell a lie), so..............I checked them out and said
"Burn 'em". "Grace under pressure" Hemingway called it.

I've survived 19 years with "Hmmm... do you have any slacks that aren't so baggy? Are you losing weight again? What about a skirt?"

For some reason my credibility has plummeted and my fashion advice is rarely solicited.

DH is oblivious to what I wear or whether I cut my hair, etc. Not long ago we went out to eat. I changed my shirt right before I left. I looked down at myself at the restaurant and saw my shirt was on inside out. Mortifying! DH didn't even notice.

The correct response is to put on your protective head gear before saying anything

This is one of those "you're screwed with whatever you answer questions". If you don't say anything, you're screwed, if say something good, you're screwed (cause we don't believe ya ), if you say something negative you're screwed. There's no right answer for this question.

At 14 years old, I asked why my grandma's hair was thinning.
When I was very young, I told my grandmother, who's hair was thinning in the middle, that she looked like Bozo. I guess I was young enough that it was cute.

I follow Max Cherry's approach:

Movie - Jackie Brown

Max Cherry: I'll bet, besides maybe an afro, you look exactly how you did at 29.
Jackie Brown: Well, my ass ain't the same.
Max Cherry: Bigger?
Jackie Brown: Yeah.
Max Cherry: Ain't nothin' wrong with that!

Hey, that's interesting. I am extremely conscious of DW's appearance/
attire; but then I am very very fussy about most everything.
As I like to put it "My eyes are easily offended."

I heard recently that "naturism" is dying out in Northern Europe, because nudity has become commonplace in everyday life. Recently a supermarket manager in a Northern German city called police because a young woman was shopping in his store wearing nothing but a denim jacket. Naturally the police responded quickly. After having a careful look, they decided that she "was not a public nuisance", and she should be allowed to go ahead with her shopping. No charges were filed.*

When does the plane leave anyway?

This was the message that got me going this morning. DW told me about it after the fact. She also left out alot of info: My usual response when she draws attention to something I don't notice is "Gosh, honey, why would I pay attention to your merely inside out T-shirt (or haircut or whatever) when I could pay attention to your beauty, charm, wit, et al. This used to work wonders--and erased untold numbers of inappropriate inattentions.

When DW was mortified (see above), I immediately told her to go to the bathroom and fix the problem. As she was leaving I even asked her if she needed help in the bathroom because there might be a possibility that her underware was on backwards too. I got the dirty look! I thought such assistance in the bathroom from a spouse would be appreciated. Not! She didn't even recognize the kindness and forethought I so thoughtfully displayed.

Later that evening I tried to get her to pay attention to my "et al," but she refused. Ladies, you can't live with them and you can't live . . . . What's a DH to do?

Re: Why do some old men wear their pants so high?..........


Getting back to pants, if this horse is not considered dead yet....

The men with the high pants are not getting that much shorter. It's just that they're still wearing 1940's-1950's style pants, which have a much larger "rise" from crotch to waist. If you go try on some vintage suits, the pants will have the correct inseam, but the waist will be a couple inches higher. It was just the style. The "normal" rises you see on pants today are just a bounce-back from the hip-hugging 70's. Sadly, hip huggers are back. Way too much butt crack for me!
