For the life of me, I can't remember what Babycakes and I were talking about that led to the following dialogue:
Alice: Watch out, or I'll blog about you tomorrow.
Babycakes: Fine! You do that!
Alice: I will.
Alice: I already know what it will be about.
And these are the sort of in-depth, heartfelt talks we have. The same sort you'd have in third grade on the playground.
Babycakes and I have fundamental differences when it comes to stuff in our house. Babycakes is packrat-ish (but not that crazy type with boxes to the ceiling and receipts for gum you bought in 1983). He just likes his stuff. I, Alice, am a thrower-awayer. I DON'T LIKE STUFF.
To give you a small example, when we first got married, Babycakes already owned a house. After BoyChild was born, we moved to a new house. In the midst of packing up, Babycakes found an old suitcase full of clothes that had NEVER BEEN OPENED from his initial move-in.
Alice: Just throw it away. You haven't seen those things in 8 years, you'll never miss them.
Babycakes: Ohhh coooool! I LOVE this shirt!
This suitcase was filled with seriously dated items from the '80s. *sigh*
And so I hope to showcase some items from Babycakes' side of the closet that he WILL NOT let me toss out.
Number 1: I will give Babycakes credit in that he's never actually worn this sweater and I believe it's kept for sentimental value. I don't know what the sentiment is, maybe I-might-attend-the-Gay-Pride-Parade. Perhaps he'll leave us a comment and let us know.
Number 2: Fluorescent Orange Sweat Pants.
These pants look sort of squat, but in reality, Babycakes is like 6'4". He likes to wear these in the winter while he shovels snow or goes on other winter-y excursions. Maybe he wears them so the rescue chopper will be able to spot him when he collapses on the driveway.
*chopper sounds* Red Leader, we've spotted the missing per...ARGHHH...can't see...Headquarters...repeat...can't see...the sunlight reflecting off pants...CHOPPER DOWN!!!!
I hope this picture is conveying the absolutely BLINDING aspect of these sweats. I'm convinced they are more than just cotton, because unless it's radioactive, dye can't possibly be that bright.
Number 3: Green 80's shirt.
Babycakes has actually been known to wear this shirt to work as recently as last year. I think he does it because he knows I hate it, but I think he really loves it just a little bit too.
You can't find quality paisley like this anymore! That makes this shirt, like, 20 years old!
Now look at the picture below and see if you know where I'm heading with this.
Yes, BoyChild and GirlChild noticed the resemblance between the curtains on Thomas' head and Daddy's Green Shirt.
