"Man Rule" Violation

On most Sundays, The Targo and I have dinner with his parents. Because hey! free meal! (not to be confused with "Free Dummy!") And also, I'm madly in love with their dogs.


While The Targo's dad was cooking dinner (he's an amazing cook), The Targo an I went for a walk in the botanic gardens. About halfway there, The Targo looked at me, looked down at himself, and then back at me.

The Targo: "Aw, hell no."

I looked at him, and then looked down at me.

Me: "Tell me you didn't just notice this."

We were dressed exactly the same. Both of us were wearing maroon t-shirts, jeans, sunglasses, and sneakers.

The Targo: "We haven't been dressed like this all day, have we?"

Me: "Yes. And, we were standing right next to each other for at least an hour at Babies R Us. And I'm sure absolutely no one cared."

Naturally, we had to head back to his parents' house so he could change into a much more acceptable Bulls t-shirt.

Me: "You didn't think we looked cute?"

The Targo: "No! Not at all."

He didn't use the word emasculated, but I know he was thinking it.

snirk. Mr. Hot would have caught that one right away. But, his method is a heavy sigh in my direction while looking down at his clothing. Then a trudge up the stairs to change. All the while mumbling. Even after I offer to change. ;-)

Oh, ha ha ha ha! Hee hee hee! ROTFLMAO!! Oh, Marianne, I'm glad I'm not the only one that does it. Hee hee!

The Hubby is good enough to be the one to go change, bless him. :)

I have a habit now of dressing Lovely Daughter and myself alike! I don't mean too, it just happens!

In that case, I change. :)

Just read The Hubby this post. After he finished a hearty guffaw, his comment is: "Matchy-matchy BAD!"

Awe, how cute! (but poor Targo.)

Yeah, Sunday dinners at the parents = good.

That's too funny! I once went to a fancy-schmancy Christmas party at my friend's parents' house. Some guy showed up wearing the same sweater as my friend's dad. The next time I saw her dad, he had changed into a different shirt. I didn't realize boys cared about that kind of thing so much!

And the real kicker ... it was a really ugly sweater. I was shocked that there were two people in the world who would buy that thing!

Hehe... AS and I have done that, too. Although, I was more embarrassed than he was. (Naturally. I'm the better dresser, so he shouldn't be embarrassed to be twin with me.)

Hahaha! That is awesome! Me and my hubby have done the same thing. Are we one of "those" couples, too?
