A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing

A chuckle for today. And I swear this is a true story.



My aunt, usually a fairly thin woman, has put on some lb's in the past year. This has prompted her to by some new clothing. She bought herself a new outfit last week and decided to wear it to church on Sunday. After putting on her new pair of plaid-ish pants and brown sweater, she decided she no longer liked it. She laid it on the bed so it wouldn't get wrinkled before she took it back to the retailer. Off to church she went.

Her husband had to run some errands that same morning, and told auntie that he would meet her at church. He gets home after she's already left and sees the outfit lying on the bed. He assumes that she has got him a new pair of pants and sweater, and that she wants him to wear it to church. He does. No kidding. Yes, he thinks its kind of an odd outfit, but, hey, she's the expert in the fashion department. Who is he to challenge her taste in pants.

He shows up at church and she sees him walk in. She doubles over in laughter. He's clueless. She can hardly breathe.

I know, I know. Wouldn't he KNOW they were women's clothing? He's definitely not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

Too funny. I bought an argyle cardigan the other day and my husband exclaimed that he wanted to borrow it - um, argyle is fine on a man, but with a shawl collar, no buttons and 3/4 length puffed sleeves? I think not. Oh, boys.

Tooooooooooo funny. Although I can relate. My grandfather always left it up to grandmother to dress him - especially for formal photographs or special occassions. I can see him putting on whatever grandmother left on the bed just like your uncle.

Thanks for sharing!
