Was this post inspired by a search term on the blog?
Lisa: Oh. My. God. Someone just found our blog by typing “husband wearing meggings”. I can’t even make that up.
Ashley: BWAH HA HA HA! That is so awesome in every way.
Lisa: You just have to wonder what sort of desperation would lead a poor woman to search that. Was it a wife looking to find out if her man is fashion forward?
Ashley: I think she wants to know if meggings are legal grounds for divorce!
Lisa: Can you even imagine if your Robert busted out some meggings?
Ashley: Honestly, no. The only thing that might be worse is if he decided to start sporting a Nubrella.
Lisa: GAH! I can’t even decide which would be more humiliating…to me!
Okay, y’all, so we know school is getting ready to start all across the country in a matter of days/weeks. Everyone knows that with the start of school comes Parent’s Night (Open House) in the classroom. An evening where everyone scrambles to find childcare and rushes off to hear all about what their children will be learning that year, while throwing in a little mixing and mingling among other parents and the teachers. Add in a few sign-up sheets for classroom events, and you have yourself an evening of
elbowing your way to the front so you can secure the paper good sign-ups fun!
More often than not, my hubby has to meet me at these events straight from work, which got me thinking about this scenario:
It is Parent’s Night. You arrive at your child’s classroom and wait for your mate to rush in at the last minute claiming that he
forgot it was Open House and spent too much time updating his fantasy football team had a conference call that ran late. You look up as he makes his way in the door to see that he is wearing meggings.
To meet your child’s teacher for the first time.
To be among classroom parents, perhaps many you don’t even know yet.
You are waiting outside the classroom, tapping your foot impatiently and constantly checking your phone to see if he has texted to say that he is parking and will be there any second. You happen to glance up and see a man walking toward you wearing some sort of contraption on his head. And then you realize. That is your husband. Wearing a Nubrella on his head.
And it is not raining. He is just wearing it in case the weather turns. And this man is about to go and meet your child’s teacher. And chat it up with other parents. All the while wearing a Nubrella on his head.
So, which is it?
Would you rather have your husband show up to back to school night wearing meggings or with a nubrella on his head?
This might help you make up your mind…
You’re welcome, guys! 😀
