What happens in the mountains on a girly girl getaway stays in the mountains.
It totally gets shared here on the old blog.
Our friends know that when the fire gets built and the
vodka wine coolers water starts flowing, all bets are off.
It was during one of these conversations that the topic for today’s Would You Rather came about. Relaxation, yummy food, sleeping in AND blog post material…ah, girl’s weekends are the best!
Turns out that one of our good girlfriends has a family secret. Someone in her non-immediate family wears ladies’ slingback Crocs, which would be okay, if that person were say not a man.
Needless to say, we were laughing but once she showed us the picture of them, the real hysterics began.
Notice the beautiful, scalloped cut-outs.
Quite feminine, right? So masculine.
Obviously, we immediately began discussing the horror we would feel if one of our own husbands began sporting these shoes everywhere he went for an entire summer. You can probably picture it in your own mind…
- Backyard BBQ at the neighbor’s house for July 4th
- Trip to the local swimming pool
- Sunday school and church
- Dinner out at your favorite restaurant
The possibilities are really endless, right? You have to wonder if people would just stare without asking, or perhaps try to pull you aside to make sure your husband didn’t inadvertently hit the ladies’ shoe sale at Payless. No matter what happened, though, you would be with a man who spent his entire summer wearing OBVIOUSLY ladies’ footwear.
He totally skips out on the sandals. Footwear is not his problem. He knows exactly how to dress to let the world know he is every bit the handsome hunk you married. Except for one tiny, little detail. See, your man knows that keeping his head protected from the sun is a great way to stay cool AND avoid those pesky sunburns. Good for him. I mean, if he was doing it in a cap, instead of one of these.
Maybe you get him both, so he can coordinate better with what he is wearing.
Technically speaking, those are ladies’ sun hats. Why should your hubby not get full coverage from the sun just because his favorite sports team can’t see fit to make a wide brim hat? Seems unfair if you ask me.
The one on the right is actually pretty jaunty if you think about it. That look really transitions well from day to night. The places he could go in one of these fancy hats are endless…
- Father’s Day special brunch at The Cheesecake Factory
- Post soccer season party at the local pizza joint
- Every single swim meet of the summer
- Back to school picnic to meet all the teachers
It kind of boggles your mind to even think about it all, right? That is the goal here at The Dose of Reality. As if Monday isn’t challenging enough, already, amiright?
Here is what you must decide. Would you rather for the entire summer that your man wear ladies’ Crocs everywhere he goes or a ladies’ straw sun hat?
And remember the rules of this “game”. You must pick one. My ability to fit into my summer, skirted tankini depends on it. When you don’t pick a side, I eat my feelings.
What say you Dose Peeps?
