After wearing a uniform for 20 years, JD is about to have to venture out into the world of fashion. This will not be an easy thing for my husband. This will not be an easy thing for my marriage.
In preparation for this tumultous time, I taped an episode of “What Not To Wear” featuring a guy that looked like he might have the same build as JD. I thought I’d lost him when the first outfit they suggested featured a purple polo type shirt. JD has an almost lethal allergic reaction to anything even remotely “preppie” and this shirt evidently fell into that catagory. Of course after almost 13 years of marriage I still don’t have a completely clear picture of what “preppie” means to my husband. I think he just throws it out there at anything he doesn’t like.
Given the fact that both of us felt a little frustrated with the other after just WATCHING a show about shopping (not actually DOING any shopping), I’m hoping that we’ll find a lot of stuff on sale.
We’ll need to save our pennies for all that marriage counseling we’ll need afterward.
