blouse

On the day after, I was feeling all happy and sleep deprived. I wanted to spend money, so Allie and I made our way down Ward Parkway to the nearest mall. I bought a pair of Crocs, but I still wasn't satisfied, so I turned to Allie and said, "Baby, I wanna buy you a blouse."

So we went to Nordstroms and she got a real pretty one.

Then yesterday I heard her talking about it on the phone to one of her friends. I heard her say, "I don't know where he heard of blouses."

And I looked at her like, Huh?

Turns out it wasn't a blouse I'd bought her. It was a shirt.

I said, "But I thought a blouse was a woman's shirt."

She shook her head. I was wrong.

Crocs? A blouse?

Could you please just surrender to the fashion police?

Hey Joe, pls explain what a Croc is. Are you referring to a type of faux reptile covering for a shoe?

Crocs are rubber sandals. Very comfy.

ty for croc clarification.

Another question: Do you really talk to your wife that way? Beginning your statements with "baby..."?

I, for one, don't have the self-confidence, nor the extra limbs to lose...
