It’s Random Tuesday but it’s also Holiday Week. So this is short and so very sweet. Link it up with Keely at The UnMom or lose out.
After 4.5 hours shopping we were at Kohls, our last stop, doing last minute stuff (I know, I know, I said I was done. I forgot about gifts for CP!!) Anyway, walking by the socks and underwear (cause what guy doesn’t need one or both of those?) there’s an older lady, like 50’s-60’s talking on a phone in the men’s underwear aisle. I’m minding my own business I swear, but I heard a little of her conversation (and yes you can quote me on this) –
Old Woman: Hi, Traci, it’s mom. I’m at Kohls looking at underwear. Robbie’s a size 40 waist right?
I was in the next aisle and I almost dropped Chick cause I was laughing so hard. Take two minutes to think about that.
Would you want your mother in law buying you underwear for Christmas?
I didn’t think so. CP turned to me and said “It would have been even worse if she asked her daughter what color thongs she liked.” Geez, I’ve missed shopping with my husband!
MIL got us a Wii for Christmas and we went over there Sunday for early Christmas. Last night we did our Wii sport ages (and for the record – I’d just like to say, I had bowled two games and did boxing and played tennis before doing this). Dear God, I am SO NOT telling what age it gave me. You can only do it once a day but believe me I’m going to kick Wii’s butt until I get an age I can live with.
Okay, off to Wrap-the-Gifts palooza 2009. I can only hope the kids don’t wake up and come downstairs or we run out of tape or paper. That would suck. Be sure to head over to Keely’s and see if anyone is alive this Random Tuesday.
