Well, yesterday Steph and I had the most inane conversation of our married life. And trust me there have been a few. 

 

I needed new work pants to all of mine shrinking 4 sizes or falling apart. I told her to get the size off the pants I wore Saturday because they fit well. She left for the store. 

 

When she came back I tired on the pants. The first pair was too small. I asked her why she didn't get the size off the pants I told her to. She said she did. I asked her what pair. She said they were on the couch. 

 

I looked and there on the couch was a pair of blue pants. 

 

"Those are not the pants I wore."

 

"Yes, they are."

 

"No, the ones I wore were black, those are blue."

 

"They were the ones you wore."

 

"How could they be the ones I wore if they are not the same color."

 

"Those are the ones I took your knife out of."

 

The conversation went on like this for a while longer. The other two pairs of pants fit so I just told her to take the one pair back. A short time later, as I sat at my desk, she walked into the hall with the black pants in her hand. I told her that was the pair I wore Saturday.

 

She said they were the pair that was on the couch. I began to wonder if there were not two pairs of pants on the couch so I went and looked. There were no more pants. 

 

I took the black pants and tossed them on the green couch and immediately the looked blue. 

 

We were both right - and wrong. 

 

They shall henceforth and forever be known as my chameleon pants.

I still go myself and try on every piece of clothing (except underwear )  before I leave the store.

Saves time , trips back to store , and everything fits when I get home.

Because she likes shopping. I like not shopping. Works out great - most of the time.

My wife loves it too much. Pretty bad when you have to give your wife a monthly allowance!
