Call Me Stay Puff

T is not too silver tongued. When he heard I was getting an award at work tomorrow (big deal being made), he said, very dryly, as he is the driest of all, "So, are they going to give you a raise or a plaque telling you how awesome you are?" (Neither. I think I'm getting $50 and I get to keep my job...)

Tonight I said to him, "This so totally sucks. My clothes still don't fit... I hate that very much..."

To which he replied, "You could wear comfy clothes like sweats and then say, "Sorry, I had surgery on Friday and I'm still puffy like a marshmallow." I'm sure they'd understand..."

I'm being presented this award in front of a lot of people, people high up, in a big office. I hear my customer may be calling in.

He knows this.

I know he was joking, but I also know he was laughing to himself at the thought.

Darn it. Wish you had called me. I have a pair of pants / slacks that you could have used. They look nice but have a stretchy waiste and are my size. Might have been more comfortable for you and still looked decent.

Thank God for this low slung pants in style. Good grief.

I love your boys - that's exactly what my husband would tell me (as he was laughing fit to bust mind you!)
