Real men wear purple
October 28, 2006
Remember those cute tie dye shirts the children made? And some of you said I should be cautious when I washed them? But, me being me, I ignored you and just threw them in with the laundry like I do everything else.
Well now, all the whites are slightly purplish. My 10 yr old held up his formerly white socks and declared that he couldn’t wear them. “They look like GIRL socks!”
Who knew that wearing a lavender shirt was acceptable, but socks that have the slightest purple discoloration are not. And my screaming in mock horror while clawing my face with my fingers, “Oh NO, if you wear them everyone will think you are…A…GIRL. AAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! A fate worse than DEATH!!!” did nothing to change his mind. Which is a shame.
Feel bad for him, because his feet are going to get awfully cold (and ironically purplish) this winter.
