At any rate, when I pulled into the parking lot guess what sight I beheld? My husband waiting for me wearing a "sauna" shirt. Don't know what that is? Have a look.
|Why yes, it IS a silver, plastic-y kind of material|
Yes, seriously. He was wearing this. In public.
Thank goodness we were eating in an out of the way deli - where I didn't have to worry about running into anyone I knew.
As you can imagine, I had to ask what the hell he was doing. He informed me that he had planned on going to the gym and somehow, got sidetracked by getting tires. Which still doesn't answer the question - WHY was he wearing this? Apparently, he is of the opinion that it will help him to lose weight faster if he wears it while working out. I am of the opinion that is a bunch of baloney and that he is a crazy man.
With lunch on the line though I did eat with him in this attire but informed him in no uncertain terms that this would be the last time I would ever be caught dead with him in this get up. He replied that he is past the age where he cares what people think. I let him know that he is NOT in fact at that age yet. No one is ever at that age where this particular "outfit" is concerned.
As I was recounting the event, in detail, to Man-Child - he proceeds to inform me that not only does his father drive him to school wearing this get up - he actually got out of the truck and went into the front office to ask a question while wearing it.
I looked at Man-Child incredulously and said ........
"And you worry that I'm the one that's going to embarrass you?!"
Hands down - I win the cooler parent award.
