Post #39: In which Sarge channels his inner Metrosexual

Oh how I love this whole home selling thing! I do (not). Yesterday we had a great day weather-wise and managed to accomplish a lot around the house including taking a couple of large boxes of clothes to GW Imports. Items that did not make the box however included three pairs of black dress pants and four pairs of khaki dress pants for my husband. Yes, my husband - the Sarge - the same guy that dresses up maybe once a year for events that do not have a directed manner of dress, if you know what I mean. And, yes, he's got two sets of those AND two sets of the nearly obsolete dress green uniform. This guy kept seven pairs of civilian dress pants - like he was a banker and would actually wear them instead of this every day:



His excuse for keeping all the khakis? "But they're all different colors!"

Judge for yourself:

oh yes, we have the same issue here. Ted has one whole closet, 2 dressers for all his crap and they are overflowing. He used to have 2 closets, but when we brought Rauan home he had to down-size. I have half empty closet and a an average sized dresser. Go figure!

But they are different colours one is off White, one is a definate khaki, the next is Beige, and the last one is Bone. Even i can see the difference.

Ha! Silly men, thinking they can dress themselves. I say the day they start buying the majority of their own clothes (boxers included) THEN they can dress themselves.

Good try through Lisa...

LOL -- I completely understand. I try so hard to get my honey to throw out clothing...sigh.

Well - MY excuse for not throwing out clothing is the wistful hope that SOMEDAY I might fit into it again.

I also have about 15 pairs of pants that need to be shortened. My mother used to do that for me. :(
