When my husband brought in the mail recently and laid it on the kitchen table, I noticed the title of an article on the cover of our TIME magazine. “Monogramming is over,” it read.
“I can’t believe monogramming is now passé. Who makes those decisions?” I said, pointing to the cover. “What am I supposed to do with all of your monogrammed L.L. Bean shirts? Now, when you wear them to work, people will think you aren’t up on the latest fashion trends.”
My husband tried to break in, but I wasn’t done.
“That reflects poorly on me. Everyone knows I pick out your clothes. They’ll think I’m a bad wife.”
“Are you done ranting?” hubby asked. He pointed to the article. “Monogamy is over. Not monogramming.”
“Oh.” I’m not a bad wife. Just a bad reader.
how are you doing? We haven’t done much in keeping each other writing… but, I have thought of you often. ❤
Same here DAF. I’m thinking of starting up again but on a smaller scale, maybe twice a week. I just need one good idea to get me started.
I am certain a good idea will come to you, sometimes it’s hanging in the back of our minds just waiting to come out… I struggle with that too. Can’t wait to read it!
Here’s the challenge: Whih one of us posts first!
You win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was a great post! Loved it!
This one was easy because it was happening in real-time. I was hit over the head with it. Duh!
sometimes the best things to write about are right in front of us!!
Just hopped over to your blog and see that you’ve been blogging steadily while I have been goofing off for a couple of years. So, yes, I may have won today, but you have it all over me on the blogging stage. Who-hoo for you, DAF
Thank you, but, I still have not mastered consistency! We will get there, won’t we?
Lol. I do this all the time. Monogramming will never die!
Love this! So funny… I misread all the time too… can’t be our age, though… can it? Have missed you! DAF
Never been one for monograms. Mammograms, yes. And monogamy, well way too complicated to deal with any alternatives!
You are the highlight of George’s day, I’ll bet.
The suspense of it – did Time decide that Monogamy is over, or not!?
Really cheered me Susan on this dark and gloomy day.
Bwahahahaha! I do the same thing. I think I read what I subconsciously want to see. The end of monogramming would have stunned me too. 🙂
Good one, Susan!
Thanks, Nealy. Unfortunately, I have a lot of these zingers.
Ha! And I’m all for monogamy being over – I would like to send him somewhere else half the time.
Oh, you naughty, naughty girl!
Thank you for the chuckles this morning … your posts always give me a lift.
Guess I’d better try harder to write more often, then. I like giving you a lift, Rachel.
Could happen to anyone, right? Right?
Now that’s funny! I am sure your husband was perplexed, just for a second!
I perplex him a lot lately, poor guy.
You’re in good company!
A good wife and, I assume, a monogamous one! 😉
Yes, for nearly 44 years. We’ll renegotiate the contract at year 50, though.
Glasses dear, put your glasses on! But the only thing I ever monogrammed was a set of towels. I’m not sure I’d notice if it went out of fashion. As for the other, well, it might make the house work a bit lighter. Knowing my luck it would be a whole bunch of non-dishwashers and clothes droppers.
Ha! And I did have my glasses on, by the way. How sad is that?
