Could you please get your suit for the wedding out dear…

Yep, I decided to blog about my hubby again, he’s such good material that perhaps I’ll begin writing weekly stories about him. Soooo, lots of you know that we leave today for a big wedding in Chicago this weekend for our niece, but I probably didn’t mention that it is also black tie optional and at the Waldorf downtown Chicago. So, kind of a fancy event, a bit different than my son’s upcoming wedding outdoors in Texas in six weeks. When I went dress shopping for the Texas wedding six weeks ago I also purchased a new black dress for the Chicago wedding and new shoes and so I’ve been prepared for quite some time. I will use my purchases for the groom’s dinner for my son too! Anyway, I’ve been bugging my husband for quite some time about checking his suit and shoes and shirt so that we can make sure all is in order. Yeah, yeah, yeah he would say, it’s all good and in my closet. Well, you should probably pull in out soon I would add so that we can make sure. As usual he mumbled whatever. The two week countdown for the wedding came and so I ever so nicely reminded him of all that needed to be done before we leave for the wedding because we are bringing our grandson Nolan home with us from the wedding for the week. Our grown kids arrive for the big family shower and cabin getaway next weekend…in other words I told him all that we had to get done now and would he please get that suit out too. Oh, the suit is in the closet and just fine he says! We had lots of chores to do at the cabin and my husband didn’t mind running up to do those because that’s where he wants to live but could he possibly check on the suit, NOPE!!! Ok, so yesterday, Thursday, the morning before we leave I’m getting ready to head to the shop and he says oh by the way here’s what I’m wearing to the wedding….it was a suit coat and Dockers…I kinda screamed, WHERE’S YOUR SUIThe says right hereTHAT”S NOT A SUIT…well that’s what I have…WHERE”S YOUR SUIT PANTS…I don’t have them, I haven’t had them for a long time…WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU HAVEN’T HAD THEM FOR A LONG TIME…I haven’t had them for a long time… (in other words they didn’t fit and he must have gotten rid of them)…WELL DEAR, YOU CAN NOT WEAR DOCKER PANT’S WITH A SUIT COAT TO A BLACK TIE OPTIONAL WEDDING…why not…BECAUSE YOU CAN’T…I don’t have anything else…I SUGGEST YOU GO TO MEN’S WEARHOUSE AND SEE IF YOU THEY CAN HELP YOU FIND NEW PANTS TO GO WITH YOUR SUIT COAT AND GET A QUICK ALTERATION…I don’t have time today…MAKE TIME… and he stomped out of the house. Later he called me at work to say that he did indeed go to Men’s Warehouse and then added… see it all worded out, I don’t know why you have to get so worked up over these things! Oh my, what am I to do with this guy – Rox
