Undergarment Overreaction

| Romantic | November 1, 2012

(I’m shopping in the men’s socks/underwear section, when I overhear the following conversation between an elderly couple—probably in their early 70’s—buying boxer shorts for the husband.)

Husband: “These are fine.”

Wife: “I don’t know if I like the pattern on these. Don’t they have anything else?”

Husband: “No, they’re all just different types of plaid. Who cares?”

Wife: “Well, I want them to look good on you.”

Husband: “For God’s sake! They’re d*** boxer shorts! You’re the only one who ever sees them on me, and as soon as you do you just want to take them off of me anyway!”

Wife: “Oh, my goodness! You save that talk for home!”

(She hurries away, past me. The husband follows behind her, but sees me chuckling silently to myself and he catches my eye knowing I heard the whole thing. He pauses briefly to give me a wink then holds up his fist for a fist bump. I return the fist bump.)
