Embarrassing Things Come in Three

I have an embarrassing confession - my husband owns a pair of leather pants.

Even more embarrassing to admit though is that *I* own a pair of leather pants! I found mine at a Second Hand Store years before I got married. I thought they were funny, and something possessed me to buy them, so I did. Despite the fact that I have moved three times since getting married they have faithfully lived in the very back of each closet - never to be worn.

That is until last evening.

This coming Saturday our church is having a Garage Sale as a means to raise some money to help cover some of the costs for a coming up youth retreat, so I have been going through Paul's stuff (did I actually just say that?? I mean *our* stuff) to look for things to donate.

I found his leather pants amongst a bin of junk, that if I had just added to the pile of things to be donated he never would have noticed them missing. But I had the decency to ask him if I could toss the leather pants. And his answer was no. Actually it was more like "NO WAY!"
I pointed out that he has not once worn the leather pants in all the years I've known him.

Bad thing to say.

He took that as a challenge and decided that we had to stop sorting for the Garage Sale and he had to try on the pants right then - just to show me that he had to keep the pants and so he could claim he had worn them in the last five years :)

As he was pulling on his leather pants he remembered that I owned a pair, and in a moment of stupidity I told him that I still owned them, and he asked me to pull them out and try mine on too. So being the obedient wife that I am I did.

And here is the most embarrassing thing of all - proof that we do indeed both own leather pants.





So tell me - is your vote with me (Garage Sale them both!)
or with Paul (keep them, and pull them out once every five years for a picture) ??

Keep them!!!

Jessica Morris said...

Uh oh! A tie!!

I am leaning more towards Donna's vote though ;)

Daddy said...

Judah was feeling slightly left out when mommy and daddy took family pictures and didn't give him any pants to wear. So after some shopping on ebay, daddy has remedied the problem. http://cgi.ebay.com/LOT-BABY-GAP-3-6-MONTH-LEATHER-PANTS-OLD-NAVY-NWT_W0QQitemZ320146499773QQihZ011QQcategoryZ57765QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Since I am the one that went through the labor pains of having Judah I get final say on his clothes :)
And leather pants are so not in the equation!

10,000 voters voting for leather... said...

mel said...

LOL!

Love those pants. Hot I tell you. :)

I think you should buy Judah a pair, keep them all, if for nothing else... Pictures for us! :)

Garage sale could benefit more than your closet!! AP

Kate said...

Unless hubby plans on becoming a T-Bird or you a Pink Lady...I say scrap the pants at the Garage Sale! OR...Call George Michael! :o)

mum said...

Buy a motorcycle and get tattoos...just joking of course. Is Paul going to go with the results, or do what he wants anyway??? You are too funny!!!

Sarge Charlie said...

i thought they were looking good, maybe not, yep, i would sell them.

Kim said...

As tempted as I would be to keep them and take more pics years from now, I think that you have enough pics of the two of you in leather pants. Judah will be mortified when he's older that you subjected him to that!!! LOL Another vote for garage sale =)

Marcia (MeeAugraphie) said...

I say, both, because the thought of y'all trying them on every five years (or sneaking before hand to be sure you can still wear them) is too good to pass up, but then, garage sale makes sense.

The last picture of daddy and baby is wonderful! Just wonderful.

Pati said...

Keep 'em Jessica! Buy Judah a pair and go out on the town once a year and take annual pics for the blog!
Leather pants through the ages!

THIS IS YOUR FATHER SPEAKING

BUY THE BIG HARLEY WITH THE SIDE CAR AND GET THE KID SOME LEATHER PANTS VEST & JACKET

Jessica Morris said...

I don't think that I have any choice - most of the cotes are for keeping them, but even if they weren't I'd have to listen to Paul anyway ... my mum knows too well that he'll keep them if he wants, and Mrs. Sewell is quite wise with her advice ;)

So, back to the back of the closet leather pants!

Bethany said...

AWESOME!! You must keep them!! Those pants are fabulous. You never know when you'll need them for a biker-themed costume party. :D

The Rock Chick said...

Jessica: I like them! Keep them!!! Besides the fact that you both wear them pretty well (not sure where you'd wear them to, but that's ok!), its fun for the pics!!

Do they make leather diapers? LOL Judah would rock in those!!!

Becki said...

LOL! Despite Flylady's flywashing to be rid of any clothing item you don't regularly use, they make me smile! (And you too, it looks like!) I'll add my vote to the Keep thems!

Ryanne Marmaro said...

Keep them!

The last picture of Paul and Judah is just awesome!

Bethany said...

What a good looking couple! It's true, hubby's do what they want... and it seems the votes are in to keep them anyway. But my say is the pictures are way too great to get rid of them any time soon!

Crystal said...

Sorry hon, gotta side with the man this time. Don't you dare get rid of them, and make sure Judah gets a pair for the next photo.

;o)

Jessica Morris said...

I love the picture of the two of them too - I am thinking of getting in a 5x7 and hanging it up :)
