Target really outdoes themselves on husband torture devices. Last year at Halloween, Trudy surprised Chris with a lobster outfit. As soon as I saw it in the store, I started laughing and couldn't stop. Just knowing the joy it would bring to Chris took my breath away. And, then of course, there was the time last season that my parents taped Chris's football numbers to the back of Trudy's pink sweater and had her all suited up and ready to go to the game. Chris was reluctant to admit how darling she looked, but I think I could hear it in his voice when he insisted she was not going to the field like that. So modest. Didn't want anyone else to think he had more cheerleaders than they did.
This time, Target did it all for me, they imprinted "Go Team" on the fluffy pink shirt and made it easy to put on. Only a dollar to bring peace and goodwill and laughter to those you love.
No, Chris didn't laugh. In fact, he pulled into the driveway to pick me up, saw Trudy, and pulled back out again. He rolled down the window and told me I wasn't going if I was taking Tru with me. Apparently, not everyone appreciates laughter and peace and goodwill. Those people are usually the ones that hate Christmas and birthdays and probably like to kick little old ladies. I am suspect of those people.
