    Mrs : You look like a bum in that robe and slippers!

    Mr.: What? This Robe? whatsamater with it?

    Mrs: its as old as dirt and looks like you fought a war in it.

    Mr: Its not that old.

    Mrs: I gave you that robe in 1982.

    Mr: Your point?

    Mrs: Ahhhhhh. ( doing that eye roll thing)

    So this arrived-


    Waffle weave robe and some new LB Evans slippers!

    Let me know when she makes you throw away your old dirty tarnished straights and I'll pm you my address ;).

    Reminds me of when SWMBO buys me new BVDs and surreptitiously throws my old, soft, lived in ones away. Those slippers look nice and comfy! You married a Gem!
  3. She digs you! You are a lucky guy to receive such a lovely gift
  4. So let me see if I understand this right. You and the Mrs. got in a disagreement and you wound up with a gift the next day? What's your secret?
  5. You are blest!!
  6. Wow beautiful gift. I an see a lot of thought and care went into buying that robe and slippers, enjoy.

    Nice! :thumbup:
  8. You are going to love those Evans slippers. I have found that they make the some of the best and most comfortable slippers on the market. It sounds like you have a great wife.

    Sometimes SWMBO informs me that some my t-shirts are too old. I usually ask her what year she was born and then very quickly duck out of the room :innocent:
  10. I think I'll leave this thread up in a conspicuous place and go put on my ratty old robe before parading around in front of SWMBO...
  11. Just think - you won't need another new robe until 2042! :w00t:

    Wear it proudly!
  12. Very nice, you did well!!

    What? No cravat? :wink:
    Dont wear your new ensemble when you are jarring your pickles.

    Jim, was it a gift from Mrs. Goose? I didn't get that. I thought you were showing her that you cared what she thought and pulled the trigger yourself.

    Nice gift. I think I'll show your post to my wife. Her remedy would be just to throw out what she considers old and when I ask her where it is to tell me it was time I bought a replacement. :huh:
  16. Very nice!

    It was a gift for a small occasion. The B&B mods have a long tradition of marrying up, in my case by quite a bit. Lucky fellow I am indeed.
  18. Blessed Man and some cool slippers. I still get mine from Wal mart.
