    If I open up my present on VD and it’s one of my shirts, I hope he paid full price

    February 8, 2008

    We are sitting on the couch watching Die Hard 37 and I am meticulously tying pretty red ribbon with pink hearts around my pretty pink “Mommy Needs Chocolate” t-shirts. Are they available on the internet? No, they are not. They are not available on the internet because I can’t figure out how to put the damn pictures in the shopping cart. Trena has promised to come to my rescue but my to-do list has 9 million things ABOVE that project.

    So why am I tying pretty ribbon around pretty shirts? Because I’m gonna take them down to the Pink Pantry tomorrow for the Chinese New Year celebration/party. Can I just say that it helps when one of your girlfriend’s owns the best coffee shop in Fairfax County and that she sells your shirts there? Preschool, your money’s a-comin.’

    But I am starting to get a little insecure. Maybe the intended audience for the shirts–lazy men who have failed to shop for their wives for Valentine’s Day–won’t think they are cute. I decided to try them out on my husband when he asked what the hell I was doing.

    K: Do you think these are pretty?
    D: I guess.
    K: Yeah, but do you think they will sell?
    D: Probably.
    K: I mean, if you saw it in the coffee shop, would you buy it for me?
    D: Babe, are you saying you want me to go to the coffee shop tomorrow and buy a shirt for you?

    I swear to God. The things that come out of this man’s mouth. We got married? Seriously? Seriously. First in his class? Really?

    K: Yeah, Babe. That’s exactly what I’m saying. After I spend 10 minutes putting a bow and tag on each shirt, I want you to go to the coffee shop and buy one for me? HELLO??? NO. If I wanted a shirt, I think I could make my own. I am just asking if you, as a dopey guy, would actually contemplate purchasing this for your wife as a last minute-not your usual Valentine’s Day present?
    D: Actually, BABE. I was just sitting here thinking that it was a pretty cool present to buy. I mean. If your wife is a mom and if she likes chocolate.
    K: There are women who don’t like chocolate?
    D: And it actually looks kinda wrapped. So a guy wouldn’t have to do anything.
    K: THAT is the point.
    D: Yeah, I think they are going to sell.

    Yeah, me too.

    I’ll post a picture tomorrow. All the camera batteries are dead. Sheesh!

      @Stimey. Only if their husbands want to see them naked ever again.

      LOL Stimey!!!

      Dang it … I got a kid shirt & I could have told (warned) the world that Mommy needs Chocolate?!

      Ok … put the pick up & Hubs will just have to get me a late VD present.

      *um – V’day, NOT a VD. Just to clarify*

      Too funny!
      I think the shirts will be a hit.

      wow…I saw VD in the blog title and was expecting a much more bawdy tale… I’m going to go drown my voyeuristic disappointment in nice hot cup of coffee.

      Yea, I thought “VD” was going on a t-shirt and thought….ooooohh this is getting interesting! Good luck today!

      What is this Valentine’s Day of which you speak? Is that some romantic holiday or something?

    9. Rachel says:

      Hey, that could go on a maternity shirt:

      “It could be worse, I could have gotten VD instead…”

      Laughing at Rachel’s comment — or maybe panties that just say “VD” for those of us who want to avoid any more maternity shirts. Giggle. Snort.

      p.s. Kristen, I just saw an ad with a TOTALLY HOT BABE on it:

      Ohh- I want one. Where in Fairfax County can I send my husband??

      (There are women that don’t like chocolate?!?!)

    12. Mark says:

      I bought a present and all I got for it was VD?

      Teaches me to speed read through comments 🙂

      I’m still clueless about the carat to carrot ratio.

      Really I think with events on the hill I’m going to surprise my wife and buy her a vial of HGH and for myself a combo of Viagara, Red Bull and Botox.

      Wrinkles? No Worries!

      Never mind- I see now where you clearly wrote Pink Pantry. That’s what I get for skimming…

      Um, if you’ve done the wrapping, the guys will FOR SURE buy it. Our Kroger has a ‘drive through Valentines shop’. It’s been up for a week. On Thursday there will be a line down the street. *sigh*
