A sense of humor is very important. Take this photo for instance. I know that I don’t actually look glamorous, but I can pretend that I do, even in this get-up. Get-up, now that’s an expression I’ve never typed before. It looks a little funny. Anyway, I call it my John Travolta outfit. It reminds me of the white suit he wore in Saturday Night Fever, minus the mud stained bottom and paint drips, of course.
I wore this a couple of weekends ago when I was helping the dear hubster take off the vinyl siding that the previous owners put on half of the house. A little FYI here for all you home owners. It is much better, and cheaper to pay to have the whole house painted than put vinyl siding on half of it. I swear.
As I was saying, it was awfully cold outside (the weather not matching the orginal forecast when planning this monstrous task), and I knew that this outfit would keep me warm and free of icky debris. It did the trick, while also slowing traffic in front of our home. Here is a simulated dialogue:
“Oh my gosh honey, slow down! But not too much, we don’t want to call attention to ourselves.”
“What on earth? Is that a man or a woman? And what on earth is it wearing?”
“Crap, I think it saw us, speed up, speed up!”
Back to that sense of humor. Had I not been graced with a very healthy one, I would not be able to laugh at myself while wearing this outfit, cope with life’s difficulties, or write blog posts about Hans and Sven.
Life is good!
