Great Men Think Alike
I’m currently reading Such a Pretty Fat by Jen Lancaster as a part of a comparison-piece I’m doing on all of her books (It’s going to be amazing–stay tuned!). And, because she is so hilarious, I end up reading half of the book out loud to Nic. Take this email a la Jen I read to him a bit ago:
SUBJECT: Jen-Point Quiz
Imagine you’re in your basement sorting your work clothes so you can take them to the dry cleaner. While sorting, you run across your wife’s favorite bathing suit drying on a rack.
What do you do next?
- You put it right back where you found it because your wife expressly instructed you to only grab your work clothes. And as this is plus-sized women’s swimwear, you’re pretty sure you’ve never worn this piece to the office. Also, she yelled at you the seventeen times you accidentally washed and dried it last year.
- You put it right back where you found it because your wife expressly instructed you to stay the hell away from her laundry as she’s still pissed off you shrunk most of her polo shirts when you washed them in boiling water and dried them within an inch of their lives las week and thank God she’s a little thinner and can fit into them because otherwise they’d be ruined.
- You put it right back where you found it because your wife begged you to please, please, please ask her if you ever have any laundry-based questions. And, really? Since you work hard, maybe just leave everything for her because she promises you she doesn’t mind washing all the clothes, especially since nothing gets ruined that way.
- You take the bathing suit directly to the dry cleanerTry to guess how Fletch answered this question.Here’s a hint–it involves a sheet of clear plastic and a hanger.Arrggh.
