Several years ago I had to take my wonderful husband shopping to do a “de-plaid-ing” – a sort of cleansing of his closet. You see, he was very committed to the plaid shirts. Every time he would happily report he’d bought a new shirt, I’d say, “let me see”…and he’d show me and it would be another version of PLAID! So, his choices for a while in his closet were red plaid, brown plaid, blue plaid, green plaid, and an odd assortment of other plaid. Now, here’s the thing, I like plaid, but, I also think variety is a good thing! He was a good sport and kept a few plaid shirts, but allowed me to fill up his closet with a great assortment of other shirts to choose from.
Well, I think it’s time for another intervention. You see, it’s not plaid, now, it’s stripes! He just came home from Old Navy with a bag full of STRIPE SHIRTS. Again, I like stripes, but I’m almost ready for him to bust out the plaid again! 🙂 His closet now has a wonderful assortment of blue stripes, red stripes, yellow stripes, green stripes, brown stripes, etc. I like them, but, we’re seeing an old pattern develop here. HELP! I think I need to go shopping with him again, a “de-stripe-ing” might be needed.
So I ask you, the general public and/or the two friends who actually read my blog, which is better? Stripes of plaid?
