Men and their underpants!
So, last weekend while in Ft. Worth during a break in the meetings, Jeff came up to the hotel room and complained about his undershirt. He said "I hate how it bunches up around my waist when I'm walking, and my shirt is still tucked in." I immediately thought of an image burned into my mind - my dad walking around his room, getting ready for yet another business trip, with his always-present Fruit of the Loom white undershirt tucked into his requisite Fruit of the Loom whitey-tighty underwear! So, I suggested that Jeff do the same. Problem solved! Well, today, on his way to yet another business trip, he said "you know, that undershirt tucked into the underwear trick is the best thing since sliced bread!" He had been dealing with this "problem" for years and wow, his highly intelligent wife came up with an ingenious solution! I said "well, Jeff, you're 40 years old now and you finally learned to dress like a man!" He also said he remembered once when he bought his first suit, the salesman might have mentioned this "trick" but "he used a foreign word or something!" I said "like, 'briefs'?" to which Jeff replied "Yeah! That was the word!" Foreign, indeed.
