Amy is having another “getting to know bloggy husbands” edition at her blog today, and I couldn’t pass up the chance to expose something my husband owns that I would like to burn, throw away or see eaten by a shark (without him in it, of course).
The Ugly Eagle Shirt has been in Husband’s life for 10-plus years. Here, in no particular order, are the reasons I hate The Ugly Eagle Shirt.
1) It has a big eagle on it. Husband is not a Confederate nor is he Native American.
2) This shirt has air conditioning. Big time. See?
3) The Ugly Eagle Shirt actually talks. Here is what it says: “Me ‘n’ Bobby Mark, we use ta go muddin’ back der in da crick*. No need fer enny fancee ATV er nuttin’, we jest souped up Bobby Mark’s ol’ 1978 Chevrolet pick-up. The same one we use ta lay a little patch a rubber in front a the courthouse.” Then I usually interrupt The Shirt.
4) Husband has been known to actually wear The Shirt in public when I am with him. It is for this reason that I hide The Shirt.
Thankfully, since it’s just a shirt and not actually attached to his person, I can usually overlook the atrociousness of it all.
*This is another contention between us. Since it is spelled with two Es, I cannot possibly imagine that creek could be pronounced “crick.” But that’s just how Husband says it. 🙂
How about you? Anything your other half does or owns that drives you nuts? If you’re planning to post about it, let me know because I’d love to stop by and hear!
