day ninety-five: a no-no

Ancient Burton proverb:

Men should not buy their wives clothes for Christmas unless said wives pick the clothes out.

Or if said clothes are cute socks. It's hard to go wrong with cute socks.

A no-no in our house! But a wife can buy a husband clothes (unless it's my one sister). Interesting how that works.

Oh yeah. I can fill my whole husband's closet without him shopping with me, but I don't even want him shopping for the smallest item for me.

You know it!

As far as buying for my husband, I tend to think he'd still be wearing clothes from ten years ago unless I shop for him. :)

Husbands should also not buy their wives brooms and oven liners.

Ah, but if you happen to be married to someone who has impeccable taste, then that proverb doesn't apply.

The bigger issue is the whole size thing.
