Today Gabe is wearing a grey t-shirt, purple shorts, and brown flip flops.
So I guess it’s about time we addressed the elephant in the room, hmm? The lingering question that everyone is wondering but that no one wants to talk about:
Why is Gabe wearing these amazing purple shorts and where have they been this whole time??
Well, the story behind appearance of the purple shorts is actually one of tragedy and loss. It is a tale as old as time. And the name of that tale is THIEVERY.
A few weeks ago, as I mentioned in my last blog post, Gabe started spending his days floating in the Puget Sound. It is his prerogative as an adventurer on vacation to do so, and so he did.
Most days, he would come home and drape his Sound-soaked shorts on our balcony, where they could air out and dry off without dripping questionably clean Puget Sound water all over this apartment we live in. With sunny, breezy days being the norm recently, it was a perfect arrangement.
Until one day Gabe went out onto the balcony and found that his red shorts were GONE. Yes, gone. Not underneath the balcony or blown under a car or tree. G-o-n-e, gone.
The night before, we had come home from an evening out and found a couple of the other things from the porch strewn about the yard, as though someone had taken them off the porch and placed them all around. We put everything back on the porch, and thought that was the end of it. We didn’t notice until the next day that the red shorts had been removed and not replaced.
They were great red shorts, and they are missed. Whoever took them, well, I hope you wear those amazing red shorts straight to hell.
But every cloud has a silver lining, and the silver lining of this particular cloud is that the absence of the dearly departed red shorts has meant that a pair of previously unseen purple shorts have now made their way into the daily outfit rotation.
And they, in my opinion, are fantastic.
Let’s hope we see more of them, and let’s hope the justice system starts prosecuting shorts theft.
Hey! I haven’t plugged my popforms work on here in a little while, but I’ve been working really hard and making lots of stuff over there. If you want to know what I am blogging about business-wise, you can do that at https://popforms.com/blog.
We also have a newsletter that I just wrote an edition of — it’s coming out this Friday, and if you want to sign up, you totally could (just click over to the blog, and the signup box is on the right-hand side of the page). I think it’s excellent, and even though it is short on Gabe content (right now we are running at about 0% Gabe photo content) I still think it’s a fun read.
Anyways, it’s just a thought. 🙂
Gabe just finished changing the brakes on my car, which, if my lifelong viewing of Murder She Wrote and Columbo are to be believed, means he is trying to murder me as I drive recklessly over a mountain pass. Or maybe it just means he is a very handy boyfriend. What a guy!
