Shopping is a woman thing. It's a contact sport like football. Women enjoy the scrimmage, the noisy crowds, the danger of being trampled to death, and the ecstasy of the purchase. ~Erma Bombeck
As far as my husband is concerned, Erma got it right….shopping is to women as athletics are to men! He would much rather be competing in the heat than shopping in a mall. But, I do want to clarify that all men are not the same, I know that. I have one son in his twenties that loathes shopping and one son in his twenties who loves it!
Mr. B began his trek toward better health earlier than I and he is now reaping the results. He likes to run a hill at one of our local parks where you can look over the city skyline from the top during the heat and the pounds have begun to melt away. He has gone from a waist size 38 to 35 and his clothes are really hanging on him. The shoulder seams heading down the arm are what caught my attention and his sagging behind in his jeans. But, nevertheless, he did NOT want to go shopping! He is very particular about fabrics, styles, and he doesn’t like places such as Marshalls and Ross. He put it off and postponed it until I....
Told him about the fourth of July sales (50-70% off)
Told him I would go with him
Told him I would buy Starbucks and lunch!
Told him we would park faraway and use it as a way to get clicks on the pedometer!
Finally, I kept telling him how much better he was going to look in clothes that fit! An excellent saleslady also helped in this area…kept the compliments flowing!
Actually, once he got going…it was hard to make him stop. He ended up with three shirts, one pair of Khakis, and four pair of shorts from Eddie Bauer. He also got a great looking pair of shoes at DSW.
Oh well, I might have created a monster! How do the men in your life feel about shopping??
