The Tale of Two Catalogs

These two catalogs arrived in the mail today.

They pretty much sum up how my life has changed since owning an old house.

My old life = jewelry and nice girl stuff. My new life = men's catalogs selling clothing to cover plumber's butt.

Be sure to read the fine print in the second ad to get the full story.

I don't know whether to think its funny or a tiny bit sad.

I like those shirts. I'm a tall skinny guy, so I don't need a huge shirt, yet anything smaller than an XL leaves me with my belly button hanging out like a teenage girl.

Of course, I haven't actually purchased said shirts, but that's another matter.

Some might miss the view, and other will definitely say "Thank God". I guess it depends on the plumber.

Well, I think I can speak for most women when I say - we do not appreciate receiving catalogs that sell clothing to cover plumber's butt.

And....what is up with companies thinking anyone that orders a house related item is male? I am also suddenly receiving every hunting catalog out there thanks to some house company selling my name.

This made me laugh!

Yeah, a day doesn't go by that we don't receive multiple catalogs, especially this time of year!

What's too bad is that the blurb said the shirts were imported. I mean, can't we make anything anymore?
