There are not many things in our marriage that we really disagree on. For the most part Brent and I mesh very well. There is, however, one issue that seems to keep cropping up. Brent has this sweatshirt. A treasure, so he tells me, from Guatemala. I would try to describe it, but no description does it justice. So here are some pictures of THE sweatshirt.
Here is a close up, you can see where some pen ink stained Porky Pig's left eye.
Brent's favorite part is the back which lists all of Jordan's stats in the shape of a 23.
Now you may be thinking what is the problem. One of my biggest fears is being that over-controlling wife who tells her husband everything he can and cannot do. I really do like most of Brent's clothes and I usually just smile when he puts on something I don't like. I draw the line at this sweatshirt. Sure it is charming, I love the Looney Tunes. I even think Michael Jordan is great (we have a huge poster of him hanging up in our office). I am fine if Brent wants to wear it camping or while hanging out on a Saturday. But when he attempts to wear it to work or school... that's another thing. I tried to hide it once, but he found it. This ugly sweatshirt keeps showing up and every time he attempts to wear it in public I roll my eyes until he changes.
So, what do you think? Am I too controlling? Or is it okay for me to tell him no on this? Any other wives out there have clothes you don't let your husbands wear in public?
On an unrelated note, saw this idea on pinterest and LOVE it-- I wrote on the washer in dry-erase marker all of the clothes that cannot go in the dryer. Brent often starts a load and I'll be home to throw it in the dryer, or vice versa, and when all of the clothes are wet sometimes it is hard to figure out what's in there that cannot be dried. Here's hoping this saves us from any more laundry disasters.
