One of my favorite things to do is make my wife laugh. It just makes me feel warm and fuzzy and even a little taller. Well, years ago I was in a thrift store and I spotted a pair of blue pants that I was pretty sure would make my wife laugh. It’s not that the pants were that funny looking, I could just tell there was a funny story behind those pants. So, I bought the pants and set out to tell their story. I put together a video and showed it to my wife. She was sitting in front of me, so I couldn’t see her face while she watched it. The video ended without a peep from my wife. Not even so much as a snicker. I was ready to walk away with my head held low, when she turned to me with tears in her eyes. She was laughing so hard she was crying. She proceeded to watch it over and over again. Mission accomplished.
The film became part of disturbing family history, and shortly thereafter disappeared. I thought it was lost forever. Every once in awhile we’d talk about the movie, and lament the fact that it was gone. Or, so we thought. I found a CD with the short documentary on it the other day! It’s called My Blue Pants, and I post it here so it will never be lost again. You shouldn’t watch it if you don’t want to see my butt crack. It’s in there, and it is not pretty. I was blessed with many things, but an attractive butt crack is not one of them.
