STAIN

Its a beautiful day outside. You decide to go onto your porch with a nice cup of lemonade to relax.You soak in the view of a crystal clear blue sky. You reach for your refreshing cup of lemonade and you put it to your lips and Hey I dont feel anything going into my mouth. Then you realize it spilled on your nice light colored shirt.

You at first are in amazement that you actually pulled that act off. Then you watch as the stain is now setting in. you rush to get a rag or napkin to wipe it off. You look in the kitchen opening shelves and closets quickly. You look down at the stain as if you were just shot and looking for help to stop the bleeding. You find the "help" you need and you are now rubbing at that stain rapidly.Your method doesn't work all to well, too bad you don't have one of those tide pens that clean stains instantly. (and you thought you would never need one).

So now you don't want to keep that shirt because you have unclean shirt phobia. Also what will people think of you if you have an unclean shirt. The only way an unclean light colored shirt is going to pass as okay, is if you are a Yeshiva Bochur with Cholent stains, tzitzis hanging out, and your hat sideways, but you are not one of them so forget it. Lucky for you, you are somewhat optimistic so you think that it was a good thing it happened when no one was around. You end up changing your shirt to a non light colored shirt and feel good about the fact that you ruined your favorite light colored shirt....NOT IN PUBLIC.

This post was inspired yesterday in middle of another post. Maybe you know why.

Soak the shirt in lemonade and distribute the color evenly. Problem Solved.

Ha, yet another reason not to wear white shirts as I posted on teh subject recently.

I'm a big fan of orange and blue.

Child Ish

Great Idea

Jacob Da Jew

I used the term light colored shirts Orange and blue are light colored unless you have a dark blue.

You said you were on your porch, so that means your next to your house, so why not just change shirts?

Childish: that was funny.

Actually I dont have a porch in front of my house, This is about you (not you specifically) not me so its written in a form of you. In the end You did get a different shirt I forgot to write that.

The Babysitter said...

right, I know it wasn't a specific story, but once you gave that setting, changing seemed easy. If you would have said that "you had left your house on the way to an important meeting, taking a drink of lemonade..." then it would be a different story, cause then you can't change.

I added something on in the end just to make you feel better. (that was Mikeinmidwood trying to be funny but the added something on is true)

The Babysitter said...

well considering the "you" is a guy, because of the yeshiva bochur reference, then "you" would be allowed to change shirts in public, so not that great a thing that "you" didn't have to change in public. Plus you should have an undershirt and tzizis on already, so nothing shows when you change shirts. Plus you would first have to get the shirt from somewhere, so the place where you get it from won't be a public place. The shirt doesn't appear out of no where in public, unless somebody has a spear shirt and they give it to you in the street.

(I think I'm thinking too much into it, as if its a mystery to solve)

(and you are thinking into it too much. been studying books lately?

The Babysitter said...

I haven't really been reading books lately, I guess I was just in the mood.
