Comfort vs Cute-The Truth of the Matter

Mother and I were having lunch recently at the City Cafe in Tuscaloosa. I had made the trip to consign some clothes at Deja Vu Consignment. We were sitting, talking over lunch, "Mom, did you see all the clothes I consigned? Cute clothes too. I guess I have gotten to an age where comfort now wins out over cute. I mean, sure...I love a cute outfit as much as anyone...but if it requires ironing, Forget it! And it MUST be comfortable.", I explained.
She agreed with me, "You know my friend Sharon if a fan of elastic."
I have given up high heels. I gave up linen. But Elastic wasit bands? I won't go that far Mom, Not yet. Though there may come a day, it isn
t now. I do agree comfort is where it's at!".
It was about that time I looked up after taking a bite of my creamed corn. And I almost popped off the head of the guy sitting next to my mother with the corn kernel that spewed from my mouth.

"Take for example, that guy....."

Huh? Mom questioned.
"The matadoor, Mom! That just can't be comfortable. There comes a time when one needs to give up a good looking outfit for comfort."

A few hard pats on mom's back dislodged the beef tip.
"Yeeeees", she agreed, " Now, that guy is having a bad day!"

I hope your day is a good one!
Speaking of food....
Be sure to stop by Plates and Places for Foodie Friday. I am sharing my birthday lunch, prepared by my mom. You will not beleive how good it was (Keetha tune in!)
Who would want to go out to celebrate when Momma makes the best food?
Thanks for participating in Thrifty Thursday! I always enjoy seeing the bargains that you have found!
Thanks for stopping my Bloggeritaville, my friend! Leave me a roadmap! Have a fabulous weekend!

Thanks for the huge laugh!!!!


I'm at that stage, too! No more high heels for me! My daughter in law just tortures her poor feet with extra high heels and pointed toes. She'll learn! :)

Oh funny! Yes - I finally gave up on my last pair of heels just this past year!

KBeau said...

That is too funny. BTW, don't give up linen. I've decided it's just supposed to be wrinkled. You can't do anything about it, so I wear it anyway.

You are too funny. I still try to do cute but not always, no heels for me!

Anita said...

I would offer some kind of witty comment, but I can't....I have tears running down my face and can't see the screen because I'm laughing so hard. Thanks for the uplift!!

A few years ago, I became a fan of elastic. I absolutely love Fresh Produce. There are elastic waists, in most of their pants and options for making a cute outfit.

Hey, elastic can be comfortable too. I just try my best to relegate it to the clothes that I wear at home only.

I hate it when people are coming over and I have to change. I whine, "Does this mean I have to put on real pants?"

Thanks for making me laugh, glad that you didn't kill your mom with that beef tip!

Lisa said...

That picture is hilarious! Thanks for the laugh. :)
