Flashback Friday-Christmas Overalls

It was our Senior year of High School. Kurt and I had just made ourselves an official couple 2 months prior to Christmas. As Christmas time was approaching the big question arose, "What do I get Kurt for Christmas." I'm sure Kurt must have asked himself the same thing. Since it was our first christmas as "a couple" I wanted to get him something good. I in return had high expectations of his gift to me.

When the big day arrived, I was at home with my family and he was at home with his. I saved the best for last-Kurt's present to me, his girlfriend. (aaaahhh, insert sigh) My family was there and just as anxious as I was. I tore into the wrapping paper, and removed the lid from the box to find what I thought were a pair of jeans. To my surprise, as I removed them and held them up, it wasn't a pair of jeans; but a pair of overalls. Now these weren't just any overalls. They were Dickies in brand and they were of a dark denim color. They had shiney gold button fasteners, adjustable straps, and a frickin' 52 INCH WAIST!

Seriously? Seriously! I thought it was funny that my hunny was trying to be funny. Now where's my real present?! Tell me I did not just buy you a Redsand hoodie and Guess cologne to get a pair of overalls with a 52 inch waist as a christmas present from my boyfriend!

Well Kurt was serious (bless his heart), and this was my Christmas present. I have to say that I was disapointed in the fact that he thought this was good present for his new girlfriend. I never told him at the time that I couldn't believe that he seriously gave me a pair of oversized overalls. The style at this time was baggy pants sagged down to your butt, with your wallet chain flopping around at your side. I guess the "baggy" overalls were cool in his minds eye. As his girlfriend I got over it. I did flatter him and I have no idea why, but I wore those overalls to school one day. That was the only time I wore them. He thought they were so cool and that I was so cool for wearing them. I'm sure Kurt was getting multiple fist pounds from his friends for buying such an item.

Note to any male readers: DO NOT buy your wife or girlfriend overalls-EVER!

These are the actual overalls. As you can see, Lisa and Katie each fit in one leg with no problem.

Holy Crap! Kanani, that's funny. I once had a boyfriend that bought me a present (I saw it in his car) a good present even, for some reason he NEVER actually gave it to me.

How are you? Jennica
