yellowshorts

In junior high school my friend Kimberly Russell inexplicably announced to me that I’d look fabulous in a yellow dress. If you want to shoot an arrow into the delicate masculinity of a boy in the throes of puberty, telling him he’d look fabulous in a yellow dress is a stellar way to do it. Declaring the aforementioned yellow dress fabulocity in front of a bunch of his friends, as Kim did, is like replacing the arrow with a torpedo. I think I saved face and laughed it off, but the fact that I remember that little wrinkle in time goes to show that it had some sort of an effect on me. Will I wear a yellow dress while shooting people with my rifle from the water tower? Of course not. Combat culottes! But when I was shopping a few days ago I saw a pair of yellow shorts with a blue sailboat print by Hawkings McGill, and they made me remember Kim’s yellow dress comment. I laughed inwardly and bought them immediately. Now every time I wear them I’ll think of Kimberly Russell, which isn’t a bad thing at all, mind you, because even though I haven’t seen her in many many years, Kim’s a cool cat. And Rex is a hot dog*.

    Rex dreams of the days when he wasn’t photo bombed by Penny.

    Those are mighty sportin’ shorts.

    Tim is hot too. And Penny’s butt is white like snow.

    I need to put on my sunglasses, those shorts are so yellow. It’s like staring at the sun (their brightness eclipsed only by the dogs’ adorability, of course).

    You are smokin’ hot in this photo, even more so than usual—and I’m pretty sure it’s not because the shorts are yellow. I do like them though. :-)
