Need For Shopping

Like it or not, and I don’t, I’ve got to go shopping soon. I’m in dire need of some new bungies, and, it appears, some new jeans. I blew out one pair in major league fashion, and I’ve got a second pair that would like to do the same. Since I’ve only got three pair, or had three pair, with me, I’m running low.

When my jeans wear out, they usually wear through just above the knees. The crotch gets thin, and sometimes will develop holes, but the knee does them in. Once they wear through, and a hole shows, it’s all over. While I’m working, my jeans will drag on my legs, and if I’ve got to do any bending, squatting, or stretching, that drag rips the crotch out.

A while back, a fellow blogger posted a picture of his jeans… they were on their last leg (no pun intended). Not trying to outdo the lad, but this pretty much spells the end of your jeans… (see extended entry)

Notice, I took care, as did Eric, to keep the boy hidden from view.

This is a pair of pants that can only be worn in a few places, now. They do provide great air flow, so that’s a plus, but not too many folks like seeing them. Especially when worn with the bungies posted below. Not the best ensemble…

My second pair of jeans has been going for a while now, but the hole above the knee just grew the other day. A good sweaty day, and that’s all she wrote. They’ll be in just the same shape as my church pants… check them out.

Again, modesty came into play, as you can see. I probably would have been alright, but you never know what’s going to happen. I don’t like my picture being taken, but Sluggo might.

Anyways, I’ve got to go shopping.

For about 3 seconds i was imbued with pure terror.

Then I realised that laughter is usually the accompanying sound to Sluggo so I was safe :)

Be careful down there man. I have to replace a pair of mine as well today

I've heard that good air circulation is healthy for the "boys".

When I read the 'rub to enlarge' I nearly lost it! Geesh! Big Jim and the Twins really wanted out of their cage!

What? I don't see anything wrong with those jeans. I'll be they look just great! ;-)

Christ dude, warn us better next time. That is a mental picture that is going to stick with me all weekend.

Thanks for ruining my weekend.

T1G - are those hammerhead sharks on your bungies?? Not that I looked close or anything...

(Whales?? You tryin' to give sluggo a boost by covering him with itty bitty whales??)

Holy crap. I don't know what to say! You have left me speechless and to think that the gauntlet has been thrown now according to SWG... Ack!

Seriously, I had to come back and write this... I'm laughing and I keep thinking, 'Oh My God, I just looked at T1G's crotch!" Ack!
