I'm a Grandpa!



Well, not really, but I am well on my way to dressing like one. My new cardigan sweater arrived today. Dig those leather elbow patches. Check out that shawl collar. And, oh, those buttons! Now all I need to do is find a suitable mate, impregnate her with my seed, raise a child, and have him/her reproduce.

Until then I'll be stockpiling Werther's Originals.

For me, sweaters are the new crack. Although this particular one was a Christmas gift, I have purchased 3 others and received another as a present in the past two weeks. One more reason why I love the winter weather.

that would go great with your pipe, micah.

then you could be 'Professor Grandpa.'

sweater season in the north is good only for the stylish layers (esp. for us fatties). but i'm in no hurry to be a gramps yet, despite my sweater selection.

I love summer weather. But that's because I can strip down to just one sweater, instead of the piles and piles of sweaters I wear in winter.

jasdye - Actually, the whole pipe angle was in my mind when I selected this sweater.

You're several steps closer to being a grandpa than me, my friend.

srah - A sweater in summer?! Gadzooks! You must be cold-natured. Or a shill for Big Wool.

Well, I am always cold, but it's also because I spend a lot of time indoors in the air conditioning. I hate air conditioning.

Move to Saipan and I'll find you all the young women with which to spread your seed you want (god, that's a scary image).

Besides, this doctor I'm dating is driving me nuts and I could use a buddy to show the seedy side of Micronesia to. ;)

That sweater is H-O-T. I think guys underestimate how sexy they look in sweaters...

Micah said...

srah - There are starving children in China who don't have air conditioning. You better enjoy it!

George - I was under the impression that the only side of Micronesia was seedy. As I always say, you buy the airline ticket and I'm there. :)

Mags - I think my sweaters will be responsible for bringing sexy back. After all, there's nothing sexier than suede elbow patches.

;) You don't have to tell ME that.

Well, you don't have to worry about me. She's way too young for this old coot. But I may be knocking on your door in 20 or 21 years. I'll be sure to wear my Kevlar vest.
