Apricot Skin Apricot Dress

Apricot skin Apricot face Apricot hands Apricot knees Apricot apricots Apricot cat Apricot paint Apricot baby's bottom In my world I always think Of a pricey apricot dress My husband's pal paid way too much for it Wanting to impress a girl who modeled it at a table for us. Wanting to show off that he had three hundred dollars, He gave them three hundred dollars for that dress To surprise his girlfriend, Kathy. Kathy was surprised. She would have never chosen this dress. It was so expensive, he pouted until she wore it to Every dinner, supper, lunch, and finally to play racquetball in. Apricot always reminds me of poor Kathy and her irritation.

Yes, most of the time- although my husband had NO comfy clothes before he married me... can you imagine?! I pride myself on introducing him to the fine art of lounging in fuzzy pants! ;D

And vice a versa. Women should probably stop dressing their husbands too, right?

I always felt badly for her. She never liked the dress.

She was caught, for he was such a pouter, always reminding her of the cost.
