Do I look good in this

‘Do I look good in this and I want the honest truth?’ ‘Well honey it would help if you stepped outside the booth.’ ‘The zip’s a little tight’ she said, so I knew the task ahead, But I couldn’t really tell her to choose something else instead. ‘What do you think? Is the colour right and what about the length?’ ‘I’m not Yves Saint Laurent’ I said, someone give me strength. There are women all around the place, there are women everywhere, Being outside the changing rooms, where’s appropriate to stare? A hundred outfits later and not a single item bought, Despite vocal approval of the complimentary sort. And so alas we return to the item at the start, ‘This is my favoured choice’ she said. At least now we can depart!!

Thanks Jan, I'm honoured! Got to admit to also mess with my phone whilst out shopping, usually writing bits of poetry to be honest. Best wishes..Ron xx

G'day Ronald … this is classic humour. One wrong word and would have been sent to Coventry. Only men would pity your dilemma - thanks Ronald - Lindsay

lol... this is why I prefer to shop alone...I could go to the mall and spend a whole day and come home with nothing some days and other times I could come home with a new wardrobe … good write Ronald... Happy Valentine's Day to you! hugs
