    Some questions/thoughts should stay in your head and not come out to where your spouse can hear them.

    Is she making a watermelon (L.) or an army camouflage tent (R.)?

    She sews all of their clothes, she’s made slip covers for all of the furniture, there’s a quilting class on Thursday, and all of the leftover bits and pieces are braided into day rugs for the floor.

    So that’s why rolls of fabric are called bolts?

    It could be worse, Earl, what if she was trying on clothes and she asked “Does this make me look fat?”!

    If I had one dollar for every time I THOUGHT something like that with my wife, I would have hundreds of dollars cash-in-hand. If I had a million dollars for every time I SAID OUT LOUD something like that to her — well, I’m not yet a millionaire. My mother burned that particular smart-ass reply out of my repertoire a long time ago!

    I do not think that there is a way that he can get out of there quickly. If there is, Earl will not like it.

    My second sister worked at a fabric store for a couple years. She moved almost a ton of fabric when she got married.

    Actual conversation: “Which do you like better, this one or this one?” “They’re both fine. Either one.” “Pick one.” " Ok, that one." “Well what’s wrong with this one?!?!?”

    He should know better than to go fabric shopping with her. Same goes for shoe shopping. Did this once with the spouse, never again. LOL. We got along just fine.

    I will never understand why people make spouses go shopping to places they don’t care about. Earl couldn’t care less about the fabric—does Opal think she’s going to get a helpful answer? Doesn’t she have any female friends?

    Pearl, Pearl, Pearl, take it from somebody who knows: You should be using up all the fabric in your “stash” instead of adding to it. . .

    Idk, Opal is only seen knitting….occasionally….so she buys fabric “just in case” she may need it….one day….

    My wife has learned over the past 49 years(next month)to never take me clothes shopping as I have absolutely no clue what colors go together or should never go together. She also never asks me what paint colors go together, or wallpaper and curtains.

    So, I never understood this urge to drag one’s husband to a store with you if he doesn’t want to go. Why can’t’ they go by themselves?

    If he is paying attention, he will ask what the fabric is for. You just can’t pick out a fabric for nothing unless you want to just stick it on a shelf and look at it. Personally, I think they are both ugly unless they are for coordinating Halloween outfits. Or maybe a shirt for Earl. He will wear anything and neither of those will easily show food stains. Or a bed for Roscoe. Or maybe they have a room where one of those might look good as curtains. Who knows?
