The Great Shirt Rebellion
Last week, three of Cody's work shirts formed gaping holes in the elbow. It was nearly unbelievable. It seemed like every day when Cody came home from work he'd hold up his arm and show me that the elbow had worn down and broken in yet another shirt! These shirts were of all different ages (but not incredibly old), and at least two out of the three were LLBean brand. His Lands' End shirts have never worn through the elbow. It got to be a ridiculous thing, as you can imagine, as shirt after shirt had the exact same problem. And, losing three dress shirts all in one week has taken a serious toll on his wardrobe. Not to mention, one of them was a favorite of mine. Instead of the plethora of solid white or blue shirts he owns, it had a purple stripe pattern. I guess he'll be getting some new shirts for Christmas, along with some elbow moisturizer cream.
