Dust...

... yesterday while getting dressed, I noticed a moth in the walk-in closet... he launched himself off of the Wife's silk sari and headed straight for the light when I flicked the switch... I batted him to oblivion with my fatigue pants before putting them on... but that got me to wondering.. where you see one, there must be others, hundreds perhaps, that are unseen.. quietly munching on the exotic threads in my closet... and the thought of that just wasn't acceptable...

...so this morning I decided it was time to take action... and buoyed by the news of Zarqawi being blown to smithereens, I waded into the closet with a cup of coffee... and a mess met my eyes... suits that have hung on hangers unattended for ages now have a fine layer of dust on the shoulders... my tuxedo - which hasn't seen the light of day since I donned it to sip martinis during an evening with Pussy Galore - was dusty too... even my Punjabi was looking a bit ruffled... my dress shirts hung proudly starched, but were also showing signs of being ignored for far too long...

... the result?... today I am off on a fieldtrip to the dry cleaners... I'll let the kind people behind the friendly counter breathe a little life into my old gladrags... and when I pick them up in a few days, they'll be sealed up in handy-dandy moth-proof plastic...

... besides, it'll be good to have the tux ready for action again... you just never know when a James Bond movie marathon will tug at you to dress for the occasion...

Makes me wonder what heights you will aspire to on the news that bin Laden has officially assumed room temperature... A complete interior remodel? *grin*

Yeah, don your newly-dry-cleaned tux, then go stand in your yard next to that well-hung dogwood tree of yours. Wimmen will flock around you.

Not to look at YOU, of course. They wanna check out the appendage on that tree. You'll just make good background decoration.

Don't forget to wear those faggoty-assed shoes of yours, too.

.. hey Rob?.. now why would I want women flocking around me?.. I'm pretty sure The Wife wouldn't like that very much... and as for my shoes?.. Bite Me... they fucking rock...

(beside the "tree")...
and
off topic, remember how I emailed you about your blog not "remembering" me when I go to comment? Well I've discovered that if I click the permalink to a post and comment there, my information is saved there. Cool...:)

some people ay they use moth balls in their closets but all of the moths that I have caught must have been female..

Bullshitted by GUYK on June 8, 2006 02:53 PM

... ok.. I just have to ask... how do you tell the difference between male and female moths?....

Bullshitted by Eric on June 8, 2006 02:56 PM

Well, I was lookin' for the moth balls

Bullshitted by GUYK on June 8, 2006 02:57 PM

.. indeed... I didn't think of that...

Eric looks damn hot in his tux! He had pictures posted last Halloween of him and a slinky babe on each arm...Hmmm...Wonder where those pics went?

Probably the only ridge runner between I-75 and Pigeon Forge that actually owns a tux.....

Dust on your tux, eh?

Okay, Felix, er, Eric, you're starting to frighten me.

Bullshitted by Jerry on June 8, 2006 10:57 PM

AH YES - nothing like a well dressed man.......

But don't you have to switch from single malt scotch to martinis when you wear the tux? I hear it's illegal to drink scotch while wearing one....
