classy, german mustaches

For the past few months we’ve been developing a family tradition each Wednesday night: ice-skating. Since our local fitness center/iceplex offers open-skate and is free for members, we decided it would be a great way for the girls to practice their ice-skating skills. It turns out that the girls were unable to sign up for anymore classes until they are 6 unless they repeat the classes they’ve already taken, so we figured we’d just keep practicing with them each week instead (it’s much cheaper this way anyway). The girls do seem to be making improvements each week. We even let me them skate with each other while Mike and I have couples skating. Too bad they never play REO Speedwagon or Journey.

Every once and a while we split up and each skate with one of the girls. Mike was skating with Annie when he asked her if he should grow a mustache. Her reply, “No, it would be too classy. Like a German.” Mike had been doing so well lately not mentioning or thinking about mustaches, but his lovely sister, Sara, had to go and find this fabric to show him. Now it seems it’s all he can think about. Thanks, Sara! Thank goodness the fabric costs $36/yard which is outrageously expensive, and even Mike knows it’s not worth that much of an investment.

    You’re welcome!

    Too classy? Like a German? Germans are classy? Get out the leiderhosen and knee socks, everybody! It’s time to be German!

    Annie is so funny!

    I think that $36 is reasonable for the quality you are getting. I think its a question of mustaches, and no price is too high.

    I won’t say “jumpsuit” here, but I am certainly tempted to.

    Where does Annie get her material? We know Mike gets his from Sara, but where does Annie get hers? Maddie was my percocious one, still is. I think the mustache fabric is atrocious enough to be cool.

    Between the expensive fabric and a new pistol for the Mrs., Mike you have double incentive to be the “best boy” you possibly can. Nothing like a “carrot” dangling in the front and a pistol toten’ mama bringing up the rear to keep a guy in line!

    A small price to pay for epic fashion. Shame on you for not purchasing it already. Just the kind of fabric that would be apropos for an aloha shirt.
