I have to tell you the joke Dad & I played!!!

Dad and I went to Mr. Formal to pick out his tux and get him fitted.

Oh, here's some background: Dad does NOT where pants (only shorts) and even worse is anything resembling dress clothing. He has been in a tux about four times in his life and had to be forced every time. He wears shorts everyday, even in snow, and his only nice pants are jeans which get worn at funerals and weddings ONLY.

Okay, so back to the story, we went to Mr. Formal (his 5th time wearing a tux) and when we were getting ready to leave, we thought it would be funny if we told Mom that we ordered him tuxedo shorts. The gal who helped us was AWESOME and printed us a fake receipt with tuxedo shorts on it!!

The look on my mom's face was PRICELESS when she saw that receipt. It was hilarious!! We had to pull out the real receipt pretty quick or she would have went into hysterics, but it was great!!


  1. LOL! That is hilarious! Good job getting your dad to wear a tux, it sounds difficult!

  2. Oh believe me, it is difficult to get him anywhere near pants much less a jacket too! I was figuring I'd be lucky getting him into a suit!
