… when it comes to wearing blue jeans. One year ago Kris forced a pair of blue jeans on me: “Let’s go get something for you that you don’t want but something you need” sort of claim. So, I went along with her plan to buy some blue jeans — I hadn’t worn any for about 20 years — and by the end of the second week she had to find me unguarded to wash them. Recently, due to wearing out the first pair (let’s just say there were holes that couldn’t be repaired) we bought another pair — the first, some Lee’s Dungarees carpenter jeans, lasted one year. The second pair are a JCPenney brand of carpenter jeans. You can teach old dogs new tricks.
