We Had a Funeral Here Today

28 Jan

2015/01/img_14251.jpgThis is dad wearing his favorite Angry Birds shirt.  You might recognize it.  He does it wear it a lot.  Mom picked him up for dinner one night last week and he was wearing it.  When they got to the restaurant, she noticed it had a hole in it.  Do you see the hole in it near the neck?  She couldn’t believe he wore it out like that.  She kind of fussed at him.  What would people think?  She doesn’t clothe daddy?  Daddy told her not to worry about it because it was a holey but it was HIS special shirt, HIS lucky shirt if you will.

But today was a sad, sad day here at the Hotel Thompson. We had to have a funeral. For who? It was for dad’s favorite Angry Bird shirt. Mr Hole got worse and then it became several holes in the shirt.  Dad was wearing it around the house and refused to throw it away.  He told mom he wouldn’t wear it out again.  But now, it was time.

It was time to put dad’s favorite shirt to rest.  May it rest in holey heaven.   In honor of his favorite shirts passing, he hung up his other shirts at half mast.

Don’t feel too sorry for pops though. Mom knew this shirt was his favorite so she had a back up one ready for him as a surprise. Daddy was happy as Houdini with a new toy after that.

Do you have a favorite shirt or toy that you don’t want to give up?

    hahaha…OMC, *sniffs and wipes the tear from her eye*…that sounds like the conversations around here! Really. Dad has his favourite PJ’s that look like…well, what can I say….hell! They don’t have all their buttons and a rip in the shoulder and very well got new PJ’s for him for Christmas but dad likes those ones better. He says there very soft and cuddly…hehe

      Snorts. Yep that’s the way dad was with his favorite shirt. I thought he was going to cry when he threw it away last night. I almost fell over laughing. He looked so sad. XOXO – Bacon

      Snorts. Mom wanted to pitch this shirt way before now but dad wouldn’t let her. He said this was his favorite shirt. He doesn’t know how the super bowl is going to turn out now. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    What a brilliant thing that your Mom had a back-up ready for the eventual demise of #1 Angry Bird shirt……she’s a smarty!

    Hugs, sammy

      It was like a resurrection last night when mom brought it out. Dad grabbed her and gave her the biggest hug. I think I saw him wipe a tear from his eyes. XOXO – Bacon

    Condolences about the shirt. Mom is an out-of-control-thrower-outer. No sense getting attached to anything around here. It’ll be gone and replaced before you know it.

    Love and licks,

      Snorts. Dad is a hoarder that is in control by mom. But that shirt. Oh my. He wore it everywhere. It was like his security blankie. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    I would have saved it for Sunday, being all holey and such.

    • PigLove

      01/28/2015 at 1:37 pm

      That’s true. I may need to see if I can find it for dad to be on the safe side. Things could get iffy Sunday without his lucky shirt. XOXO – Bacon

    That’s so hard to part with something you find comfort in. But it will be great for waxing the car.

      That is true. I will remind dad of that. Thanks my friend. XOXO – Bacon

      Snorts. At least daddy has a back up. He was pleased with that. And it gave mom extra good points 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

    From time to time, I have toys that I love a little too much, if you know what I mean. Then they go to Squeaky Toy Hospital and Mommy sews them up so they can return to my toy basket. Daddy’s old t-shirts go to the rag drawer where, you might say, they are reincarnated to live a second useful life.

    I wish you would not have thrown it away! You could have cut the angry bird front out and made it into a pillow cover! But that was funny that his other shirts were flying at half mast though! RIP angry bird shirt! I hear taps playing in the background.

      Snorts! The angry birds in the murder looked like they had been shot by buckshots – snorts and rolls with laughter. One hole led to another hole that led to a gazillion holes. It was a bad and sad situation for sure. The downing of the Angry Birds – 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

    RIP Angry Birds Shirt…. you did your duty…now ‘fly’ away birdies…..
    (our dad goes through the trash just to be sure the mom hasn’t thrown ‘anything’ he deems important away…)

      Snorts! Dad has been known to do that too cause when mommy gets in one of her cleaning moods – watch out! XOXO – Bacon

    SO FUNNY! It must be a boy thing. My son has a wardrobe filled with nice clothes but he seems to be always tatty and torn. …….:-( LOL!

      Men! Well… that’s what mommy says. It doesn’t matter what mommy buys daddy to wear – he *always* goes for his favorites over and over and over. He says he’s at a point in his life that he needs to be comfy period. Mom lets him do what he wants to a point. 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

      Thanks my friends. I really appreciate that. I think mom was pretty smart of buying a back up. She knew one day she would need it. Dad is SO into Angry Birds these days. XOXO – Bacon

      Oh squeals. Maybe there needs to be a resurrection from the can today… off to see if it has been taken out yet. XOXO – Bacon

    I sure do Bacon! My Bob Marley t-shirt….I have had it for 20+ yrs & sadly last year I realized it had many little tiny holes in it…I have just worn it out 😦
    I now use it as a t-shirt with my pj bottoms…..I really do not want to throw it out…
    My Brother gave it to me so it has sentimental value….
    Glad your Mom had a back up tee ready for Dad. I might have to go to the Mall & see if I can buy a new Marley Tee…..
    Love Sherri-Ellen x0x0

      Snorts! Yes – always a back up on hand is a life saver. Daddy was really upset over his Angry Birds shirt. Sentimental value is something you can’t toss 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

    RIP Angry Bird’s shirt. My son has shirts like that. They have funny sayings and you can’t find around here.

      Exactly! Mommy ordered those shirts off the internet for daddy. He has a few of different ones that he loves. It’s such a sad day to see one go to t-shirt heaven. XOXO – Bacon

    Funny how we humans get attached to certain clothes….we are such odd creatures Bacon!
    Love S-E.

      01/30/2015 at 9:17 am

      Yes ya’ll are. Of course the same can be said to me. I’m rather fond of a certain king sized Egyptian sheet myself. I think I would be lost without it. XOXO – Bacon

    01/30/2015 at 5:16 pm

    Ah Bacon the ‘Ejipshun’ cotton sheet that you & Nylablue spent so much snuggling in…now there is true sentimental value!!!!
    I am attached to my big brown & gold blanket I use during Winter months….it has been wtih me since 1991 & still in great shape… 😉

      We all get attached to our favorites and don’t want to give them up. Mommy has hers too. It was definitely a sad day for daddy but somehow I think that shirt still goes on since he has an identical one now. He calls it AB2. Snorts XOXO – Bacon
