ATTN: Cargo short wearers

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

Looks that way.

Those are your two best sentences. I'm going to cut them out and put them on the refrigerator.

Don't forget to put the gold star on it for good spelling.

You have an issue with this fella's attire? Shorts that fit and aren't capri pants, a proper shirt that lacks a silly phrase, and comfortable, versatile shoes?

Metrosexual, hipster, spornosexual: why do we keep redefining men?
Ten years ago, men were metrosexual, but now I’ve lost track. Currently, the spornosexual, a more body conscious and sexually explicit version of the metrosexual, is vying with the check-shirted, bearded lumbersexual for top spot. Nattily dressed and neatly bearded, the “dandy wildman” and the hipster also abound, too.

These are men’s consumer lifestyles. If you want to be a spornosexual, you buy gym membership, protein and some expensive photography equipment to spruce up your Instagram feed. To be a hipster, go to vintage clothes shops, buy the most obscure craft ales, and some beard oil.

I'm wearing cargo shorts to church today
“I believe that many who find that "nothing happens" when they sit down, or kneel down, to a book of devotion, would find that the heart sings unbidden while they are working their way through a tough bit of theology with a pipe in their teeth and a pencil in their hand.”

I let my son wear cargo shorts and flip flops to church yesterday. He needed the space. He was hotdogging on his sister's bike, wrecked, and skinned both knees and the tops of his feet and toes pretty bad. A small bible will fit in the pockets.

If it had a full brim and was lighter in color, I'd be all over that bad boy.

The other day I saw this article. I was reading along, generally disagreeing with them, when I came across their solution to cargo shorts - chino shorts:

I figure that settled it for me. I am absolutely in favor of cargo shorts if chino shorts are the alternative.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

Yeah, where's the pockets? Oh right, that would make them cargo shorts.

I say, if a man wants to wear something, he should just go ahead and stop being such a nancy about it.

Except for cargo shorts.
