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

Hogleg makes a valid point. All the OFG's in my lineage wouldn't have been caught dead in shorts.

Man, you should have heard the wailing from my boys a month ago when I instructed them to wear pants for our hike in the desert. I also made them wear long sleeves.

You are all insufferable slaves to fashion convention until, and only until, you go out to a public beach or pool with your speedo on.

I thought I had finally surpressed that memory, but this brought it back. On our honeymoon, a senior citizen in the next balcony was wearing a speedo and two eldery women were with him not wearing much more. If only there was some way to wash my memories.

That reminds me. Even my swim shorts are cargo style.

Never owned a pair of cargo shorts. Will now.
Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:6,7 ESV

I do not own cargo shorts. I do own a couple pair of cargo pants. They are handy, I admit. I can drop a small handgun in one and extra mag, knife, and flashlight in the other. Or pipe, pouch, lighter, and pipe tool in one pocket if I'm carrying a sub-compact IWB. It just depends on where I am working on a given day.
It sounded better when the voices in my head were saying it.

Yeah, we've seen it already. We know all too well what he looks like with a speedo and lots of guns and hair.
