Best sentence of the day

We had a big family get together at my house tonight (what will happen to our family dinners when we move to a smaller place? hmmm…) Anyway, at one point my mother looked over at my husband’s work boots. She couldn’t see them clearly from where she was sitting or the entire conversation never would have happened, as it’s really really obvious that they aren’t women’s boots. In fact, they’re Wescos, which are commonly used for firemen, linemen and in our case, treetrimmers. All she could see was the tops of them – which are leather and knee-high. She looked at me and said, “Are those yours?”

Of course I couldn’t just give her a normal answer (“No, they’re the old man’s work boots). Instead I looked her straight in the eye and said, “Yeah, they are. I just got ’em so I could use them on the stripper pole in the bedroom. I like to hang upside down while I wear them. And I charge twice – once at the front door, and once before I break out the boots. Want a lesson?”

She just about died laughing. We all did, actually, mostly because two of my sisters were convinced I was telling the truth about the pole and wanted to learn how. Finally I got up and picked up one of the boots and held it up for my mom to see. “Do these look like stripper boots?” I asked her. She was laughing too hard to say yes or no so I walked over to the tall lamp next to her and bent it forward and hooked the boot upside down on the pole. “How’s that look to you?”

At that point, she started crying, she was laughing so hard. So the best sentence of the day is, in honor of this boot episode, “How’s that look to you?”
