Issue 5 – Gold Birkenstocks = Powder Blue Leisure Suit
Today my wife put these on her Christmas wish list:
Gold Birkenstocks? On a 43-year old? These are an abomination! Apparently they are in style now, but so were speedos and pegging your jeans. The wish list has not just one, but two pairs of these horrible things, with the second pair in silver:
I told her I am refusing to buy these and if anyone else gets them for her I am going to start wearing pleated pants, which she hates. Does anyone have any other ideas? I’d like to open it up to the Society of International Men of Leisure for some of their creative thinking here.
Another idea that I had is to start wearing a powder blue leisure suit courtesy of Cousin Eddie in Christmas Vacation…
In the 1970’s they used to have leisure suit conventions. Maybe we should bring these back as part of an annual event for the Society of International Men of Leisure. Here’s a great picture from the 70’s of the fun that can be had at a leisure suit convention…
To be continued after Christmas when we find out whether Gold Birkenstocks are under the tree. Or maybe they will be hung on the tree as an ornament. If they are, 2019 will be the year of the powder blue leisure suit for me.
At your leisure and merry Christmas,
An International Man of Leisure
