Stupid Questions....

PreacherMan went to Target the other day and while he was there, he decided to get me some stockings to wear to church. When I'm pregnant I can't stand regular pantyhose (too tight) or maternity pantyhose (fall down), so I usually wear thigh high stockings which are not affected by my belly.

Now, to set this up, PreacherMan is a pretty big guy. He's 6'1" and about 240 pounds, and has a full beard.

So, he's wandering through the hosiery aisles and finds an employee. He approaches her for help finding what he's looking for. Here's how the conversation went:

PreacherMan: "Excuse me, I'm looking for some thigh high stockings. Could you point me in the right direction?"

Employee (with an exasperated look) "Well, I don't know if we carry those." She turns back to what she's doing. He tried again.

PreacherMan: "You always used to carry them. Where would they be?"

Employee, with great reluctance brings him over to the correct section.

PreacherMan: "I'm not sure about how these sizes work, could you help me?"

Employee, purses her lips, makes a face and says: "How much do you weigh?"

Hilarious! I read the story aloud to my friends at work and we all had a good laugh as we imagined the scene unfolding! :)
