The Case Of The Missing Yellowbox

I don't usually do 2 posts in one day. Heck, y'all know me. I don't even do one post a day. But I had some errands to do today involving returns and I got the giggles on the way home over one of them and I just had to share. My Cat Daddy is one in a million. He knows I love Yellow Box flip flops more than just about anything. He looks for shops selling them any time he is out. I don't know why he is so tolerant of just this brand of shoes, but hey, I'm not complaining. Anyway, I digress. I've also told y'all about some of the Christmas gifts I've received from him over the years because there was a sale going on . He'll buy anything marked clearance. Remember the maternity blouse? Bless his heart, he's given me some dandies, but this year he really wanted to surprise me with something I love. He had found this shop selling Yellow Box house shoes and bought me a pair complete with gift wrapping. He was so tickled with himself he decided to go back and buy a pair for our daughter and daughter-in-law as well.Christmas Eve rolls around and he is so excited about how happy he is going to make his girls. (BTW, they didn't come in Trashette's size or she would have got a pair as well). So first Jenn and Misty open theirs. Misty holds her pretty pink pair up, Jenn holds hers up, everyone looks at me and says "What did you get, Mom?" I open my box and hold up my ONE shoe! That's all that was in there. Poor old C.D. jumps off the sofa and starts digging in the box and gift sack, thinking I'm kidding. One Shoe! Only C.D. would buy his wife one shoe. He swears that he and the girl helping him checked before she gift wrapped it. Talking about waiting for the other shoe to drop!
Of course, when I went back to the boutique today, there was my other shoe still on display. The owners remembered him and were talking about how cute he was buying shoes. I'm wondering how they got their inventory to balance with that one shoe sitting there all alone. But let me tell you, these are the greatest! So comfy and warm and aren't they just the sweetest? And isn't he?

It has been my policy over the years never to call another woman's husband sweet but with your permission I will. I've met Cat Daddy and he is sweet, in the most masculine form of the word!
