He clearly lacks self-preservation skills.
Unexpectedly, I found a pair of undies that "hold it all in" and most importantly, stops the jiggle. Basically, they are skin tight spandex that go from your butt/crotch to up to below your boobs. This is exactly what I need to wear under a couple of sundresses I have. So I bought them. Then my neighbor friend bought a pair. We were cracking up wondering what our husbands were going to say about these uber sexy underwear.
When I got home, I pulled them out and showed them to my husband. The look on his face was the equivalent of what I would expect when a man imagines his mother naked. He then said, yes he really said it, "Why don't you just do some sit ups." Lucky for me, or maybe lucky for him, I am not easily offended, easily hurt, and I don't easily have my ego knocked down a peg. Lucky for me AND him, I have a pretty good sense of humor. I laughed and made some comment along the lines of "why would I need to do sit ups when I can just buy undies that have the strength of a suit of armor?"
Later, I was outside doing something when I saw my friend's husband out on the driveway (our driveways practically connect). I asked him about the undies and what Chris said. He laughed and made the comment that is now the title of this post.
