The Sewing Story

Garth recently lost a button from a pair of his work pants. He politely asked if I could sew it back on. I informed him I did not know how to sew. Surprise filled his face and he uttered, "What?! But you're the wife! You are supposed to know how to do this!" I apologized and offered to take his pants to my mom's because she could sew. Well, Garth was not happy with this response so he went to Meijer and bought a beginner sewing kit.

I kid you not, I came home to Garth sitting at the kitchen table concentrating hard on sewing his button on. I started to laugh and Garth just replied, "This is really easy. Let me teach you."

Yesterday I came home from work and told Garth I had ripped my sweater. He looked at the rip with a very serious look on his face and uttered "I think I could fix this for you." I burst into a laughing fit. Once Garth realized that he sounded like an 80 year old women he burst out laughing too.

I never learned how to sew either and it horrifies my husband. Every time he tries to teach me I just say that it's obvious he was supposed to have that little chore in our marriage.
