We Wear Short Shorts - A Happy Birthday Surprise

WAFFLES:  Ok Boss, is this where the H goes?

KATIE:  Hurry it up, Waffles. Gloman's coming down the steps any minute. We've got work to do.

WAFFLES:  He's going to be SUPER surprised, isn't he! I bet he doesn't even know I can spell Happy Birthday. 

KATIE:  You can't, Waffles. The sign came already spelled.

WAFFLES:  So how many pairs of shorts did we get him for his birthday?


KATIE:  Enough that we're going to string them all up on this clothesline. Now where's the end?


WAFFLES:  I got it! I got it!

KATIE:  Waffles, it's not a toy. It's a clothesline. Now hand it over.


WAFFLES:  I got it! I got it!

KATIE:  Waffles?!


WAFFLES:  Uh, Boss? I thought you said it wasn't a toy.


WAFFLES:  Boss?


* 60 minutes and an untold number of shorts later*  ...can you find Waffles?


He Wears Short Shorts ♩♫
Before this ear worm is firmly embedded in your heads, we want to thank you SO much for all the warm and wonderful birthday wishes you left last week for our resident Cat Daddy. Gloman was incredibly touched, as were we.

So you're probably wondering what's up with all these shorts and what looks like laundry day at the Townhouse, right? Well Gloman REALLY needed some new shorts. And you see, he has this thing about shopping. He hates it. So instead of bringing Gloman to the store, we brought the store to Gloman. 

Glogirly went a little crazy and bought a BUNCH of shorts for him to try on. Lots of styles, colors and sizes. This way he could try everything on in the comfort of home in front of the windows for the neighbors to see. Once he chooses his favorites, Glogirly will just return the rest. 

Though we're getting kind of used to having a 100 foot clothesline strung though the house.

We set all of this up early in the morning on his birthday, before he got out of bed. When he came downstairs from the bedroom... SURPRISE!  

So how many pairs of shorts do YOU think he had to try on?

  3. Whoa! That's a lot of shorts! I was only able to guestimate about 20 from the photo... unless there was another line of them elsewhere. I bet this birthday gift really made Gloman smile!

  9. What cute and funny surprise ! Mum sometimes wishes she could be as creative as Glogirly... We think it's almost 25 pairs of shorts for Gloman (good luck trying !). You did a great job helping Glogirly ! Purrs

  10. I think there's 20 pairs. That's a good idea, because even though they are all the same size, they all will fit a little differently. It's a good thing you had help. ;)

  11. Wow, what a great idea. Shopping from home, no dressing room wait/needed. Pretty cool. We think there are about 23 pairs of shorts. Good work getting them hung up Katie and Waffles. PUrrs

  12. Happy Birthday to G Man. And we are guessing.... 20.

  13. Our guess is that Gloman had to try on elebunty billion pair of shorts. Is that right?
    This is so much fun...all of us totally would have played with the clothes line, too!!! We didn't chime in to wish him a happy birthday in time so we'll say it now! Happy Birthday Gloman, and that comes in harmony from the girls at Squeedunk. Enjoy your new shorts! (And P.S., Z-Girl says *don't* use the Nair product that the "short-shorts" jingle advertises...)

  14. The woman rolled her eyes and said no way. She has a hard enough time shopping for herself!

  15. That is very creative and fun. I bet Gloman loved the clothesline of many shorts. Did he choose some good ones?

    ReplyDelete
  16. If Gloman is anything like our dad-guy who is the same way with blue jeans, we'd say he had to try on all of them! :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. What a great idea! And what great helpers you had! Hmmm... If Gloman were like my husband, he would've tried on two pairs, three tops.

    ReplyDelete
  18. now that must have made him laugh. What a clever idea!

    ReplyDelete
  19. We had to chuckle at this one! The most important thing: How many did he keep?

  20. This is so creative. He'll be talking about this until the next decade...

  23. Uhmmmm...I say 23 shorts...maybe...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Talk about a thoughtful gift for Gloman! And you kitties got up early and did all of that before breakfast to surprise him? That really is love!

    ReplyDelete
  25. We bet there are between 20 and 25 pairs of shorts on the clothes line. Gloman tried on maybe 6-8 pairs. I wish I would have thought of this for our Daddy's bday last year. It would have so much easier for Mommy to do what Glogirly did then to try to figure out what he wanted. Happy belated birthday Gloman.

  26. I guess 24 pairs of shorts. That must have made Gloman laugh when he saw them.

  28. Isn't it great to try on clothes from the comfort of your home? This post is too funny!!!

  29. If he's like our Dad he looked and picked out about 3 to try on. Dad does NOT like to shop....even at home.

  30. Wow, Glogirly went a little crazy. My dad kind of shops for mom the same way. He'll buy 2 or 3 of something. Say a shoe that he's unsure of, size or color-wise and bring them home and return the ones that are not right.

  31. Happy Birthday to Gloman. We see dat Flynn guessed da right answer already. Ya'll be lookin' cute and was such good helpers.

    Luv ya'

  32. I hope he tried them all on and probably kept 3-4. Mum used to do that for Grampie. Mainly he couldn't get around that well in the store, and trying stuff on would take furrever and mum didn't want to be in the men's dressing room. Easier to do it at his apartment.

    Mum doesn't like shopping either. She can get in and out of a store purrty fast.

  33. I was gonna say 60 but I see Flynn guessed it! That was a hilarious idea! catchatwithcarenandcody

  34. What a special birthday surprise! We bet Waffles and Katie were a big help.

  35. Hmmmm, at first I was gonna say 20 but then I saw the ones hanging on the other side of the room. I'll say 24 and I see Waffles all calm and severe on the couch.
