From Bikini Wax to Kate Spade

About 13 years ago, Larry and I started walking every night in our neighborhood. We mapped out a two-mile route that took us about 35 to 45 minutes to complete. Shortly after we started, our friend Glenda joined us, and we gradually added more friends until our group numbered 10 at one point.

When it was just the three of us, we often had some unusual conversations. Glenda and I said that we were educating Larry in the ways of women. One of the earliest of those talks was about bikini waxing. Larry had never heard of such and wondered why any woman would put herself through such torture.

Our group is now back to just the three of us, since our other friends have gradually dropped out. Last night we were talking about Ben's and Claire's bridal registry. Glenda asked me about their china and stemware patterns, and I told her that they had registered for a Kate Spade crystal pattern.

Larry said, "Kate Spade? I thought she did purses."

Glenda and I were impressed that he had learned enough to know that Kate Spade designed purses. We think his education has come a long way since our bikini wax conversation and that he's ready to lead the men's team in a game of Battle of the Sexes.

By the way, we also noted that we are out of the bikini business, but that doesn't mean we aren't still hot.

I didn't want to know you were ever in the bikini wax business. I think I just threw up in my mouth.

I'm very impressed with LBeau's knowledge of Kate Spade! I didn't know he had it in him!

Okay, I am laughing so hard at the thought of the words bikini wax coming out of LBeau's mouth. Oh to hear him say it!
