Get Your Barn Pink On!!!!
It was just suppose to be a routine stop at TSC. Pick up the General Loose Minerals for the animals, get this week's Farm & Diary Newspaper, & the new issue of Hobby Farm magazine. But when I walked in, I saw them. Hanging there on the rack with all the other new winter work clothes. My heart raced as I walked quickly to the rack. They were pink, soft, durable, & so cute BUT crap, the coveralls were in the youth size. The womens coveralls were that typical, boring beige color....yuck. I picked up the beige ones, held them up to my 4'10 body.....even in the short size I could reroll them back up to my thighes. The discrimination I face in the clothing world!!! So, I turned back to those PINK ones, the ones that kept calling my name. I searched for the XL thinking maybe, just maybe, with a small prayer they would fit. I found the size, held them up.....there was potential. The only obstacle would be the butt, darn the butt!! I walked over to the fitting room, my heart racing. I shut the door, kicked off the shoes and tried the coveralls on.......................
They fit!!!! Are you flippin' kidding me!!??? There was plenty of room all over, even in the butt!!! It was my lucky day!!! The length was perfect, no rolling to be done......and they are PINK!! No boring beige.....won't the animals be excited for me!!!!!! Of course, I bought them, a mere $44.99 but pure excitement.......priceless!!! And who in the heck less is going to wear pink coveralls? Oh, I did get the other things I originally went to get at TSC........but I am thinking I should go back and get the matching coat:)
Now which pair of boots should I wear with my new pink coveralls????? So many issues for a single hobby farm woman!
I am wondering which one of these handsome boys
is going to tell me how awesome my new pink coveralls are...............????
I am thinking Johnny is saying," she better not even think of buying me a pink halter!"
