Tuesday Coat Tale

In the middle of April, Dad decided it was time to by a new windbreaker (coat) and Topsider casual shoes..  
This is a big DEAL.
Dad HATES to shop for himself. 
 Mom was elated. They walk at the mall every day so after their walk they only had to wait a few minutes for the stores to open at 10 a.m.  When Dad shops, he likes one stop shopping at Belk men's store.  At 10:25 (really) a.m. they were walking out of the store with this new coat and a pair of shoes. No photo of the shoes because this is a coat tale. Dad's old coat was navy and the fabric of the coat was weird it stole my furs right out of the air.  This one is is water resistant, the fabric does not steal my furs.  
Win Win

Fast forward a few days...it was chilly, dreary and raining.   Mom was in the kitchen pouring their coffee. Dad came into the kitchen said to mom:
I think I'll wear my new coat today.
 Mom turned to look at him and said

Dad looked down to see that he did, in fact, have on Mom's coat
 which (on her) is an ankle length rain coat.  By this time mom 
was falling on the floor LOLing she laughed so hard her sides hurt and her face muscles hurt
 Dad was NOT doing any of this.

Mom's coat sleeves were too short...it was too tight in the chest  Unfortunately I missed the entire event.  But I am  told it looked so funny on Dad.  Dad is 5'11" Mom is 5' 4" on a good hair day.
Mom was asking all kinds of questions and saying all kinds of stuff like thank goodness I was home you would have worn that outside.  Didn't it feel too small....mom was laughing so hard she had tears rolling down her face and her nose started running 
OMCs  she was a WET MESS.    Mom told dad next time he did something like that to give her some notice because the look on his face was P R I C E L E SS when he realized it was her coat!!
We wanted to share this hilarious story earlier but every time mom thought about it she started to cackle.  Mom said she would never in all her years be able to UN SEE Dad in her coat.
Then it got even funnier when Dad admitted that he was wondering why it was so small feeling..Mom asked if he didn't wonder about the length?

Mom LOL'd so much it was contagious then Dad started LOLing at Mom.   To this day when they think about the sight they LOL!!
She has been trying to get him to put her coat back on so he could see how funny he looked but he WON'T.  

This is the coat closet.  The coat on the left is mom's old coat
(same color and fabric) the coat on the right is Dad's new coat.)
This photo is a slight reenactment taken on 5/23. 

Mom isn't sure if they were beside each other on the Misfit day!
Their coats could be twinS!!
As I said it was dark and dreary and evidently dad did not
turn on the foyer light when he got the coat out of the closet 
for now mom has moved her coat to another closet.  

One day we might have a do over...AND I sure hope I see it!!
Thanks Dad for making mom LOL.
I bet she looked as weird doing all that snorting of Squirrel $not,  gasping for breath and holding her tummy as you did in the coat!!


  1. Crikey Madi ..... your Dad sounds just like mine. He too shops for clothes for himself in 5 minutes. He hasn't worn one of Mum's coats by mistake yet but he does sometimes wear his clothes inside out or back to front. Mum always has to check him before he goes out. How on earth could your Dad not notice the tight fit? There's something decidedly weird about men, aye?? Not me of course!! I take great pride in what I wear out in public. I'm glad your Dad's new coat won't be stealing any of your furs. I sure would like to see photos!!

  2. OMC that's sooo funny! Our Dad would do something like that too!!!!

    your guy Raz and The Florida Furkids

  3. Looks like the perfect set up for a re-enactment! LOL!

  4. Now you have us rolling on the floor and laughing out loud! We sure wish there was a picture available☺

  5. It is so much fun to have a good laugh like that on the spur of the moment and that is funny that he was trying to wear the Mom's coat. Great story. Have a great day.

  6. OMD! We are literally rolling on the floor laughing!!! There must be something about humans named Brian/Bryan. My human dad hates shopping, too. Just recently, we went shoe shopping. He bought a pair of athletic shoes for the weekend and plain black shoes for work. When my human mom asked he needed any other shoes (because she knew it would be years before he entered another store), he was all like why would anyone need more than two pairs of shoes.

    OK, here's the kicker (your mom might want to put down her coffee) …would you believe we had a very similar coat incident last winter. My parents' coats are similar both black and puffy, but mom's is clearly more feminine. Well, one busy morning my dad took me for a walk while my mom attempted to convince my sister to eat breakfast before school (she doesn't like breakfast). When my dad came back in, my mom gave him a very funny look and asked "why are you wearing my coat????. He had walked all the way around the block so I could do my business - wearing her coat! Just like your dad, the sleeves were too short and it was too tight on him and he hadn't noticed!!!!

  7. Ida been dying laughing too! I think we need to see your Dad in your Mom's coat, you know just to really get the picture of how it all went down... or um, on!

  8. That is so like a man........just put it on and not think about why something is not feeling right. Love the story Mom and Madi.

  9. I think Dad needs to put the coat on and let mom take a photo, then mom needs to let dad take a photo of the Squirrel Snot... i am laughing out loud, i can't stop smiling and i wasn't even there. now if they go out with the coats on every one will think, look at those two people dressing like twins.... you know, like old people do

  14. Oh that is very funny! We can totally understand how that can happen cuz one time dad put on mom's running shoes and another time mom was asking dad if he saw her glasses and he said no and he in fact was wearing them! Actually this has happened a number of times. It cracks mom up too!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  26. Oh my, that's hilarious, Madi. Good thing you are there to tell us all the funny things that happen at your house!
    Happy Tuesday to our favorite tuxie girl.

  27. That is too funny. Too bad your Mom didn't get a photo.

  28. MOL MOL MOL! That is too funny! Too bad you don't have pictures! We can see why he got them confused though -- they look so much alike!

  29. OMC! Madi, that is so funny! Your dad needs to put his name on his coat. :)

  30. There is noticeably a bundle to know about this. I assume you made certain nice points in features also.


Please leave a meow or bark for Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
Life is short, spend it with those who make you laugh
