An Awkward Autumn Moment

Jim Jenkins kisses his wife on the cheek as he heads out the door. “Going to buy a blazer, sweetie. Be back in a bit.”

“Remember, Jimmy, I can’t resist you in black,” Millie calls after him.

Several hours pass when Millie hears a loud rumbling in the drive. She turns to look out the curtains. There’s Jim, beaming as he inspects his new Chevy Trailblazer. Millie jumps up and slings open the door. “James, what on earth is this?”

“A new blazer for hunting season,” he replies. “And it’s black – as you requested…” he said with a wink.

With that, Millie turns on her heel and walks back in the house, slamming the door behind her.

Geez, Jim thinks. I didn’t even get to show her my new Hardwick Bristol Camel Hair Sport Coat.
