Domesticated Man

Do you remember HomeEc class from Jr. High/High School?

I do...I remember how to clean a pot, cook an egg and sew...
In Norway, I proved my love to Claire through my use of HomeEc skillz...


-----
In College, I sewed an outfit for my girlfriend. I bought fabric, pulled out the sewing machine and went to work. It was a GREAT Christmas present...
I made shorts and a scrunchy (there was left-over fabric)...
I think there was left over fabric because I, UNINTENTIONALLY, made the crotch of the shorts about as thick as an Andes Mint...
Her dad did not think that UNINTENTIONAL mistake was very funny.

You are full of romance! Any woman who has a man who can sew a button on is a lucky, lucky woman!
