Been looking for some new shorts over the course of the summer, and at Cabela’s yesterday I found some on sale that looked pretty nice–nice big pockets all over, good fabric, and they actually go down to my knees, which is usually impossible to find as I have a 37 inch inseam. I generally go around looking like a goofy british safari tourist with those ridiculously short shorts (who likes short shorts? Not me…). So there were the pluses. The downside? They’re camo. Actually, they’re stupid camo–three shades of barely distinguishable green that wouldn’t work as camouflage even if you were trying to hide in the jungle. I mean, they hardly work as a fashion statement. And why the heck would you want camo shorts? You’ve got the Irish-white legs sticking out below and a Hawaiian shirt on top–you are not hiding anything.
I bought them, and I think I like them, but I can’t help but feel kinda stupid. “Huh huh, look at that guy with the stupid camo shorts. WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO HIDE FROM, POSER?”
*hangs head in shame*
