Who Wears Pink Shorts?
By Karen Lynn Vidra, The Texas Tornado
Thursday, February 02, 2012

Rated "G" by the Author.

A neighbor is incensed that a fellow neighbor wears bright pink shorts ... and the person in question is a MAN.

I don't know what to think about Mr. Robinson ...

The guy is in his fifties, yet he thinks he is much younger.  It is very embarrassing.

As an example, take this morning. There was Mr. Robinson, pretty as you please, standing in the middle of his yard, watering the flowers and grass ... and he was wearing pink shorts!!  I mean, bright, shocking, glow-in-the-dark, neon PINK!!

He also didn't have a shirt on, so he was showing off his pretty hairy belly to the world.

More than once one of us have complained to his wife about his odd behavior, but I don't think she sees a problem with it.  She acts as ditzy as he does at times, if not, even more so.  If you ask me, I think both of them have bats in their belfries!!

One is as crazy as the other ...

I guess Mr. Robinson is trying to prove to us that he can wear whatever he darn well pleases.  Maybe so, but dang, do we have to look at his gargantuan beer belly poking out of those godawful. Pink.  Shorts????

I mean, some people truly need to cover UP or at least put some decent clothes on!!

If this doesn't let up soon, I might have to put up black blinders on my windows, just so I don't have to look at my stupid next door neighbor! I mean the image of an almost senior-citizen in nothing but pink shorts (and a smile) is bound to burn an image into your retinas for a very long time to come!!

Oh, go get a life Mr. or Miss, or Mrs. or ms. next door neighbor. If the (near) middle aged guy wants to be comfortable or if he still pictures himself and a younger studly kind'a guy, big deal! Is his car parked on his front lawn? Is garbage overflowing from his to your driveway? Are the police called to his house for drugs or boozy parties or noisy misbehaver? Big deal! So he wears pink shorts with his belly showing... Go get a life and leave the guy be!

Cute story, Karen
