This morning Cheryl admonished me for not pulling Adam’s pants up in front. She thought it was inappropriate for Adam to show diaper above the waistline. Part of our problem lies in diaper design. Our diaper brand of choice has many desirable characteristics, save one: a freakish amount of material above the fastening point. However, it goes beyond that… it involves something much more basic.
In reply to Cheryl’s challenge of my dress mechanics, I gave her my patented “flummoxed look of innocence.” Surely she’s been around enough guys to know Levi’s First Rule of Fit: “a waistband below the gut tends to remain below the gut unless acted upon by a substantial and persistent force.” The corollary of Levi’s First Rule of Fit states: “a waistband above the gut tends to migrate below the gut unless acted upon by a substantial and persistent force.”
Applying this rule to the current situation; it would seem that Adam’s pants are going to stay right where they are unless he scores a pair of suspenders on our next shopping spree.
See there? Once again logic strikes a blow for husband kind!
