Notes to Self: No. 6,229

The next time I spill pasta sauce on an expensive pair of white jeans, be sure to remove the wallet before soaking them overnight in hot water.

    oopsie 😳

    A bigger question is why somebody who wears head-to-toe white would even risk attempting pasta with anything but alfredo sauce… it’s kinda like deliberately throwing buttered toast at the floor to defy Murphy. I bet drinking coffee in a moving vehicle is already ruled out.

    What you should really do is draw polka-dots on your white outfit, then buy that polka-dot car from Saturday’s post. “Here comes Captain Wonderbread and his Loafmobile!” 💡

    White jeans? After Labour Day?? :wtf:

  • Spud

    Dave has to wear white for one year, then it’s polka dots.

    :geek:

  • Anna

    Why not, it’s velcro and there’s no money in it, so nothing was ruined.

  • Spud

    Heh! 😛

  • Nikki

    I hope it’s never polka dots. :puke:

    Oh Gawd, please no. I am literally counting the days till I can wear colors again. May 13th is the day. :dead:

  • Amanda B.

    Could be worse,,,could’ve washed them w/something red & dyed them pink! 😳

    Dave – One word…APRON

    The wallet would seem to be an issue.

    Towel dry all the contents, then the wallet. Allow to air dry. If the wallet is leather, treat with a nice leather preserving product — Wolverine makes a lovely Oil Tanned Leather Conditioner cream, I picked up at TSC a couple years ago for $3.19.

    Assure all the plastic pockets get a chance to air completely before refilling.

    Pictures, now, will likely need replaced, but be sure to wait until they dry, just to be sure. You might need to press some items with paper towels and plastic-protected books, careful for the stuff that might bond to the paper towels.

    Credit cards may or may not survive, depending on how hot the water was. Use each to check balance as soon as possible, to find out which survived and which need reprogrammed/replaced due to visible or concealed deformation. Remember that computer interfaces read the cards, usually not people.

    Whatever happens, remember that no one seeing you walk down the hall or street will be able to sense that your wallet got poached. Really.

    If the stain didn’t come out, set the jeans back until Color Day, and use them in a denim-blue tie-dye crafty type celebration.

    Since you are wearing all white… do your accessories have to be all white as well? Meaning, is your wallet white? Or can you continue to carry a brown/black wallet?

  • Kangaroo

    The wallet is screwed, my question? Did the hot water shrink the jeans, and set the stain nicely?

  • sledge

    Ever hear of a Tide stain stick? Take them to a dry cleaner. The wallet is a loss next time when playing with sauce do not wear white.

  • Mitch

    Dave,

    After a year of keeping an All White Wardrobe, I think you should get into the Laundry business. By the time you are finished, You will be the Renegade Master of Crisp Whites .

    It’s all going to be moot once “Salt Season” begins. I can see the Wave pattern on your Hems now….

  • StevieC

    And please, no photos of the tighty whiteys. :thong:

  • Lung the Younger

    Ah, so THIS is what economists are referring to when they talk about a floating currency.

  • pablo

    So, this white wearing thing? You get to wear red once you become a Grand Dragon right?

  • Putzfactor

    White jeans?! What a tool!

    No, wallet can be black since it is not clothing. As my elder told me, “You think Africans had wallets 5,000 years ago?”
    [Comment ID #80695 will be quoted here]
    I practically have stock in them. I prefer the Clorox bleach pens, myself but I have them everywhere.
    [Comment ID #80701 will be quoted here]
    Indeed!
    [Comment ID #80702 will be quoted here]
    Yeah, I remember my first beer, too.
    [Comment ID #80703 will be quoted here]
    Yes, they are an excellent tool. BTW, your mother says hi.

  • donna

    see white ,does not pay off . it is red that will .

  • cbatdux

    So Dave. Um. What will you wear after May 13?

    Will there be a celebration at the ordination?

    What is an appropriate gift to send?

    And finally – what did you wear for Halloween? No, let me guess….

  • Davezilla

    [Comment ID #80709 will be quoted here]

    1. Anything I want.
    2. Yes, big party.
    3. Nude photos.
    4. I went as Mr. Clean.

  • Myra

    Mr. Clean? Did you shave your head? 😆

  • adognamedgromit

    Then Herb tarlic writes
    Here Have a nice white belt for you.

    I loved WKRP

  • Penguin Pete

    “#4. I went as Mr. Clean”

    Ah, for shame. Me, wearing all white, I would have put on a long red tie and gone as a maxi pad…

  • Putzfactor

    “Yes, they are an excellent tool. BTW, your mother says hi.”

    White jeans! They probably look great with your turtle neck sweaters, eh?

    By the way, Natalie is a little tired right now, but she says hi.

  • Mitch

    Methinks we have us our own little Troll around here….

  • Lisa

    Dave will be the Stainmaster Ninja who will never again wear anything white…thereby allowing all of his skills to fall away. *sigh*

    Don’t throw away your talent, Dave. 😆

    Uh, that was sort of done for me by the other priests. Yes, I was bald. Like David Carradine in Kung Fu. :wtf:
