From shopping for jeans with her friends
She told me how much they were: hmm a little more than she had spent in the past
Then she unfurl her little find for me to see
What I saw were a pair of faded, worn out jeans with shreds and holes in both knees!!!
WHY IN THE BIG, WIDE WORLD WOULD YOU PAY MORE FOR LESS JEANS??
You call having threads and shreds in the knees cool and hip???
What ya gonna do in winter when in the air there's wind a howling and a nip
I could have taken one of your old faded jeans
And your Mama could have done wonders in the cool and hip department
With a knife and a pair of blunt scissors
She looked at me with a side glance with an all knowing smile
But obviously did not share the same sentiment
Then she did it again, bought another one of those silly jeans
After the offer I had given to save her hard earned cash
One evening she had loaded her jeans into the washing machine
When she went to retrieve them, I heard a yelp and a scream
She ran upstairs to me...perplexed, half-laughing and yet horrified
There were bits and pieces of her jeans in her hand
WELL, I said, what DO you expect
When you buy jeans that are already well worn with holes to begin
Of course, they're gonna disintegrate in just a few spins....
She walked away bewildered and with a knitted brow
While I tried to stifle an ever exploding boiling laff
I had cut up an old pair of jeans
And replaced her laundering pair in the machine.....
YES, you may borrow my brilliant prank for 2014's April's Fool Day
It doesn't have to be in the vein of teaching a kid some sensibility...
Only remember me and gimme the credit on April second.....
