L is for …

…Lycra! Bet you’re wondering where this is leading now aren’t you??

Picture the scene. We’re just home from our wonderful holiday. Son 2 is at home to greet us. All appears normal. Until he says ‘Stay in your bedroom with the door closed until I call you’. Mmmm – he’s always been a bit unpredictable but what on earth was he up to now?

So he called from downstairs. Off I went opened the front room door to be greeted by a vision in …PURPLE LYCRA – head to toe, including covering his face. He posed like one of those living statues and didn’t say a word. Now this is where I should show you a photo but I have to be honest I laughed so much I didn’t have the sense to grab the camera! Apparently this is a ‘Morph Suit’ they seem to be quite the thing by this website here. I tell you, you had to be there to appreciate it, I’m still smiling now!

Apparently he’s off for a weekend at a Frisbee competition  - I’m not sure if this is the kit he’ll be wearing! Ahh boys will be boys, however old they are!

This is the closest I can get – just imagine it in purple!!

MORPH-2T

I did ask him if he would pose for me tonight when he came in from work, his response ‘That’ll be a no’ at least I tried!

Pop across to Jenny's blog to see the rest of this weeks contributions.

Oh – for those of you who left comments last week, Katie has been truly touched by the interest she has generated (and probably a touch embarrassed!)

  6. How hysterical. I went to the morphsuit site to figure out why in the world you would have one, and I still don't get it! Must be my age!

  11. geez louise. That image is now seared into my eyeballs! I'm begging you PLEEZE don't show that to my 16-yr-old son. He would be online ordering one before two shakes of a lamb's tail. sooooo funny! I hopped over from Alphabe-Thursday and am so happy that I did! I am the new kid in class, and learning my way around. Please accept my invitation to drop in at my place one day this week when you get a moment. I have become a follower and hope you'll do the same. until later...

  12. LOL. I don't know what I would have done. Certainly would not have remembered the camera. I probably would have screamed because I would have been so surprised.

  13. Ha!

    Laughing like crazy here!

    What a wonderful post!

    I can just picture this.

    You must have been speechless!

    Thanks for the happy break on this Alphabe-Thursday journey through the letter "L"!

    A+

    And a gold star for your son!

  14. I wonder how close you all are to NC? I would love to have him come into my kindergarten class. Can you imagine the children's reactions????

    This is my first participation in Alphabet Thursday. What fun!

  15. I went to see the blue man group in Chicago a couple of years ago and they looked just like that, except they have make up on their heads instead of a mask. Of course being the demure girl that I am, haha, I ended up on stage with them. What fun, i think I want one in sparkle! I think my hubby would be so shocked it would be worth the horrible embarrasment.

  19. okay..it is funny...but it didn't seem so funny when i was actually wearing lycra head to toe in the 80's! :)

  20. It reminds me of the Blue Man Group - very odd! I wonder what a Morph suit would look like on a short, slightly plump and middle-aged woman!

  21. I love the unpredictable. What fun!

  22. How funny. Lycra certainly has its vast array of uses. You will not be finding it on this body, however. Sounds like you had some rough seas on your trip, but the photos are great!
