Last Sunday I blogged about evening #2 with the new soccer parents of my 12-year-olds team. We did the responsible thing and not only left the children at the hotel but headed to the casino to lose probably a combined total of $2,000. Super responsible.
So last Friday night, my husband and I sat in the lobby alone.
“Well this is fun.” I said sarcastically, blaming everything on my husband. Then one by one, parents began to trickle in. I didn’t know anyone’s name and after about 5 glasses of wine, I really didn’t care. At one point, one of the dads had brought down this nylon, red cooler with beer, water and ice blocks in it.
“Is that your European man sack?” I asked, completely serious. He chuckled and just nodded.
Eventually, a few of the parents went up but I was in it to win it. European man sack went up and never came back down. His mistake was leaving his sack.
“C, grab the camera!” I commanded my husband. And without further ado, I give you Hot Mess modeling the European man sack.
Show Me Surprised…….Show Me Serious…….Make Love To The Camera……My Glamour Shot…..
You don’t know the power of the sack, till you try the sack…….
I honestly have no title for this pose. I tried to think of something and every time I came up with something, I didn’t like it. Here is what I was thinking:
Sporty…..economical….that’s Eddie Bauer (that’s the brand of the bag and an ode to Sprockets from SNL)
I’ve been a naughty girl……
Will my wine box fit in here for tomorrow morning’s game.
So that was the first night. Stay tuned ladies and gents because next weekend we are traveling out-of-state to Michigan with this same group. All of course will be documented for your reading and laughing pleasure!
You just crack me up!!!! European Man Sack… knowing you from previous posts I was waiting for a post about European T*sticles!
We can make that happen Ritu! Don’t give me ideas! Lol!!
Bahahhahaha Ritu’s comment! You are hysterical. Here’s the real question: Did you keep the bag? It sounds like it would really come in handy, and I mean, obviously, you look great wearing it!
Thanks Becca! No, we were extremely careful with his sack and returned it the next day! Now if he brings it next weekend…..
Sounds like a good start!!
It was to a fun weekend!!
Haha you guys look like you had a fun time taking some model shots with the sack!
God it was hilarious! Just think if he brings a different European man sack next week? Wr could do a TON of glamour shots. You know?!?!
I can feel the power of the Man Sack. You were extremely lucky to be able to touch such a mighty thing!
I was lucky wasn’t I? May God always have mercy on the almighty European man sack!!
Wait, do American men not carry bags?
Or do they have man-purses, Murses?
American men do not wear murses or bags! Thats what makes this so amazing!
Lol what do they do? Do they all just have massive pockets?
Wait a minute….are you saying most men actually do carry man bags in Europe? Men just put their wallets in their jeans and their cell either in their other pocket, coat pocket or hold it. Now some men will bring a back pack to work but the majority do not.
I think it might depend on the industry they work in… But I don’t think it looks weird when a bloke has a bag.
My husband always has one with him, so do most of his coworkers in London. I’ll ask him if it’s different in Canada.
Oooh he says way less men have man-bags in Canada too.
