For some reason ROM could tell he needed larger waist pants, but was oblivious when it came to his shirt size. I had tried in recent years to give him a subtle nudge to buy larger tee shirts, but was met with resistance and denial. While looking at clothes, I'd pull out a larger size and suggest he try it on and he'd put it back on the rack, pull out a smaller size and act amazed that after all the years we'd been married that I still didn't know his size. I let this shit slide and went along with his delusion, convinced that eventually he'd give it up and face reality. It didn't happen-
This spring when it was time to buy new summer clothes, I decided it was time I did an intervention. Lord knows I'd want him to do it for me if I was still trying to squeeze into tube tops and midriff tees. Sooo... a few weeks ago when he was looking at tees in his favorite catalog I gently suggested he order size large. Did he take the hint and quietly order the larger size? Oh hell no, he launched right into his usual insistence that he wore mediums.
I'm happy to say the intervention worked and my ROM looks quite handsome in his new tee shirts.
