Let's get something clear right at the start of this post. MrM is a blue and white shirt kind of person. Sometimes a little bit bluer than white and other times a racy white with blue stripes. For country days MrM might wear a subtle green and brown check but MrM does not wear shirts with graphic design.
I know that it is wrong to try and change your partner, you should accept them as they are and learn to love those little character flaws but how can I come to terms with the fact that I am married to a man who will never wear a shirt with ladybirds on?
MrM will remind me that he has multiple shirts with graphic designs, unusual colour combinations and slogans but I am afraid that London Irish rugby shirts cannot be included in the same category as fabulous French tailoring.
I honestly believe that if I can persuade him to let go of his prejudice he will agree to a gradual programme designed to overcome his fear. We could start with a simple shirt with black triangles for 5 minutes at a time and then build up to a subtle heart pattern. After a few months I am sure that blue swirls or pink circles would be tolerated.
I am not sure how long it would be before he could cope with girls on scooters but I think it would be worth the effort. Don't you?
