Hot under the collar
I married a white collar worker.
You know smooth hands, pale skin , sitting- in- a- chair- all- day- physique, nerd.
Then one day he comes home with a hard hat and steel toe boots.
I laugh at them being left at the foot of the bed.
It's like a change - Who stole my nerd?
I was having this conversation at the school pick up line. I chat with a stay at home dad of four who is a retired builder. He said "hey whats wrong with blue collar!! (taking offense teasing me)
I said 'nothing' of course. I'm not making fun.
Blue collar worker coming home to me Boots, vest and hard hat at the end of long days.
Change can be fun. *wink*
(he's still doing the same job, but now is often fitting out new still being built office buildings)
