Papa loves to go to used thrift shops. One of his favorites is Value Village but only on Wednesdays because it's Senior Day so everything for the oldsters is 40% off.
Today mom and I had to go to Target to return some clothes I had picked up for the kids (but I forgot to actually BRING the bag of clothes which means I need to do another Target run in the near future) and afterwards she called papa to meet us for lunch. We met at Applebees and papa informed us of his treasures he found at Salvation Army and Goodwill.
One thing he was so excited about was a life jacket he found for himself.
Doesn't he look happy to be wearing it?
Now this being us and papa being papa he didn't buy the life jacket for actual water usage, oh no. He had a completely other use for it. Why was he so tickled about a life jacket that won't be used in water? Because he bought it to wear as protective gear while the kids put on their boxing gloves and take turns punching him.
Pretty genius if I say so myself.
Now I know they make stuff actually for this sport but hey, why buy that when you can spend $4 for the same thing?
I love my papa.
