Ok, so family time was pretty painless, and mom even arrived bearing gifts. For my brother, a couple of shirts. For me, these shorts. Feel free to click on the photo to enlarge it, so you can better appreciate the peacock print and the white rick rack (who knew they still make it?) on the pockets.

Will they work as "campy" golf shorts? Would they work if I was 65 and living in Palm Beach?

Any suggestions?

Oh, my gosh! Actually I like the colors, and peacocks. But they do look a tad grandma in the gardenish.

Wow. Yes, I think they might actually work if you were in your 60s and living in Florida.

They could be fun to wear around the house!! Or to a pool party.

Oh, they're darling (too bad I can't include an accent here.

There's a reason why when my mother wanted to buy clothes for me, I'd tell her underwear. You can't go too far wrong--give her the size and specify all natural materials except for in the bands--for years I always had a drawer full and a few extra three packs in the closet.

Congratulation on winning Maggie's pecans

I would definitely wear them around the house. Or you could tell her that don't fit right and ask for the receipt to go get something else?

OMG! The rick rack is hilarious, and I also noticed from the tag that they stretch! I say cut them up and make coasters or use the fabric to line a felted bag.

I'd wear them with a bikini top and giant Pam Anderson implants. That way, no one will be looking at the shorts.

Now be a good daughter and wear them the next time your mom comes to visit. Then donate them.

Dan - Take it from me, a daughter whose mother is completely oblivious to my coloring and body shape (not to mention TASTE), and whose mother is still trying to dress me as if I'm the tall, thin, shapeless, pale daughter that she obviously fantasizes she had (I'm short, dark, zaftig, and curvaceous). You need to understand that if you actually wear those kinds of gifts in front of the gift-giver, it only encourages them to give you more like-gifts. Diane can NEVER wear these shorts in front of her mother unless she wants an entire wardrobe like that.

LA (and Diane) - My suggestion wasn't serious. I haven't figured out a way to inflict sarcasm into written comments yet.

Awww...sorry, dan! I didn't mean to lecture, but you sounded so darned earnest.

Thanks, all. But how many people wanted to suggest "burn them"?

Can Norm try them on?!

norm - they are all your's. As la pointed out, they stretch, so can fit a nice variety of shapes and sizes

Ooohh... what to do... what to do... OH! Ok. You could make a little tea-cozy for the cat-shaped tea pot which was also a gift from your momma. And which also still makes me smile.

If you wash them in really hot water... I wonder if they will run into a cool pattern.
