Mickey McGergle’s New Pants
Matilda often boasted to her boyfriend, Mickey McGergle, that she could crochet anything into existence. One day Mickey took Matilda up on her outrageous claims.
“Very well then,” Mickey said. “Let’s see you crochet me a pair of golf pants made entirely out of magnets.”
“Magnetic golf pants? You’re crazy Mickey McGergle,” Matilda giggled and since she was ever desirous of taking their relationship to the next level, she agreed to crocheting Mickey McGergle some magnetic palazzo pants.
Now Mickey McGergle was crazy but that was beside the point. Suffice it to say, that in this case, Mickey McGergle was simply trying to find a way to keep Matilda, a crocheting fool, from crocheting him any more golf sweaters!
Matilda got right to work crocheting a dandy pair of magnetic golfing palazzo pants that fit Mickey McGergle to a tee in the end – which was not only a nice play on words but a huge coincidence considering Matilda was horrible at measuring.
Mickey’s magnetic pants turned out so spiffy that Mickey McGergle refused to take them off.
“Matilda, everywhere I go,” said Mickey McGergle, “ while wearing my nifty magnetic palazzo pants –paper clips, thumbtacks and staples not to mention nuts, bolts and screws trail behind. I like it!. It’s lends me an air of distinction, do you not agree? “
Even so, when Mickey McGergle’s magnetic palazzo pants failed to take Mickey and Matilda’s relationship to the next level, Matilda got an idea! She would crochet herself a fetching outfit made from scrap metal.
The day Matilda donned her cleverly crocheted, scrap metal outfit was the happiest day of her life.
For you see, anytime Matilda got within five feet of Mickey McGergle, or vice versa — they were magnetically pulled into each other’s arms – which took their relationship to the next level post haste– as you can well imagine!
Until next time . . . I love you
