My family is a little weird

Daughter's friend is having her Quinceañera.  A serious formal event. Husband took daughter to Manhattan to get a dress and heels. (I stayed home-- I hate that kind of shopping.)

They came home and showed me what they got. Daughters first Little Black Dress. It is probably too frothy to wear except to parties, but daughter is not getting any taller now, this dress should last years.

Husband bought for himself a pair of aquamarine jocky shorts. I looked a little askance at them, daughter piped up "They were on sale mom, and besides, they will bring out his eyes."

Not sure what situation she imagines her dad in, roaming the world in underpants that mach his eyes...
