Prior to working Home Depot orange was not on Marv’s wardrobe color palette and he even used to rib a former supervisor of his for always wearing orange socks. However, ever since donning the bright orange apron for Home Depot, he seems to have developed a love for it as I see him wearing orange hats an t-shirts all the time and heck, it it makes him happy, more power to him.
However, we went Goodwill’in yesterday as half price day yesterday and in search of a shirt for him to wear to an upcoming wedding. Marv was looking in the corner and I was looking on a rack up front when he said. “Hey, how about this one!” Although it might look a bit red in the photo, it was a blinding bright orange. The only utterance I could get out was “No…just…No”. I didn’t stick around to see if the shirt made it into the cart or not.
