The Parent Blogger Network and Bill Me Later is sponsoring a blog blast about what objects men just can't part with. Often these treasures are kept in "man caves". Dave has one that he calls Dave's World. It used to have a pool table and a bar but when the kids came into our lives that was no longer a good use of space. He still has he room but now it is a TV room and office. One object Dave can't part with is the ugly faded now orange couch in Dave's World. It is really comfortable and a great couch for sleeping. I often find him napping in here.
Dave was a high school English teacher before taking his much better paid director of sales position. He keeps the English teacher paraphernalia that he can't bear to pack in his room. The Shakespeare bust and Mel Gibson's Hamlet poster reside there.
Another ugly thing that is kept in Dave's World is the Patriots wreathe his parents gave him last year for Christmas. Dave also had a huge cut out of Tom Brady in his classroom. Sometimes I'm really glad there is a room to put stuff like that. I only want Tom Brady in my living room if it is really him and not a cut out.
Faded T-shirts are another object Dave can not part with. He still has T shirts from high school, which he graduated from 16 years ago. There is one is particular that is so faded you can't read the writing on it. It is also so full of holes it can barely be considered clothing. (I couldn't locate that shirt so maybe it "disappeared" last time I cleaned his closet but most likely it is hidden for safe keeping.) Here is an example of a well loved T shirt from spring break 1996.
