I’m so proud of Mister Man for making it to his white belt in tae kwon do – especially after the initial issues we had in class. He’s pretty proud, too. After his first official class, he was presented with his uniform. He tried it on, and despite the suggestions from both me and the owner of the dojo that he take off his uniform after trying it on, he chose to wear it home.
When I took a look at it that night, it looked like this:
Why yes, he is actually that talented. No worries, though. That’s what Oxyclean and Tide Stain Release are for, right? No, apparently this is some super fabric that absorbs stains like a sponge then refuses to let them go. Uh-oh.
I washed the uniform again on Monday – five classes into him wearing it – and again, not all the stains came out.
And this one? I don’t even know what he was around that is that shade of yellow. And this is on the back, too. How does he do it?!
And in case you’re wondering, this is one of the main reasons we wear white as little as possible. I have another Mass uniform shirt that I’ve given up on getting clean that’s going into the trash today, too.
Calgon, take me away!
