Nothing screams "I'm a regular guy with a college degree and good job!" like a pair of khaki Dockers. But like the men in their Super Bowl ad, my husband has been running around in his skivvies these days.
The man needs a job! (Full-time as a technical writer with benefits, please. He's smart, talented and an asset to any organization, really.)
So when the good people at Dockers offered me a chance to give away five pairs Dockers, I asked if I could snag one for him. Frankly, I'm tired of having to be the one to run to the door when FedEx stops by on a cold windy winter's day.
Normally, DH is the one to do stuff like that. He's always willing to lend a hand and take on the messy tasks so as to spare his delicate wife trauma. It's been a while since we've gone out to dinner due to the unemployment thing, but assuming we were to go on a date night and it was raining, he'd no doubt drop me right at the door and slog the the cold wet parking lot to meet me. And then head back into the wet mess after dinner to get the car to pick me, his dainty flower of a wife, up.
The folks at Docker's want to know that DH isn't the only nice guy left on the planet. Is he? Chivalry is not dead! Is it?
Tell me a story about an act of Valentine's Day Chivalry in the comment section below for a chance to win one of four pairs of Soft Khakis in "Carmel" the (the 2010 version of khaki) or (hold on to your seats) "Red"(which I've been assured is quite popular).
And, by the way, I'm not a stickler or much of a VDay participant, so if the act of chivalry occurred a while ago, but you are thinking about it on Valentine's Day, that's cool with me, even if it means I'll never work with Dockers again. That's how much I love you guys.

Fine print: The only payment I'm receiving for the contest if the joy of sharing and the free pair of pants for my husband (thank goodness!). Also, the PR guy made me laugh when I got his note, so that counts for something. The prize will only be shipped to a US mailing address. This contest is not open to members of my immediate family because most of us work in pajamas, anyway. The winner will have 24 hours to contact me with a mailing address and the size and color of pants requested. Value of each pair is $52.
