if she does buy you one of the red shorts be sure to get one of these too: be a man i think the with the red one would make a hell of a outfit.

I always wondered why they only realy came in black. I thought other colors would be more visable. I was right. Terribly right.

I actually have a pair of red shorts, although I'll admit that I don't have that particular problem.
