@DavidArchie’s got sole: Shoe tweet deconstruction

Yes, Angelica 🙂 still a little too not over two … TWO … shoe pics posted by David… somebody pinch me! LOL

But I believe the longer Instagram message that went along with it needs a full doctoral thesis to parse the subtext… since I am currently working on my M.A. (Masters of Archieology), I will give it a go.

Here are my footnotes (get it? *snort*)

shoesfootnotes.

1. He said “took” not “I gave away” or “I decided to share” but they “took” … I’m picturing two guys in balaclavas trying on a bajillion scarves and skinny jeans.

2. “Just about all of my clothes” — not just a T-shirt here or a Ford Day jacket there, but JUST ABOUT ALL OF MY CLOTHES!!! What the heck did they think he was going to wear when he got home, more suits and ties?

3. “while I was gone” — I imagine it went something like this?

Friend: “pssst, he’s in the car, let’s MOVE!”
Brother-in-law: “But they’re still idling, he could’ve forgotten something and run back in!”
Friend: “No time, they’re running late… you take the closet, I’ll take the bureau.”
Brother-in-law: “No, I’ll take the bureau, it’s got his Mr. Rogers T-shirt.”
Friend: “Bro, he took that one with him.”
Brother-in-law: “Dang him, SO selfish!”
Friend: “I know right!”
Brother-in-law: “Dibs on the cool potato sack cowl-neck thingie.”
Friend: “Um, ya, you can have that one.”

4. “(I let them)” — added only so none of us would call the police for him.

5. “I have run out of stuff to wear” — aha, the mystery of Belt-Gate is solved!

6. “Luckily” — as if this magic suitcase appeared out of nowhere full of emergency items for Mr. Wardrobe-challenged.

7. “There was a suitcase of things from the Philippines” — once again, Philippines and Josh Bradley to the rescue!

8. “Like these Bench shoes” — that will work really well come winter.

9 & 10 “Thanks @kariontour for keeping the suitcase safe!  — why do I picture Kari holding a fiery torch in one hand and a machete in the other, arms outstretched defending the little suitcase against a pack of wolves.

Or a bomb going off and Kari flinging her body over the suitcase so not one cute polo shirt got singed!

Or a tornado whirling through Apopka and Kari flinging the suitcase down the root cellar, jumping in with it and slamming the trap door shut just in time!

Or maybe just dusting it now and then.

11. “thanks #Bench” — well played, Archuleta, well played. (and look at you there using hashtags like you invented them)

12. “guess I’ll have to stop being stubborn” — what, you, David, stubborn? Had no idea.

13. “Buy more clothes eventually though” — steer clear of men’s capris.

14. I’m glad I’m not the only one who takes pictures of my shoes!

What do you guys think? Reading too much into this? 🙂

p.s.

So now we have a barely-there-hair morning person who likes watching sports, being a sassypants and live tweeting? WHAT DID YOU DO WITH OUR D’ARCH??!!!

    TOfan, when you mentioned “Men’s Capris”, it reminded me of the first image I had when I read David’s friend and brother-in-law had taken the clothes. I’ve not studied the height of his b-i-law or whatever friend, but I pictured two fellows in short David jeans looking as though they were in capris!

      This is not a unique situation. Oldest got home from his mission to discover many of his things gone. And he has sisters. I don’t know why they would want his shorts, shoes, jeans and t-shirts, but…whatever. So when middle child (daughter) went on her mission, she had me hide her clothes and swear I wouldn’t tell her sisters where they were. OH they looked for them. I never had such sibling problems, but then my closest sibling was 7 years older than me and a brother.

    TOfan, always enjoy reading your funny comments! Also, LOVE what you wrote on the upper right side of the page about “Via con Dios” and “brb, burrowing to the centre of the earth”! Hilarious!!!! 🙂

    Decent deconstruction for your doctoral thesis, TOfan. In fact, I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants. Fave parts:

    “I’m picturing two guys in balaclavas trying on a bajillion scarves and skinny jeans.” (Oh say can you see all the scarves? I wish there was video.)

    Brother-in-law: “Dibs on the cool potato sack cowl-neck thingie.”
    Friend: “Um, ya, you can have that one.” (I have seen no cooler potato sack fashion since Lucy and Ethel went to Paris)

    “I have run out of stuff to wear” — aha, the mystery of Belt-Gate is solved!” (Now I feel bad about making fun of the belt. Poor guy, not even a man belt to hold up his Brentchez.)

    “guess I’ll have to stop being stubborn” — what, you, David, stubborn? Had no idea. (LOLOL!)

    Thanks for this, you genius.

  6. ray says:

  7. rarchiefan says:

    ROFL, he definitely needs more clothes, well at least the elephant shirt got saved or the little clothes thieves didn’t want it. 😉 LOVE the breakdown!

  8. Read this earlier today. Still dying. ♥

  9. trace says:

    You have a great mind Tofan! Love this! 🙂

  10. archugeezer says:

    Are you reading to much into this? Of course you are. That’s why I come here. ❤

  11. archugeezer says:

    However, we probably need to chat later about dissing the potato sack. 🙂

  12. lani says:

    I’ll say it again Tofan… You are a genius!!!!!

    Thanks for the laugh always!! Please don’t stop 🙂

  13. peppertara says:

    Oh I’m trying to keep up with your wonderful humour! This is hilarious, loved reading through all of it, lots of chuckles. Yep, pretty cool shoes though….although, no, come winter they may not fare so well, ha. I remember on Idol days, D said he used to like the shopping. Well, maybe not so much anymore, just may have go on a shopping spree though.
    Thanks for all the laughs. 🙂

    Did anyone notice the bicep on the right arm holding the laptop in @stephaniemaybe’s tweet. Wowza. Where’d that come from.

    By the way, got a little distracted, loved the article. You get more out of a simple tweet than anyone I know. It was hilarious. I know I’m always going to laugh when I come to this site. You’re a real cheerer upper, if those are even words.

      Once again, my post is credited to Anon. I don’t know why it’s doing this. I have all the sign in blanks filled in. It should be Lynnella.

    Thanks for the funny reminders of days gone by! I especially love the Kari visuals.

    I also remember when he wished he could wear the same thing every day without having to think about it so I’m guessing he’s missing the designated wardrobe of the past two years. It’s been interesting to watch the things he’s dealt with as he’s come back to the regular world. More than would have occurred to me on my own.

    Loved your deconstruction of David’s tweets. I’ve been enjoying David’s tweets today. It seemed like a happy day for him in that he finished a song and Chile won. Loved the pictures too. Now we just need to hear a snippet of one of his new songs!

    TOfan, thanks for the laughs! Your impeccable timing for said humor is most sincerely appreciated! ( couldn’t have come at a better time 😉 )
