I walk out in the garage and the wife yells at me. "You are NOT going to yell at me!"

I pause, considering what is happening, and wonder what I did earlier in the day to warrant this. Certain I had done many things to warrant this moment, I did my basic self-defense maneuver and kept my mouth shut.

She goes over to the washing machine.

"Now, you are the one who brought that carpet out of the boxes and left it laying around, so I decided to wash it."

I glance through the glass front of the washing machine, and there lay a beautifully colored, pink Judo gi.

Discussing the matter with a friend, who pointed out, "You are NOT Judo Gene Lebell."

Point well-taken.

Good lesson, don't let women near your gi.

Only I am allowed to wash my gi I don't even trust other Judoka with doing it.

Wear it proudly.

Claim to be Gene Lebell's illegitimate love child....or the heir to his judo secrets?

Strongarm your wife into taking Judo and let that be her gi. OR
Seppuku with your wife cutting off your head. OR
Buy a new gi, Judo gis are cheap. Be glad it wasn't a $300 Lucky BJJ gi. OR
Wear it proudly and use it as inspiration to get as good as Gene. OR
Be Judo Gene for Halloween next year.

That's what I said to a friend who had the same situation. Now you have a legacy to uphold.

A real man would wear it proudly. This also means training your ass off so that noone wants to question why you have a pink gi.

Divorce your wife, find a "happy" guy called Lance and embrace your new lifestyle,

best advice I can give sorry, maybe Lance know's how to remove the dye?

To be fair seppuku may be the most honourable soloution for you though if you don't want to man up to that then do penance by wearing your pink Gi to your Judo club at least 3 times so you can give all the other guys a good laugh. Then when you have a new GI only wash it yourself.

Personally I get a bit obsessive about my Gi and would never let my girlfriend wash it or even touch it if I can help it. I also go funny about my belts, and really miss my old white belt as I had that thing for ages as it took a while to get round to do my first grading and by that time it was imbued with all my hard work, plus other peoples blood and sweat which is the best bit, now I have this new belt and it just does not feel right at all.

Wear it proudly.

Good point. I amend my suggestion to: stitch a feather boa to the trim and wear makeup to training.

Is asking for photo allowable in this case?
