Last week on a whim we decided to dress up for fun. That morning we woke up, pillaged our closet for fancy clothes, and then ran some mundane errands around the neighbourhood; we bought some groceries, got our shoes shined, stopped into Business Depot and a book store.
Overall, the experience was a little awkward and uncomfortable and I can’t say that anything good or interesting or beneficial resulted from wearing fancy clothes on an otherwise un-fancy day. I’m not even sure what we had expected in the first place? I think the point of the to-do was to push ourselves out of our casual comfort zone (which I guess it did). But mostly, it just felt like we were on our way to someone’s wedding.
