282) Dress up…for fun 11 Nov 2012

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.

    Well, if anything else, it’s nice to see you both looking pretty dapper and terrific!

    Our society may have lost something by not looking ‘dapper and terrific’ more often.

    You don’t look very fancy, so this one doesn’t work. I can see his screen-printed t-shirt and the garment tag on the sleeve of the jacket – fancy (normal) people remove those.

    Firstly, you got us…we’re not fancy people. I have just one pair of jeans that I call my “fancy pants”, I only wear those to “fancy” places I can’t get away with cargo pants or shpants. This is why me wearing a jacket and Laura flossing some pearls in a convenience store seemed plenty dapper enough for us.

    As far as leaving the tag on, I was kind of going for the gansta ‘leave the tag’ on look. I guess that’s not a cross cultural theme?
