I have been really busy with all kinds of important stuff, but I’m taking a few minutes out of my busy schedule to share some of my valuable insights.
Actually that’s a lie. I have had plenty of time to blog here but I have just felt like doing other stuff. I was going to apologize profusely for not having posted for a long time but I realized that would have been a “demonstration of lower value”, the dreaded DLV. I guess rule one is don’t apologize, unless it is to your pissed-off boss or customer, or it’s helpful in manipulating someone- which it will sometimes be- and rule two is you can lie and try to make yourself look better. What I’m telling you, dear readers, is bullshit people, but only in a positive way- don’t tell people you’re sorry when you’re not, but make yourself look good if you can.
Anyway I was at the pho place the other day and I see this guy, eating by himself. It’s a low-cost lunch place so not unusual. He appeared to be tall and well-built. He was bald but had shaved his head and it looked good. I suppose he would have been handsome and imposing, but the trouble was he was wearing warm-up pants, a warm-up jacket and a down vest. The clothing was all cheap and shapeless. Had he been shorter, less handsome and well-built, he would have looked like a complete loser. Had he been decently dressed, he would have looked very impressive.
I am trying to overhaul my casual wardrobe. I had been wearing some cheap mock turtleneck shirts in the winter, but they are a little too warm. Old Navy sells long-sleeve T-shirts in tall sizes but only on-line, so I want to get some of those. A long-sleeve T-shirt seems to be warm but not too warm. I am having trouble getting blue jeans I like in my size so I may have to buy those on-line too.
I would like to get some pull-on boots as casual footwear but they are expensive.
In a word- dress cool.
