Speaking for myself, prep time depends on what strikes my fancy in terms of what I want to wear on a given day. I do choose what I wear, during the week, the night before, and depending on how complicated a sartorial fandango I wish to perpretrate, the whole process takes between five and fifteen minutes, on average. Spousal assistance extends only to my technologically obsessed husband's excellent taste in camera equipment (a Canon G1X, I believe) - a tripod and a timer...
You obviously didn't hear the slurring of my words due to the fact that my tongue was firmly planted in my cheek.
Caustic only speaks Murrican - the concept of "football" as it's played outside of the USA is totally foreign to him.

(Whether or not I had a brain fart while thinking things out I leave to the viewer's...
Thank you, Caustic. On the noise levels present in the financial district at night, the news that the area is a residential area hasn't reached the various department of public works of the City of New York, which performs road repair and other noisy activities at night, even though many buildings are now apartments or hotels, not offices. Part of that may be for traffic control during daytime hours, part, I am sure, just due to habit of public works.
