Add Jessica to make that a threesome. Couldn't be more boring. Heck, add Tara to make that a foursome even.

My regret is not so deep, nor the consequences so cataclysmic, for my folly to merit it's own thread. So, I post it here.
I look back ruefully at my missteps, the poor strategy, the sheer hubris. And I must admit that edmorel was right: I shoulda worn Allen-Edmonds seconds with my Steven Aver.
On the positive side, I now finally have several...

This is funny because all of you that are complaining must consider yourselves to be on the razor's edge of dressing well, but what your "norm" is is miles away from what 95% of well-dressed people consider "well dressed." And I am aware that the...
