I thought that you hot-soaked them with them on in the tub?

Is that a "Drape-o-meter" I need one

It is impressive that your bowel movements are that volcanic...or should I say, Vesuvial.

The most accurate Drape-o-meter that I have seen is FNB's word count.

I wish it were my size. There's a Tom Ford hidden in it that can be hacked out.

That's funny. I seem to remember about 18 months ago someone planning a trip to Italy and looking for advice on where to get a nice sportscoat rather than a specific model of sportscoat.

Believe it or not, a lot of people are looking for something done well rather than for something specific.

That's not to say that you shouldn't be aware of what someone likes to cut just that outside of the internet people tend to care more about quality and skill of execution than relative degrees of drape.

Wait...there are people outside of the internet?

How does one go about meeting them? Facebook?

Facebook friends sound like such a great idea. They don't come over and sit on the sofa. Unfortunately, I signed up for the damn thing, and don't know how to use it, so a lot of my real friends, who have sent me "friend requests" and never gotten a reply, think that I don't think much of them. The upside to that is, I guess, less people sitting on the sofa.

So she tugs on your sleeves when you're just standing there? Luca told me try doing that myself, but I never thought to make the missus do it for me.

I tug on the sleeves once in awhile. My wife tugs on the front and side seams.

I like where this is going.
