heh, same deal for me with the bag. Â Also, I purposely wear the pair of shoes least recently polished if it's going to rain. Â Why get a newly-shined pair all wet? Â When going to the gym in the morning and carrying my clothes, I keep the shoe trees in my shoes. Â I always walk on the shaded side of the block (in NYC) to minimize perspiration, but I guess that's more of a comfort thing. Also, I amused a fellow guest at a recent wedding. Â I was wearing my nicest suit and had placed the jacket on the back of a chair strategically chosen to avoid traffic. Â I wouldn't normally have removed my jacket, but it was very hot and humid, and we had to stay outside until the food was served. Â In any case, two other guests decide to sit at the table with my jacket, one of whom was smoking a cigar and flicking ash dangerously close. Â As nonchalantly as I could, I went over and moved the chair holding my jacket as far away from that person as I could. Â Several minutes later, the same guy rested his hand holding the cigar on my jacket. Â I couldn't believe it. Â I immediately went over, took my jacket, and wore it for the rest of the afternoon. Â Granted, clothes are just clothes and shouldn't be obsessed over (too much), but resting one's cigar on some else's jacket is unbelievably ridiculous.
I like nice clothes, but I can't afford to replace them frequently, so I admit to being a bit on the anal side when it comes to taking care of them. Regards, dan
