Overheard - What to Wear on Elgin

1st Street Person on step: {to young man in grey pinstripe suit with grey tie who had just turned down a request for money} Now if you'd a gone with a yellow tie it would'a worked out better... 2nd Street Person on step: You would have got the job promotion.

Because I'm always thinking:

  1. A yellow tie would have worked better.
  2. Could style advice be a new line for these guys to go into? I'd pay a buck or two a day to look better. I'd pay even more for them to tell other people how to dress.

I could use some fashion help myself. Where can I find these guys?

They were on the west side of Elgin, on the block north of Gilmour.

But, please, stop fishing for compliments. You don't need fashion help.

Thanks Dave. Hey maybe I don't need to go to Elgin & Gilmour after all, I can just pop in here and ask you.

Do you think these pants make my ass look fat?

David Scrimshaw said...

For pants to do that to you, they'd have to be made out of 50lb sacks of potatoes. With the potatoes.

I'll have to stop by here more often.

Maybe you should invent "Fishing for Compliments Day."

I believe we are both too late to invent that day.

Apparently it is sometime in February. (see the 2:47 comment)
