It doesn't Matter What You Wear, Just As Long As You Are There
When Kimberly and I still lived in California, my brothers and we would gather around the time of the Winter Solstice to discuss the events of the year. It was always a fun and funny meeting. Quite a few years ago, we arrived at the conclusion that everybody has 3 different sets of clothes.
They were given very simple names: First Ways, Second Ways, and Third Ways.
Your First Ways are those that you have to wear to go to work. The suit and tie, the dress and proper shoes, socks, stockings. Kimberly's 1st ways are Yoga gear.
The Second Ways are those that you wear when not working. These are your choice. You wear these to the movies, shopping, walking the dog, going to parties. Second Ways are more casual and could include all sorts of sportswear for those athletes out there.
I know Dan Duffey can't wait to get out of those salesman clothes and put on a baseball shirt and cleats.
But best of all are the Third Ways. Those are what you wear when you are home for the day or night and ain't going anywhere. And nobody is coming for a visit. Third Ways are the loose, baggy sweats and t-shirt. The warm socks or slippers.
It's a Sunday afternoon, it's raining, there's a great movie on the DVD player, you've got all your snacks and wines or whatever...that's the perfect time for the Third Ways.
You all know what I am talking about. Here is a guy who long ago understood that the 3rd way was the best way.
Here is Richard Nixon and Fidel Castro. These guys never figured this out and always wore the same thing
My problem is that I no longer have use for first way clothes. Until we go to a wedding or a Halloween party, I will not wear a suit. When I get up, I slip into my 3rd ways and only maybe put on shoes to check the mail
Does that put me in the same league with Hef?
