Laden in Red

Platypus-transparentAhhhh… I have the red shirt on as I write this, the demise of which has been urged by 50% of the harem since prior to the Remake experience. I am wearing it with new jeans, however, so I am not a complete affront to Kat’s teachings, still I feel somewhat naughty. She’s like, “Why don’t you wear the good stuff all the time?” and I’m like, “So it will last longer for when I inflict myself upon Other People.”

This is a reason why clothing has to be livable for me: I don’t think about it. If I get the not infrequent urge to make bread, I guarantee you I’ll be wearing black and I won’t consider that until the point where flour assures I am wearing grey. Yeah, I have a chef’s jacket. It’s black. Go figure. I was forever ruining dress shirts at work by jumping in to equipment repairs without putting a lab coat on first. Greasy pole in the neighbourhood? I’ll lean against it wearing a suit or a new jacket. Guaranteed.

Kathryn asked me if I’d ever wear the old relaxed fit jeans again and was surprised when I said yes. I have to preserve the good stuff. Put it down to lack of awearness.

P.S. Dating Site Status: Among those stating an interest, the average age has dropped to 46.75. Let’s see how close to my mental age (13) this gets.

Make Twitter work for me, or convince me it’s a hoax – @shpak60


  1. Wow. That is almost my exact age. Which means I’m your exact average reader. Or your only one.

    • I was talking about the dating site. And she was too normal to be you.

  2. I know this feeling! Kathryn gave me advice on clothing
    and what i should be wearing. I took her advice and received many
    comments on how thin and good I look now.. But I too slip back to my
    old clothes that are too big for me and fit incorrectly. Today something
    strange happened. I received comments on how good I look in the
    old garb. So I think her methods do more than provide new, better fitting
    duds. They create confidence that make people take notice!

    Now if I could only get used to that part… Sometimes there is something to be said for blending in with the wallpaper. lol

    Bottom line is… she told me what would happen if I did what she said…
    and everything she said would happen, did.

    The woman knows her stuff!

    • I’m not sure I trust her with all that power. But I am having trouble arguing with the results.
