Boys Don’t Tie…

…but last night I wanted to.

I hereby call upon the deity, wizard or higher power that invented the neck spasm to please uninvent it. A grown man should be able to go to bed knowing that he’ll be able to get out of it the next morning. And as long as we’re asking for bodily amendments, could we get to the bottom of this sudden onset of ear hair after one turns 39 or 40? There has to be a geneticist or anatomical anthropologist out there who can get to the bottom of this? I mean, the neck spasms will (hopefully) go away, but do I really have to spend the rest of my life tweezing the ol’ radars?

Speaking of necks, I write a necktie blog, so I’ll get off Santa’s lap here and get down to bizness.

Have a nice trip, see you next fall

Since it is Thanksgiving, I decided to get autumnal with my tie selection, and I knew just the strip I needed. The Tie du Jour is a gorgeous paisley from Brooks Brothers, given to me by Diane for my birthday a couple years back. It’s a little orange and green, and a lot of deep maroon red; it’s set off quite nicely by the blue square-check shirt. This pattern would make a great, big comfy couch, which would likely be in the top 3 or 4 best sofas in the world (Question: is there a technical difference between a couch and a sofa?).

So, we have a very short week…while I’ll wear a tie on Tuesday, I’m not yet sure about Wednesday, and there definitely won’t be a Tie du Thursday, nor a (Freebie) Friday this week. I am, however, feeling a need for a weekly tie theme here, so let’s come up with one. I could probably reprise Red Tie Week, or perhaps Blue Tie Week, but where’s the fun in that?

We all know by now  that the day after Thanksgiving is the unofficial start of the Christmas shopping season. As mentioned all the way back in the previous paragraph, I won’t be sporting a tie on that day, but next week, and perhaps for the next fortnight, I will honor the art of gift-giving by choosing TdJs that were given to me by friends and family. Decision = Made.

Thanks for reading…Brooke

    My ears are fine – what about my nose? Can I move that growth to my head?
