Think of the most comfortable clothes you could wear? Done. Good. For me, it is jeans. I love wearing jeans, and at work, if I ever come to work in jeans, people look at me as if I slept under a bridge.
Then, many people will say the exact same words, "A little casual today, huh?" Or perhaps, "Dressing casual today?" It is almost as if there is some sort of employee policy: Ifyou see a coworker in comfortable clothing, ridicule them until they conform to the uncomfortable standards we set at this company.
We are all morons.
We have the power to say, "Nice jeans." And leave it at that. But even though I hate hearing the casual policy stuff, I have caught myself saying "dressing casual today?" Me, the one who hates this so much have said it. More than once.
Jeans are so freekin' comfortable, and nearly everyone looks good in jeans. Heck, you can dress them up with a jacket or such, and you still look hot in jeans. So what is bad about a company's bottom line if people wear jeans?
We definitely are not playing with a full deck.
Comfortable clothes – can't work in them, can't go to the grocery store in them. We do things around the house in comfortable clothes. You do it, I do it, we all do it, and we are freekin' morons.
There are some things that are good for you – when I went off to college, I ate a little more, gained a little weight (the freshman five), and then adjusted. I wore nice things to school in high school. In college, after a month, I rolled out of bed, showered, and put on shorts and a t-shirt. Shoes for this shoe lover: tennis shoes or sandals. If you would have given me this information when I was a senior in high school, I would not have believed how I would have dressed myself as a freshman in college.
Now that I am a fully-functioning adult – I wear, for the most part, uncomfortable clothes to work, to church, out to dinner, and on the weekend (unless we are bumming around the house). We only have so much time on this Earth, and it looks like we will spend many of our days in uncomfortable clothes, uncomfortable shoes.
We indeed are idiots.
I got the following from VX. I normally don't do these things, but it was a "what the hell" type of day.
|You Belong in Amsterdam|
A little old fashioned, a little modern - you're the best of both worlds. And so is Amsterdam.
Whether you want to be a squatter graffiti artist or a great novelist, Amsterdam has all that you want in Europe (in one small city).
