Dress For Success

“One of the reasons you’re suffering from such loneliness is because you have absolutely no taste,” Ruby said.

“What do you mean by that?” Frank asked.6145B1C0-4D01-4F0B-8E28-5DB73BEDA434“Look at yourself, Frank,” Ruby said. “You dress like an aging hippie. It’s 2020, not 1970.”

“Hey, I’ll be damned if I’m going to start dressing in a manner designed to oblige what others define as high fashion,” Frank said. “I’m fine dressing like an old hippie.”

Ruby let out a sigh, turned around and, as she walked away, quietly said, “an old hippie fool.”

    I dressed as a hippie one Halloween not that long ago and my brother didn’t even recognize me as I trick or treated at his door. He gave me a pile of little chocolate bars. I then went around the back and rang the back doorbell and said, “Hey, you didn’t even recognize me, did you?” As I took off my wig and glasses. I think I finally pulled one over on him. It was glorious!

    Isn’t he TOMMY, not Frank? O_o 😆 I have a nephew-in-law (married to my niece) who is a dyed (tie dyed 😆 ) in the wool hippy. She has adapted (do not fight the assimilation! It’s futile) and my brother (her dad), who is very conservative and right wing almost has apoplexy ever time they get together. For the last few get togethers, I notice the couple has other considerations and can’t come. For myself? I LOVE them to death, I think it’s so nifty that they feel secure enough to embrace their inner hippie. And I feel oddly at home around them too! 😛

      Back in the day I was a long-haired, tie-dyed hippie and every once in a while I still let my freak flag fly.
