I’m supposed to be at a get-together tonight (Saturday). I don’t want to call it a party, because it isn’t really. It’s more of a Fund raiser.
One of the very nice people that both my husband and I work with at the hospital was diagnosed with cancer a couple of months ago and given only 5 months to live. I’m not sure of exactly what kind of cancer she has but it’s obviously a very bad case. The dinner party fundraiser is being held to raise some money to help her kids when she’s gone.
I’m not feeling very well today at all, so unfortunately I decided not to attend the fundraiser.
Chris on the other hand is there right now. He told me that the party was supposed to be semi-formal. Would you care to know what his idea of semi-formal is?
- Faded, almost green grey tinged blue jeans – I guess that’s the “semi” part – and running shoesA suit Jacket – dark blue and wrinkled since he never took it out of the travel bag since he last wore it, nor did he get it cleaned.A white dress shirt
An Irish green tie
The whole outfit wouldn’t look that bad if 1. he didn’t wear that colour tie, and 2. if you disregard the wrinkles in his suit jacket, but all together it’s too much. The green tie clashes with the jeans and slightly with the suit jacket.
I tried to get him to put on a tie of a different colour. No- his other ties are grey and blue and that’s too funeral like. Alright then … I seem to remember him having a nice red one, but he made it clear that he was going with the green tie.
So I tried another approach pointing out the wrinkles in his suit jacket and suggested that he wear his grey suit jacket, or he has a slightly more casual beige one. No, he doesn’t like the gray one and didn’t look for the beige one.
Oh well, knowing him that suit jacket has been off pretty much since he arrived at the dinner party fundraiser. If the other guests at the party were lucky hopefully he removed the tie too! If he didn’t remove the tie he’s probably really clashing right now.
I love the guy, but he leaves me shaking my head an awful lot more than I think I should be shaking it. LOL Men!
Chris didn’t stay at the dinner / fundraiser too late. He came home at about ten o’clock since he had to work at 7 this morning. I had forgotten to mention that along with the tacky green tie and wrinkled jacket he was also bringing his guitar.
We had received a call from one of the organizers of the party at about 5 pm on Saturday with a special request for Chris to bring his guitar and play at the party. He did of course! He never misses a chance to play in front of an audience. Apparently, about 200 people attended the dinner so he had a good sized audience. I wish I’d been there to see him perform. He’s always entertaining.
