Manicured or could you care less what your yard looks like?

What kind of dresser are you - classy, trendy, bold or combination/no one particular style?

Cook in/grill out or go out on a scorching hot day?

I can't recall having done so, but I am old.  It could have happened.   I haven't done so recently.  Are you missing the part about I don't like to shop, and don't like to own a lot of things?  I have exactly as many clothes as I need and use.  I do not see the point of buying something I might not ever have an occasion to wear.  It is not like you cannot get to a store whenever you need to.  Stores are everywhere.

Well, there's limited, and there's unlimited.  Those are the only two choices.  I never heard of ANYONE having an unlimited wardrobe.

I think you just might.  See blondie behind you?  That's 2013.  She didn't read the antebellum etiquette book.  You have good arms, if that was your concern.  Anyone can tell blondie doesn't exactly lift weights.  She's in style, not standing out and drawing attention to herself.  She's overlookable.

What does that mean?

It could have happened.   I haven't done so recently.  Are you missing the part about I don't like to shop, and don't like to own a lot of things?  I have exactly as many clothes as I need and use.  I do not see the point of buying something I might not ever have an occasion to wear.  It is not like you cannot get to a store whenever you need to.  Stores are everywhere.

Yeah, stores are everywhere and I guess if you don't even window shop or look online, you wouldn't notice that there are things out there that you MIGHT like even if you DON'T have a place to where them NOW.

The point of fashion is to be overlookable?

What, I should just go out and buy whatever I like and hope I eventually have a place to wear the clothes.  Not my style.  I don't spend money on things unless I really want them or really need them.  I don't want clothes I might not have an opportunity or need to wear, and I certainly don't need them.

Really? I guess you have never seen an episode of Cribs. lol. You DO realize that MANLY (at least IME) people have more clothes that just what they humanily need, right?

Were you raised to "save" new items of clothes?  Or is this a new trend I never heard of?  And where's my dang etiquette tome, for pete's sake??
