Today was a great day for a BBQ hosted by the Richmond Chamber of Commerce. Great food, even better people. Gary won a nice black golf shirt. Unfortunately, it didn’t fit him, but he was nice enough to give it to Karen’s son. The announcer, who was one of the director’s of the Chamber, couldn’t pronounce our company’s name. Integritas = integrity + as; similar to Securitas. ToMAtoes, toMAToes – same difference, right?
What to wear to these occasions? It was a hot, sunny day, yet gentlemen came in their shirts, ties and suit jackets. These men were glowing from their perspiration. Gary was smart enough to wear a white polo shirt so that there wouldn’t be visible stains. As women, we are able to get away from the heat by wearing skirts and dresses that allow air to flow in and out for a great cooling effect. And poolside barbecues are usually business casual, no? Note to men out there: when you wear a suit jacket, you must wear a tie, and vice versa. Why put yourself in a position where you’re getting cooked alive in the sun? Just take it easy and pop your polo’s collar.
