This morning as I was getting dressed to leave the gym, I noticed a guy who was, despite all Social Norms, wearing a denim shirt and jeans.
Of course I started to dissect this man because I write a blog and it is my duty to ponder the irrelevant things in life.
My first impression of this man was that he is the do or die type. Black or white, yes or no, go big or go home. There is no “gray area” for this man.
He knew that today was Jeans Friday, and he took Jeans Friday and punched it in its face.
I imagine he woke up this morning, strutted to his closet and decided that today was the day he’d finally show everyone at work What He Was About. Other Jeans Fridays had come and gone, and he was always left with feeling as if he could’ve done so much more.
So today, when his alarm went off, he slipped on his jeans (stonewashed, of course) then slipped on his button-down denim shirt (business casual), and made sure that today would be regret-free. Well, as regret-free a day as a man who wears denim head to toe can have.
My second impression was that this man is a super hero, and Fridays just happen to be Denim Man’s busiest day, so he has to get an early start. But that doesn’t really make sense.
Or does it?
