Today is National Bow Tie Day….But Not For Me!
I could never do it. I tried. I wanted to do it? I failed miserably.
I could never tie a bow tie. Because of my girth, I always thought a bow tie would match my size a little better athan a long, thin neck tie hanging down 3 feet from my neck. When I failed to master the art of tying a bow tie I resorted to clip-ons. That was awful, as they were too obvious.
So, for decades I have admired bow tie wearers, but was never able to wear one myself.
Now....my brother Jimmy. He wears a bow tie to his job in Houston every day. At weddings, funerals, family soirees we always expect Jim to show up in a hand-tied bow tie. He must have 100 of them
It irritates me.....
