"casualness" of dress. It seems that I'm always overdressed. I don't mind being only a notch up, but not noticeably sticking out like a sore thumb.
The first time I noticed it was in church. I feel people will act better when dressed best. It's more respectful. I guess I'm wrong because I seem to be the only one dressed up.
Another time when I felt out of place was at the dress rehearsal dinner for my daughter's wedding. I thought a dinner, especially a special dinner, would call for a dress. It wasn't anything fancy dress, just a dress. But I was the only one not in shorts.
Now tonight, I've just come back from a retirement party. I wore the dress in the picture. I was so overdressed I felt like I was the Mother of the Bride. People wore shorts. Most just wore pants and a top. My Director wore jeans, an Hawaiian shirt, and a sports jacket. I felt like I was among the Village People.
I just feel that I'm right. It's the rest of the world that's wrong.
