Speaking of tacky, sometimes for shizz and giggz and in honor of my pseudo-Hawaiian roots, I like to wear my fancy-schmancy Reyn Spooner aloha shirt to werk, which invariably elicits the following responses from my family:
Busy daddy: “You look like a teller from First Hawaiian Bank in that shirt.”Me: I’m kinda sorta feelin’ that vibe today. You can call me Gilbert Tanaka. How can I help you with your mortgage needs?Busy daddy: “You need to get out more.”
The boy: “Dad, you look like you’re wearing pajamas today.”Me: I’m wearing an aloha shirt and Very Important Business People in Hawaii wear these shirts instead of suits and ties, so I’m actually dressed kinda sorta fancy today.The boy: “Well, 1) we’re not in Hawaii, so whatevs. And, 2) your shirt looks nice.
P.S., I suppose wearing baby blue linen shorts aren’t helping my case. Whomp whomp.
