    I think sometimes online, people forget how old I am and what that means.
    I’m 61, was a teenager in the 1970s.
    I packed a lot of party in those years, all my friends did.
    I’m so glad I had so much fun and was lucky enough to get through it without any serious problems.
    I’ve been around the block a few times. 🤣 js

    Ha - I woulda been the kid sneaking beers from your parties lol - what I did with my parents and aunts and uncles - but by the time I was 13 my uncles just gave me the beers 🍻

    When I was little my dad would have me sneak him a beer (Schlitz) when my mom wasn’t looking.
    He always gave me the first sip. 😂
    I love the taste of beer.

    I used to believe that whenever possible everyone should own a navy suit (for interviews, etc) and a black suit (for funerals). I haven’t had a suit that fits me properly since my oldest was born almost 18 years ago and I’m not in a hurry to do anything about that.

    I’ve never owned a suit as an adult 🤷‍♂️

    It’s just not a necessity. If you like em, fine. If not, fine.

    You’re a good looking guy and I’m sure a suit would look great on you. It’s not a necessity though.

    What do you wear to weddings and funerals if you don't have a suit? We always make sure to have at least one suit for all in my family for funerals and weddings

    Either a pair of kachis and a polo - or just plan black slacks and button down - most ppl I know are the suit wearing type so if I showed up in a suit I’d be over dressed actually- but I’d like to have one if I ever walk my girls down the isle and what not -

    I think a lot of this is regional too. I love the more relaxed dress code where I live now

    This largely has to do with where I was raised and by whom but it’s also related to some baggage. When I was a very young adult I was living on my own and did not have much of a wardrobe or much of anything.

    At a certain point I had a couple of funerals to go to. I can’t remember if it was my grandfather or my stepmother because they both died around the same time but anyway I remember I wore a long olive green skirt and a modest black blouse.

    A close relative had something to say about how my dark green skirt was disrespectful. Never mind the fact that his wife was wearing a miniskirt. It was black so I guess that was ok. His comment hurt me deeply & I guess it still does a little. It’s ok though because I eventually cut all those MFers off.

    Yes! This was my hometown too. I’d simply be wearing a blouse and jeans and people would ask if I was going to a wedding! Smh I’m overdressed most places I go but also know nothing about the suit and gown fancy ppl life.
