Okay, you are a millionaire. And not one of those silly poor people with exactly one million on their heavily credited bank accounts, no, you are the real thing. You’ve got… let’s say… one million and twenty dollars.
You know that you are the king of the world – your mom always says so. You roll the nickels. The game is yours. You deal the cards… Sorry, it was a bit Charles Manson-ish.
Anyway, you’ve got all that million and a twenty, when you suddenly realise that you’re out of milk. It’s that simple. And your mom’s like: “Go and get me that milk, boyo! The cat is hungry. And don’t forget to throw away the rubbish!” And you’re like: “MooOOm!” kinda trying to object, but then realising that you’re not gonna get your bedtime cookies until it’s done.
So you put your millionaire outfit on, dinner jacket and all. ‘Cos ain’t no one seeing you without a bow-tie. You’ve been working so hard (selling your granny’s property) to become a millionaire, so you must look like one! Ain’t nobody taking it away from you.
Your time is now. It is time to do some serious grocery shopping.
“I remember times when I was working as a rubbish collector!… Oh, wait… Nah, that wasn’t me. It was some other dude I knew… Still, I could’ve made one hell of a rubbish collector! But I am a millionaire. I need to focus on that.”
It’s very easy to look sharp in a dinner suit. But we here are not for easy. Try to make it a bit more interesting and challenging. Combine your black dinner jacket with navy dinner trousers, linking that look with a navy bow-tie. Who would’ve thought one could look quite different within such strict borders of dinner attire?
Usually, you would need to wear a double cuff shirt with your dinner blazer. But people like me and you, we don’t live by the rules. We’re gonna use a single cuff shirt with a smaller collar. Let’s go crazy, brother!
The cuffs of your shirt should be visible for about half an inch to an inch. This rule does not apply if you’re riding a supermarket trolley though…
Remember, the fact that you wear the same items of clothing as everyone else doesn’t mean you should look like everyone else. Find your own “thing” for every outfit, use it thoughtfully, and make your look unique.
“I need to become more realistic and stop flying in the skies… The supermarket’s got closed! Which means – no milk. Which means – I’m gonna be grounded. Again! The good thing is, that I haven’t spent any money. I’m still a millionaire! And tomorrow’s gonna be a perfect day for some serious grocery shopping! Yaaay!”
