The Man of the House and I both work at home. We don’t belong to many groups or organizations. In short, we don’t get out much. So we’re free to dress as we please. As you can imagine, that leads to a lot of jeans, shorts and t-shirts.
However twice a week we dress for dinner. I put on a dress and lipstick. TMOTH sheds his shorts and t-shirt for a shirt and slacks. We put a bottle of wine in the refrigerator and have something nice for dinner. Twice a week we declare dinner to be a special occasion. We always do it on Fridays and the other night varies. Who says that there needs to be an “occasion” for a special occasion? It’s important to enjoy the moment and be with the people you love. That’s occasion enough to dress for dinner.
