Free mint julep with purchase

Oh, cruel fate. Here I am without any disposable income and today I get an e-mail regarding a Jos. A. Bank sale. Why am I lamenting this? Because I could get a seersucker suit for $143.20 if I act by Monday. To paraphrase George Costanza, I've always wanted to be ensconced in seersucker, but never had the nerve to buy an actual suit. That and the whole "livin' in the Midwest" thing - not to mention being under 50 - doesn't really cater to that type of outfit. But I am planning on moving back South sooner rather than later. And in my head I'm a Southern Dandy. This is a great buy - almost worth going into (more) debt for. But I think I'll just wait until next time. Now I need to figure out something else to wear to the premiere of the "Dukes of Hazzard" movie.

You know how I feel about seersucker.

Still looking for an opportunity to get a third wearing out of my white s.s. dress. Sakes alive,,, when are we eating red velvet cake?

It must be "wish list day" I was just about to drop a blog about something similar. Okay, not similar at all, but still a purchase of something that I don't need.

Now lemme get seersucker specific: it's kinda ghey. But, since it's what you want I will pray that you will be able to pull it off. Depending on how you look at things, my prayers have been coming closer and closer to hitting the mark.

For instance, Heidi Klum married Seal. Seal and I are very similar in that we (a) are strikingly unhandsome and (b) have careers that are in the toilet. That cannot be purely coincidental. I like to believe that had I prayed a bit harder, been stronger in my faith...well, then she'd be Mrs. Heidi Heartbreak Shall Endure.

And it is this narrator's position that these strange things happen all of the time.
