Diptych: Bachelor number 1

So, I was told the other day by a certain giant teenager who goes by the name of Andrew, that my “diptych” series was “boring.” In order to spice things up a bit then, I’m including you in a dating game show.

Yesterday I was given two shirts by some missionaries who were doing a spring clean. I thought one of the shirts would be perfect to wear on a first blind date! 🙂

So, what do you say? Which one would cause the young damsel to flutter her eyelashes at me, declare her undying love, and not notice my lack of charm and social adroitness? The understated shiny, floral, see-through, Doctor Livingstone collared shirt, or the tasteful black one?

Please help.

    Neither. A long-sleeved button down in a soft chambray of blue or tan, sleeves rolled up part way, tucked comfortably into jeans or other casual pant of your choice, with matching sock color and your best casual business shoes, depending on the amount of walking the date entails. No watch or jewelry, smartphone turned off. Brush your teeth.

      I was joking, of course. But then, the real problem we have here in Madagascar is that one can’t actually go out and buy any new clothes, even if one could explain to the salesperson what “chambray” is. Shoes and socks? Nope, I don’t have those here either. The teeth-brushing shouldn’t be a problem though.

    The white one. No lover needs a caption.

      Wa ha ha ha, Bianca. Tell you what, I’ll wear the black one when we go and play rugby later. Just to distract you.

    I will just plead the fifth or whatever Americans always say in courts when they do not want to answer a question.
