My new suit

Following an uneventful day at work, I went out shopping. We are now well into the summer over here, with the temperature around 32-34C (around the 90sF I guess), and having a job interview on Friday, I needed a summer suit.
It has been a long time since I last went shopping and had forgotten how bittersweet the experience can be. I love taking my time going through the racks of clothing, taking my time choosing the material, coordinating colours, and combining items of clothing into different sets.
What gets up my nose is being pressured! "Do you need some help sir?", "Can I show you this in blue?", "I have a belt that would look excellent with your shoes and this suit", and stuff like that!
Today was a good day, though. Despite the number of people in the store, the most attractive, I thought, of the ladies in it, came to my assistance.
She helped me with choosing a good RAF kinda blue coloured suit and combining a leather belt and a shirt with it. I am well pleased with my purchases, and look forward to knocking them dead in my upcoming interview on Friday.

BTW, when you start working again, remember an Aquarian 13/2/67 (Fire Goat), who is tired of life's surprises! ;)

ohh, so Epi is an old goat?
I'll remember that. ;-)

I can't believe all those interviewers were oblivious to Aquarius brains wrapped in Goat charm. That is a Greek tragedy!

Wear the new suit - not for them for you. That suit will remind you what a "cool dude" you are. Never mind the other jobs you never got. Those weren't the right ones. "The Job" is still out there. That golden fleece job just meant for you. Believe in it, dream of it, get ready to celebrate it.. wear the suit..

be.. (_E=mc2_)
