on thursday, we wear bowties-- polka dots, redwhite&blue, pinstripes, dog-themed, cat-themed.
it’s always fun to see who wears what. last year, karen wore a st. pat’s bowtie
that really knocked our socks off: green background, two pots of shining gold on either side
connected by the most gorgeous rainbow. after work, we went to the city’s last irish pub
and cried and cried and cried and cried and cried. on friday, we are allowed to wear blue jeans.
