One of our cats was born with big eyes and small stomach. Sits on top of old 1930 style radiators to look out the windows and BLECCCH! Otherwise normal, athletic fella.

Oh, that makes MUCH more sense! I had a car radiator in mind, and I couldn't quite wrap my head around how that could happen.

That's fine. You may not remember the kind of domestic radiators that I do. Big tall bastards.

I am familiar with them and lived in an apartment block with radiators many, many years ago, but they're not as common in residential housing as they once were, and that's likely a good thing. They weren't particularly energy-efficient. Hope your cat is feeling better.

Thanks! He's been to several vets and a specialist. Blood tests, MRIs, etc, no one can diagnose the vomiting. We're just careful how much we feed him as compared to the others. We can tell how hungry he is by how much of mail or papers laying around he takes a bite of.

Here in Texas, we adult men wear collared shirts, clean jeans or khakis, cowboy boots or leather shoes, and a belt.
Doc, you may want to get a second opinion. There might be a pole lodged in your posterior region...

I don't buy it. My spouse is a tech consultant who works with client companies all over Texas. He tells me that he's seen everything from shorts and flip-flops to suits and ties. Depends on the industry. He always checks with an engagement manager familiar with the client before he travels. If nobody knows, he makes an educated guess. Banks mean at least button-downs and trousers and perhaps a suit coat and tie. Tech companies mean khakis or nice jeans and his own employer's logoed polo shirt. If it's not clear, he takes a little bit of everything and adjusts.

I said adult men. Why would any man want to dress like a teenager? It's more than who you you are in life, it's also about how your behavior affects others.

Dress every day like you're going to the bank to get a loan. (We don't wear ties here in Texas unless in a formal situation.)

There is no debate about this: people judge you by the way that you speak and present yourself.

Dressing in comfortable clothes, like t-shirts and shorts, is not an indication that one is dressing like a teenager. And in some industries, particularly the creative sector, it's the norm. Being slovenly is another issue entirely.

Yes. But that is something I’ve noticed in this forum - casual being equated automatically to sloppy. One can be sloppy in a suit if it doesn’t fit correctly, if it’s wrinkled/dirty, or if it’s badly out of date. Conversely, one can look quite spiffy in casual clothing.
