When one entertains female friends, one should try not to look quite as seedy as certain unnamed parties habitually do. Who’s entertaining?! Who’s a female friend? Who looks seedy?! A spotted tie is just the thing when you’re wearing stripes! Tigers have a natual flair for causal chic! I can’t believe this. Why didn’t you kill her when she came in the door?! By the way, if you had made proper introductions, we might have smooched her hand. Here, let me adjust the narrow end of your tie about eight inches. Mom offers Susie a snack.
