On whimsy and the accessory

Normally, and even though the dress code permits otherwise, I wear a tie to the office. I like to, and I like the look of a tie.

One day last week (possibly because of the warmth of the weather, though that seldom impedes me) I went to work neckwearless. And in informal chat with a couple of co-workers, the lack was noticed; and I did joke that I felt naked without the necktie.

So, on a lark, at lunchtime I sauntered up to one of the bargain shops, and bought this 'un for ten dollars. And the cashier approved warmly of my color choice. "More men should wear pink," she advised.
