Paying Fancy Prices to Pretend that I Have A Fancy Life

Gentlemen on Sale

When I was practicing my 'Unplanned Wandering' this afternoon, I intruded into Indigo (a book store). As I mentioned in my previous entry, I am that kind of bastard who askes the staffs searching for some uncommon books but seldome buys them.

I accidentally found a book called Gentlemen: A Timeless Fashion. For me, this sort of book is a thicker version of fashion magazine that I usually would ignore or spit onto. But this time I stopped in front of it. What attracted me was the tag above it saying '80% off'. Oops, gentlemen's on sale!

Wait a second. Flipping through the book, I realized that to be a gentleman was still so damned expensive. From top to bottom, from underware to necktie, you gotta take care of everything. It echoed a blog I read from 'How to Pay Rent' about a gentleman and his wallet. Being Gentlemen is all about crapping money away (not in the toilet of course).

"My God", I repeated this line that I picked up from pornography and went away. I couldn't just stand there and keep embarassing myself and 'gentlemen', because I wore a pair of broken Converse and no underwear.

So close! A gentleman cost only 19.99 dollars (plus taxes) after the discount. But I still couldn't afford it.

Much can be said about a book like that, and some could be said about where you pick up your english expressions. Sadly, what will be remembered of this post after a few days is no underware.

I don't like underware hegemony. And porno actors are the most faithful religionists.

How do you know my another site. My friends in China cannot open this site, so I set it up for them. Basically it's a copy of this site, but I would write Chinese sometimes there. But I like Blogger's service.
