If I Start Now, Maybe Nobody Will Think Twice When I Go Bald

Also, Languagehat has inspired me to wear hats more. I have a nice Panama that I rarely use, and I wore last week. It went well with a pale linen shirt (ecru, maybe?) and olive pants. I felt almost sartorially resplendent, which I really haven't been for years if you don't include the same two holidays every year. I have to be careful, though. I was made fun of on Sunday before last for knowing which color mauve was. I didn't give in to that horrid nerdy childish desire to flaunt that I knew the word mauve was invented as the name for the first synthetic dye in the 19th century.
