I was outside yesterday and my neighbor was walking by.  Nice socks he called out.  What?  who doesn't wear multi-colored knee-high socks with shorts?

All Hail the Robe...
Zenith of the Lazy,

To answer the Door,
Or Leave on the Floor..

Whether Lazy or Priest,
May its glory never cease..

All Hail the Robe.

Slovenly is an adjective. A correct usage would be "Slovenly dress". Do you people even English?

Did that for about a month and my work suffered.  Got my shiat together shower and shave every morning, started dressing like I could walk out the door if the house caught on fire.  It really isn't that hard and feeling clean and neat puts me in a better state of mind to work.

When are we going to get praise for self-inflicted hair cuts, because I'm going to be there soon.

/in Florida, where the salons are technically open, but I knew that was a stupid idea when it happened

Don't have to do laundry as much either.

Man, I hate robes. I'm already enough of a slob; I don't need to complete the image while being uncomfortable.

My brother was bone idle and used to spend all day in his bathrobe. I was so repulsed by the whole image that I don't even own one.

I get that. I've always seen my suit as something that puts me in a "work" frame of mind

However, since this all started, work and home have blended more than I would prefer, and I get calls early and late. I shower and shave daily, but I also mostly wear board shorts/bathing suit with flipflops and a t-shirt. Its easier on the laundry, and I'm super comfortable, despite working out of my hot shed in summer (doors open)

I've been working from home for almost six years, so dressing slovenly has been a way of life long before the pandemic.

I'm not dressing like Melania.

/oh it's not slovenianly

You guys still wear clothes?

Yes.

Note before your next Zoom meeting that your computer has a camera.

/I still wear a tie for meetings if a client is on the call

When things go back to "normal" or when I get a job, my dressing gown is going to be incinerated before I drop the ashes in a leadlined box in the middle of the ocean.
It's so immersed in tear stains and hopelessness, its been witness to too many emotions, alcoholic episodes and vomiting, it needs to be put out of its misery.

Too hot for a robe. I just wear the same pair of khaki shorts until they split or the button shoots off while sitting down. Shop for the next size up, repeat.
Sigh.
