“I talked to Writer the other day,” Neighbor told Transman. (To understand who Writer and Neighbor are, click here.)
“Yeah?” Transman said. “How is he?”
“Good, I guess,” Neighbor said, and discreetly used his spit cup. “He asked about you.”
“Yeah?” (Transman is famous for his conversational skill.)
“Yeah, he asked how, y’know, things were going with you. I told him you dress a lot better as a guy. You used to have that hippie vibe and now you’re all in suits and keep your hair high and tight.”
Transman ran his hand through his hair, suddenly self conscious about his newfound dandyism.
Son 2 chose that moment to run up and jump on Transman. Son 2 filched the pocket square out of his Transdaddy’s suit and ran off screaming something about pirates.
Neighbor spat again and looked at Transman, his eyes twinkling.
“Well, I have to dress professionally at work now,” Transman said, making an excuse for his attention to detail.
Neighbor nodded and grinned, obviously fighting the urge to laugh.
How do you get that good looking?
A day in the life of Dandy Mr. Transman
starring Cary Grant
Transman starts every day with a short workout.
Then, he takes a shower and shaves.
He contemplates what to wear …
Transman drinks his coffee and steadies himself for the day.
Transman gets into his very fuel-efficient ride and rushes to work.
While at work, he finds ways to avoid looming deadlines …
Sometimes, he goes out to lunch and pretends to be urbane.
In the evening, he goes home and …
Spends time with his family,
Spends time with the family pet.
But, mostly, he sits around looking good.
Looking damn good.
