I don't know if this is a difference between men and women, or just a difference between Nick and me. Or maybe I'm just really frivolous.
Nick is going to a conference this week.
He hadn't mentioned anything about it before, but we were talking about our schedules for the week. He said he's out of town for a couple days, and then when he comes back, he's got this conference the next morning.
And actually, he says, he's a panelist for one presentation and a moderator for the next.
"Are you ready? Have you worked out your presentations?"
"Yup. Submitted all the materials yesterday."
He's organized like that. I really admire it. Me, I'd fret about them for ages, but not really work on them till midnight the night before.
So, knowing he was comfortable and prepared, my mind turned to the next important thing: his outfit.
He has suits I think are really attractive and suits I think are less so. And he's really not a clothing person. In my mind I'm hoping he's planning to wear the grey herringbone suit. He looks so handsome in it.
"What are you going to wear?"
"What are you planning to wear?"
"I hadn't thought about it."
"Really. That's what you want to know about my presentations?"
"What else would I ask?"
"You might ask what they're about."
