"A millionaire...and his wife..."

Over the weekend Andrew mentioned to me that he needed to go buy a sports coat for work. He normally dresses pretty casually for the office but the client for his current project told him he would need to wear a sports coat and no tie for a project meeting on Tuesday. After making snide remarks like, “Did he also say to wear loafers but no socks? Bahahah!” I quit teasing him and asked what kind of sports coat he was getting. He said the guy recommended a navy blue three-button and immediately a vision of Thurston Howell III from Gilligan’s Island popped in my head.
Andrew does a great Thurston Howell impersonation. He can clench his jaw just right and will swirl the ice in his drink saying things like, “So I said, that’s not a boat darling, that’s a dinghy! Har har har!” It cracks me up every time.
So I’m imagining him donning his preppy new blazer, complete with khakis and loafers (no socks) and he could keep me rolling on the floor laughing with his Mr. Howell shtick. Maybe he would even let me embroider a gold nautical-themed patch on the breast pocket.
He came home last night with a gray blazer. It looks very nice on him and does nothing to conjure up any Gilligan’s Island incarnations. Which was a little disappointing.
On a side note – did you know there’s a drink called the Thurston Howell? I must try it sometime.
