The world is a stage and each one of us has a role. This is one of the first things I learned in our sociology class when I was a sophomore. It was based on Merton’s Functionality theory.
This morning before I picked up Karen for our lunch at Cow King, I pulled out my slacks, long sleeved shirts and polo shirts from my closet. It’s like resurrecting my old Tanauan Insitute “costumes”, the ones that I wore back in 1997. (For those of you who don’t know, I worked as a school administrator after graduating from college.)
I asked Paul if it’s OK to wear my usual shirt and rubber shoes to work, and what he said was basically “no”. According to him, it’s OK to wear jeans to work, but the shirt and sneakers is definitely pushing it. And with that I say hello again to my old friends Marks & Spencer, Dockers, Cole Haan and Bass. And while I’m at it, call me Mr. Corpy.
