There was a time in my life that I tried to be hip in that clothes that I wore. (Note I didn’t say I was ever actually good at it.) But that was a long time ago. For many years now, I’ve known that I feel most comfortable wearing my work clothes. But the more I thought about it, I realized it wasn’t just any work clothes that did the trick. I had to be wearing jeans, a flannel shirt, a hooded (zippered) sweatshirt, and a baseball hat. I have a few of each that I use as work clothes, so that’s my typical work attire. In fact, I sometimes wear far too many clothes in the summertime and far too few in the wintertime, just to maintain that outfit. Wearing those clothes isn’t just comfortable in a physical sense; doing so makes me feel more at peace. I feel at home. I’ve always attributed that to the fact that I truly like to work outdoors and in the garage, and somehow wearing that type of clothing brings me closer to what I like to do most. But I’ve never really put much thought towards it. Which must be why I never realized something very obvious. The attire that I like the most, the clothing that I would wear each and every day if I could pull that off at my job, is exactly what my dad used to wear in my earliest memories of him. How is it that I never realized this? And what exactly does this mean? I’ve got a feeling that I’m going to be pondering this for some time.
