On That Huf­fer Hus­tle

Fan­cy 1920s dress code sit­u­a­tions.

Quite unsur­pris­ing­ly, with my skin­ny 12 year old appear­ance, I’ve always grav­i­tat­ed towards sweat­shirts and any­thing bag­gy. The strict high school uni­form regime and fear of rep­ri­mand still lingers every time I but­ton a shirt up to my Adam’s apple. So imag­ine my slight sense of dread when I dis­cov­er the par­ty dress code involves a fan­cy 1920s sit­u­a­tion. Quite obliv­i­ous to the prop­er eti­quette of dress­ing up, I fig­ured the white sneak­ers were the per­fect rem­e­dy to pre-empt­ing ques­tions of whether I was dress­ing up for a wed­ding or a week­end night out in the row­di­est part of Syd­ney. But alas, my instincts ulti­mate­ly placed my feet in a pair of new der­bies, which I stu­pid­ly spilled too much alco­hol on [slow audi­ence clap]. Let’s be thank­ful sto­ries from that night are beyond the scope of this site.

No over­shar­ing will be done today.
