Last week, I made a late New Year’s Resolution for this blog.
Today, I’m going to make an even later Resolution: To wear a necktie — at least on Mondays, when I go to Muscatine Rotary meetings.
Anyone who knows me knows I don’t like ties and for what seem to be fairly obvious reasons. But I was wearing one today at my first Rotary meeting as an official member of the club. And a table mate commented that I looked better than normal and should wear a tie more often.
Since most of the men in this club wear jackets and ties, I guess I’ve decided to join them. At least I’ll join them on Mondays. And even then, the tie may not last much beyond 1 p.m. when the meetings are over.
But it’s a start, I guess.

I equate the tie with a noose. At your job. Im lucky to have the freedom not to wear one. And there are germs to think about for MDs…
I have a fair amount of freedom. I really don’t have to wear a tie. But I think I’ll choose to wear them on Mondays.
You could serve as an advertisement/role model for those MCSA residents hoping to find a “good” job (as opposed to doctor? :-)) in which they need to dress “professionally.”
And, trust me, Dr. Maharry, neckties are far more comfortable than bras, control-top pantyhose, and high heels! 🙂
Lori is so right! I would choose a tie over pantyhose or bra any day.
