You said this was a black tie event. But look at these folks! Shorts, sandals, mohawks! I am distinctly overdressed!
It’s not my fault. The invitation said come as you are, so I just assumed . . .
Assumed? That is exactly what you are not good at! I feel so embarrassed.
Embarrassed, why? With or without a tux, you are nothing to crow about!
Now that’s just insulting!
