DH is a gov't attorney. He's arguing a case (an appeal) before our Supreme Court this morning. And today is the first day that the cases will be filmed and simul-cast on the internet, and then everything will be kept in a law library (sort of like a digital version of cases and suits and stuff).
Since so many colleagues said they'd watch him, DH was VERY careful in selecting his ensemble. He always wears a button-down shirt and tie, either dark chinos or khakis, and a jacket - they need to be ready to go to court at any moment.
So today, he was taking out shirts and ties and looking at every combo with his pants and the blue blazer and back and forth, and oh what belt and shoes if he's with khakis it's gotta be brown and on and on.
He has some film experience, so he settled on a robin's egg blue shirt, matching tie (silver and blue and pale green), khakis, blue jacket.
But he was just SO funny!!!!!! This is the man who usually wears what he calls "pre-stained" clothing, who looks like he took a nap in his clothes, who is just the other side of the line between neat and sloppy. So to watch him race around and try to look his best just tickled me.
