You've Got To Be Kidding- Part 2 of 3

The next guy was a custom builder; the owner of a construction company. He had a salt and pepper beard and had on jeans and a canvas jacket. He looked like he owned a construction company, until the interior designer of a girlfriend got a hold of him. She got rid of most of his beard; just enough to uncover his rather unattractive mouth. Not all of the beard, of course; he still had a three days growth.

He had on this blue blazer with decorative buttons all over the place, and a fussy little handkerchief poking out of his breast pocket. The topper, however, was the pants; they were bright red.  The girlfriend thought he was gorgeous now; said he looked like an Italian aristocrat. I won’t comment on what I thought he looked like, though I will give him some credit. He did understand that he couldn’t wear that outfit to the lumberyard if he wanted to keep his reputation with the guys. Kind of hard to take a guy in red pants seriously, you know.
