As it turns out, I am tired of looking bland and comfortable (though I’m certainly not tired of feeling comfortable), and I have found that the That’s What I Do I Drink Bourbon And I Know Things Shirt moreover I love this best way to have my cake and eat it too, via Zoom, is to accessorize with a few special, webcam-ready bits that will give the illusion of a thoughtful, sophisticated ensemble without having to ditch my cozy basics.
