You shouldn't ask a question if you're not prepared to accept the answer. I have (not) learnt this the hard way with my husband. Most mornings when I get dressed, I'm pretty excited to take pictures, I turn to him with silly pride and ask "What do you think of my outfit?" Most of the time he mercifully just says "Yup, fine." It's not the resounding enthusiasm I'm hoping for, but I take what I get. But every now and then he offers an observation. When I put together this outfit and asked for his input he said "You look like an art teacher." Now the comment itself is not that bad, I mean I loved all my art teachers, but I know what Chris means when he says "Art Teacher". Not flattering. Kind of kooky. Maybe the kind of person with liberal attitudes towards armpit hair, and so on. Anyway, once I've committed to the outfit, I've committed, so I wasn't changing and we headed out to take some pics. Don't worry, I sent him to dentention later.
