Another accomplishment…

I decided a few days ago that it might be interesting to buy a bow tie and learn how to tie it. This is one of those urges, like the urge to throw a snowball at someone with a tall hat, that really can’t be resisted very well (at least by me). So I bought one.

Then I looked on the Internet for instructions (not knowing that there were instructions in the box, but heigh ho!). I found lots of instructions. There were diagram instructions, video instructions, picture instructions, even a mirror-image picture instruction so you can look in the mirror and see how to do it without having to move your eyes down to the paper.

I looked at the instructions and started to tie, and failed miserably.

However, all was not lost. Several of the instructions said that some men say: “Tying a bow tie is just like tying your shoes.” but went on to rubbish the statement in favour of their own methods. I thought, “Well, I’ve got nothing to lose.” So I tried to tie it as if I were tying my shoes.

And it worked.

I thought to myself, “Well, you’ve done something new yet again! Another triumph. Have a plum as a reward.”

So I did.

Pictures sometime soon when I actually tie one on a shirt and venture out the door.

I think I’ll be buying more of them in the future.
