I feel like the Wizard of Oz

When the curtain was pulled back.

My dear housemate has a big meeting out of town, and I spent the afternoon pulling things together to help him make a good impression.

Combing Goodwill for snazzy clothes, ironing, packing and giving him instructions of what to wear, when.

"Don't wear the wool, homemade socks with your suit!"

"Don't wear your giant pullover under your with your suit!"

"Don't wear the glasses that are super-glued together!"

The wool thing was a tough sell, this is a man that wears a sweater in July, and wears bulky wool socks, hand knit by his elderly mother, year round.

By the time it was time for him to leave, I think he looked pretty presentable.
