First Date

Dear Jeepers,
"I'm going on a blind date (apple picking in Ithaca) this weekend with a friend's cousin. He's a Lutheran minister. What should I wear to an apple orchard with a minister?

I'm glad you wrote. Wear a long hoodie, down to mid thigh, over well-worn, not-too-tight jeans. Flat brown shoes, preferably boots.

uh, you have to wear sneakers to go apple pickings and why are you going out with a minister. bad idea. ditch the date and that BVM* hoodie and head to the city in a leather minnie. that's my advice, but then I'm not jeepers....

Lizriz, you caught jeepers veering toward the overdressed again, as is my wont. True, sneakers may be more appropriate. (But I can't help but imagine a slippery situation when rubber meets apple slime on the ground. Isn't this just the situation for which boots were DREAMED UP in the first place, agriculture?) Anyhoo, a touch of the Early Church Christian saint can't hurt any girl's look, I say.

If I were going on a blind date with a Lutheran minister to an apple orchard, I would wear nothing at all, except perhaps the small accessory of a plucked red apple. Ummmm....maybe also a pair of snakeskin stilettos.

If I were going ona blind date to an apple orchard with a minister, I'd wear a black suit with a pencil skirt.

Dear "Notyourmommabutclose,"

Your fashion suggestion would work well for Wall Street or a funeral. But picking apples?!

LOSE THE minister. pick apples and make hard cider with a long haired sensitive from Oregon. The best are grown there.

Now girls, hush! Our poor Lutheran minister is weeping quietly behind that apple tree over yonder. What are you, a bunch of Unitarians?

Dear Notyourmommabutclose,

I beg to differ! The best apples, as everyone knows, are grown in Washington, not Oregon. And I'm sorry about the weeping minister. He should get a grip.

Jeepers, if the Luteran minister is weeping, and behind a tree no less, why would anyone, especially Jeepers! want to date the poor bastard? Not the kind of sensitivity desired. I'd rather he weep over your beauty and promise to make you his religion. And I think emphasis should be on POOR.

Please be kind to the man....he is in pain because his date has run off to Oregon in stilettos and a pencil thin black skirt for the *best* apples.

I have an idea. go with the jeans, wear a turtle neck (probally black) and wear comferable shoes, it's not like hes staring at your feet.
