Bow Tie Mania

How’s this for peer pressure? Each the boys decided they would wear a bow tie for Christmas church. “C’mon Dad! You can wear one, too!” I’d never worn one before. But I agreed. Nathan said, It’s easy! Really? It took 45 minutes following instructions and several attempts for me to learn to tie it right.

The funny part is, at church, there was a teenager who had been given a bow tie from a girl for Christmas, and as I walked by, the mother said, Brother Cragun knows how, go ask him! I’d practiced enough I was able to tie his bow tie.

Post script: 8 Jan 2011. I wore the bow tie again today. This time I tied it in 3 minutes. So I think I’ve got a new life skill.
