Snapshot: The Tie

the courage to present it directly to me. It is a
bright aquamarine accented with small flecks of
emerald green. Briefly I imagine the remarkable
things it would do to his eyes before firmly reminding
myself that it is far too flashy to be appropriate
I turn, prepared to give a veiled lecture on the
impropriety of blue ties, to find him gazing at me in
innocent appeal. He smiles hopefully and I nearly
melt. For a moment I cannot bear the thought of
chiding him, not when he looks at me in such a sweet,
pleading way. My baser instincts inform me that if he
must wear an inappropriate tie, aquamarine is the
color to choose. I nearly let the matter drop without
comment and let him have his way, when I see the glint
of humor shining in his eyes.
I have been set up.
He deliberately purchased that tie to see my reaction.
Knowing what the thought of him in that color would
do to me. I instantly school my features into my most
severe look of disapproval. It would not do to
disappoint him. I make it clear that the tie is not
to be worn in public.
In private, however, is an altogether different story.
