Seminarian's dinner tonight with our guy with the Big Hat (some folks call it a mitre). PH and I are going - he skipped last year's but understands he has to show up occasionally for these quasi-political events.
So the question du jour is this, argued furiously among several of my classmates when I posed it in ethics this morning: do I wear my lovely and comfortable purple dress? Would that seem too much like I'm angling for a big hat myself, or making fun of his purple shirt or something? Enquiring minds want to know! Somehow I don't think he would feel threatened by a Coldwater Creek stretchy purple schmatta (bought on sale for eighteen bucks), but who knows?
