Need quick advice: Shorts or jeans for my day in New York City today?

Post by gHost Spartan on Thu May 18, 2017 8:58 am

Quick, I'm hopping on the 10:30 a.m. train!!!

Okay, here's the deal: I'm meeting a friend for lunch today in New York City then heading to midtown to catch Guardians of the Galaxy, then meeting my old girlfriend in Hoboken for drinks. Here's the catch: it's going to be 90 degrees today!!! WTF????

I'm torn: should I throw on some shorts just to be comfortable but look like an idiot when I'm in Hobo mixing it up during Thursday night happy hour, or just grin and bear and go with the jeans all day? Sure, I'll probably have swamp ass but I was planning on bringing some baby wipes with me anyway and I can wipe my ass while at the movies before I go out for drinks.

What do you guys think?

I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

I saw a drunken driver ran over a bunch of people in Times Square and killed one. I was hoping they would mention if the deceased was wearing shorts or jeans but to no avail. I guess we dont even know if gHost was anywhere near TS. I was in NYC once and it's pretty big so there's a good chance he wasn't near the scene.

You should just wear a kilt so he can freely grab your nuts whenever he wants to.

Good to see you're OK gHost.  Now the real questions are what did you end up wearing and was your old girlfriend still DTF?

I decided to go with the shorts.

prAna Brion shorts:

I wore my prAna sunset shirt during the day:

Then changed into this Arc'Teryx shirt for happy hour:

And I was wearing my On trail runners:

The Gap was sold out of almost all sizes of cargo shorts. See that, Turtleneck? Still very popular. Also for sale were some shorts with pineapples stitched on. I didn't buy any because my membership in the Lake Lansing Yacht Club has lapsed. But pineapple! The Gap is telling Turtleneck to go fuck himself.
