It's quitting time on any given day. What are you sipping on?

Tell us, Mindy, what makes you feel dapper?
Pulling together a total lewk -- the details. From head to toe there is a story being told. Sock and shoe, trouser and boxer, shirt/vest/blazer and bow, pocket chain and lapel pin – they are each paragraphs in the chapter of the novel. When I show up dressed to the 11’s (because the nines are not quite bold enough) people know to expect the unexpected. That is dapper.
