Day 283: Parrot, Fish, Elephant

How to Tie A Bow Tie.

How to Tie A Bow Tie.

My wife and I attended a black-and-white party celebrating our friends’ company’s 10-year anniversary. They’re a real estate and mortgage firm that threw a successful soiree tonight, which is not how I would describe my bow-tying skills.

I’ve only become a fan of the bow tie over the last year or so. I don’t wear them often, but I’ve grown to like the look.

I spent a good 45 minutes trying to figure it out before tonight’s party. I was getting frustrated and no amount of pictures or youtube videos could get me to tie the bow tie correctly.

Thankfully, I’m married to a saint. She took one quick look at the video and showed me what I was doing wrong.

We were late to the party, but my bow-tie adventure was worth it because I’ll never forget how to tie it again. Watch the video below and repeat after me: Parrot, fish, elephant.
