“He’s got a pair of reddish-tan shorts, a Brooks Brothers oxford shirt with a worn collar, freshly laundered... Everything is slightly worn, a little faded but tidy.

You can tell his wife or girlfriend. She looks just like him, with breasts.”

A conclusion of this really entertaining piece is, "The boat you own tells the world more about you than you may wish the world to know."
