How do I look?

Before I head to work in the morning, I always ask Other, “How do I look?” The other day, he said, “Why do you always ask me that? You always look great.” And he’s right, in a way. He always says, “You look great.” But often there’s an “if.” “You look great—if you like pants that look like a table cloth.” “You look great—if you like clown shoes.” “You look great—if you don’t mind looking like a copy editor.” That’s why I always ask him before I head to work in the morning, “How do I look?”
