I wore overalls once, but I feel that if I wore them again, it would be disingenuous. Farmers wear overalls; I am not a farmer. I never was a farmer. But when I wore overalls once, I thought, just maybe, someday I would be a farmer, but not a farmer per se, but anything, including a farmer. I am old and no longer think that. Although there are many people I know, older than myself, who wake up and think they are farmers. They wear sweatshirts and comfortable trousers and do very little during the day. Sometimes they go to the movies, or sometimes they buy melons at the store. Some of them were farmers, some of them were not. Some of them say: Some day I will be a farmer. Most of them do not.
