You Look Just Fine mailbag

Dear YLJF,

Today, while running errands, the grocery store cashier mentioned that I looked "comfortable." Is this a euphemism for looking sloppy or unkempt?

Dear Mort,

Of course not! This is the 21st century--comfort is the greatest goal of fashion. Or are you still wearing a girdle and white gloves when not running errands? Perhaps you have not been to church lately either. If shorts and flip-flops are good enough for God, they are good enough for the Piggly-Wiggily. Lighten up.
