Be the Guy

Michael Brendan Dougherty, Surfeited with Dainties, suggests that one (if more or less male) should (aspire to be) the chap who, among other things,

— doesn’t choose Bud Light – but doesn’t turn it down either;
— goes to a tailor and a thrift store for clothes;
— can discuss politics with deference and passion;
— blogs but doesn’t talk about it at the table,

all of which rules, and more, though not all, I second. Especially that about Bud Light — it embodies what I think is the essence of good manners. Sure thing Bud Light is, well, Bud Light, but I’d rather take a sip than offend you with my refusal.
