Is it possible that “Dickys” aren’t as popular as I think they are?
My co-worker came into my office today and said, “You look nice in your turtleneck/Halloween sweater combination."
Whereupon I told her, “First of all, stop hitting on me. And secondly, it is still too warm to wear both a turtle neck and sweater. So I am wearing a “Dicky” in lieu of a turtleneck.”
To which she asked, “What is a “Dicky?”
And I was all, like, “Really? Only the greatest invention of our time!”
So for those who have been living under a rock the past, oh I don’t know, like 20 years. A “Dicky” or, “Dickay” as they say it in France, is a shirt with no sleeves or a body, just a collar, or a neck…if we are talking along the lines of turtle necks.
All you ladies who are looking for a great gift for you husband, lover, or significant other…the “Dicky” is the answer for you!
They are cheap, look good in summer or winter. And because they come in a wide variety of colors they make a lovely addition to that tank top or festive Christmas sweater.
So, buy your man a “Dicky” today and he won’t let you forget it the rest of the year.
