Heavage is Back

On the evening of September 20, 1975, I wore a powder blue leisure suit, with open shirt, to my Bar Mitzvah party.  I didn't think I'd ever have to do that again.  So imagine my distress then when I read an article in the Wall Street Journal last week that "male heavage" is back.   The first line of the article says it all. 

"Man cleavage -- plunging necklines slit open to reveal chest hair, pectoral muscles, maybe more -- is back."

Aaaagh!  Do we really need to go there again?!  Didn't we suffer enough the first time around?  I think I'll be sitting this one out.


  1. I think you should redeem yourself. You looked like a junior John Travolta 'wanna be' back then. Not much hair or muscles to speak of either. Now may be the time for you.

  2. Thank you, Mr. (or Mrs.) Anonymous, for your kind comment. But for the record, I had quite a bit of hair back then. You are correct though about the muscles. Problem is - that hasn't changed. So with little hair and muscles, now is definitely not the time.
