Jazzy Red Stripe Reappears

This is the little sister of last night's tie: midnight blue but with a jazzy red stripe. Whereas the Tie Which Shall No Longer Be Reviewed And Is Now Dead To Me has overstayed its welcome (a la the Mark Twain fish and visitors rule), this little number hasn't been seen since March 29th. That zippy red evokes verboten things like trying on tester lipsticks in the drugstore or sneaking a gummy bear from the bag of bulk candy before you weigh it, or grabbing and eating strawberries from the plants as you pick your own at the roadside farm. I'm not in love with this tie, and I could easily hold it in mild disdain should it appear in heavy rotation, but that red; it saves it.
