Okay, so today, I’m a wolf in woman’s clothing

I had an incredibly splashy coffee mishap at the hotel this morning, rendering my favorite cargo shorts unusable for the day (or forever, from the looks if it). Despite the lather-rinse-repeat treatment, they remain horribly stained and reside soaking wet in my Tumi.

Fortunately, a 24-hour Walgreen’s came to the rescue (well, I went to them to get rescued) with a nice pair of khaki shorts that are comfortable, roomy and just my size.

Unfortunately, they’re for dames, not for dudes. Of course, with my un-tucked Polo, no one can tell the difference.

Well, I can: there’s no zipper. No belt, either, just this handy drawstring, like a bathing suit. Unlike a swimsuit, there’s no "package control" inside, but my tighty-whities see to this nicely.

The zipper thing puzzles me though: there’s a flap like as though there’s a zipper therein, but nothing underneath. The flap, not the shorts.

I get that there doesn’t need to be a zipper (for all the obvious reasons), but it’s a bit unusual from my (grunt) male perspective nonetheless.

About Michael Coates
I am a pragmatic evangelist. The products, services and solutions I write about fulfill real-world expectations and use cases. I stay up-to-date on real products I use and review, and share my thoughts here. I apply the same lens when designing an architecture, product or when writing papers. I am always looking for ways that technology can create or enhance a business opportunity .. not just technology for technology's sake. My CV says: Seasoned technology executive, leveraging years of experience with enterprise and integration architectural patterns, executed with healthy doses of business acumen and pragmatism. That's me. My web site says: Technology innovations provide a myriad of opportunities for businesses. That said, having the "latest and greatest" for its own sake isn't always a recipe for success. Business successes gained through exploiting innovation relies on analysis of how the new features will enhance your business followed by effective implementation. Goals vary far and wide: streamlining operations, improving customer experience, extending brand, and many more. In all cases, you must identify and collect the metrics you can apply to measure your success. Analysis must be holistic and balanced: business and operational needs must be considered when capitalizing on a new technology asset or opportunity.
