Al Pacino Cosplay

Rather than our usual Wednesday morning construction meeting with six or seven co-workers and our CEO, this morning we were hosting a big seminar attended by about two dozen other CEOs. I may be old fashioned (okay, for the record, on some things I’m not, but on many things I am the poster child for old fashioned) but given the crowd I knew would be there, I figured the Director of Finance (i.e., me) shouldn’t be in cargo shorts and flip flops.

Instead I was wearing my blue pinstripe $1,000 suit (another long story) and a bright red shirt with a red, white, and blue tie. It was like I was either going to be interviewed on Fox News or I was doing my best cosplay of Al Pacino in “The Devil’s Advocate.”
The saddest part of the entire day was that, no matter how many times I used that Al Pacino cosplay line to people who were wondering why I was in a suit (people! people! people! it’s not that big of a deal!) not one of them gave any indication that they had gotten the reference.
Kids these days!

  1. I admit I don’t get it either, but then I’ve never been much of a Pacino follower. But it does sound like the complaint from two of our quiz teams who say all we ask about is history. I think we ask mainly general knowledge. It seems that anything rooted in the 20th Century is now history, and not of interest.
    We were never like that, I’m sure!

    Just don’t use the line “In my day…..”
