Below is the original First Kiss romance art from the 1960s. You can tell the guy is a writer (a poet actually) because he’s wearing an ascot tie.
All writers wear ascots because…we can. As soon as I get dressed in the morning (which is usually about 2 p.m.), I put on an ascot.
Sometimes I wear a shirt and pants. But—always an ascot!
WOMAN: Smells good to me!
