A Handsome Guide to Leisure Time

A good-natured romp through the bungalows of Thailand, a soothing steam shower in the natural swamps of Madagascar, or a relaxing Punch cigar on top of the snowy white mountains of Peru; these are the retreats every leisurely gentlemen aspires to enjoy. But how does one determine leisure from work? One man may consider tending his sweet garden of rosemary and arugula a "day off" if you will, but another man might find this task to be the most taxing of them all. So how does one determine leisure from work?

Let's examine the arugula garden; ask yourself would an immigrant do this type of work? If you answered "yes" then you are correct thus making garden activities WORK and not leisure. How about lying on a hammock? Sure any lazy Spaniard would lie on his hammock, but he's never worked a day in his life so a refined gentlemen like yourself can damn well sure call lying in a hammock leisure. However let's be frank for just one moment, this is a rather boorish activity after all. A classy and sophisticated gentlemen like yourself should never be caught in a hammock or even a modern-day "moon bounce".

The goal is to live the life of a dandy and when I refer to dandism do not consider this an insult to your masculinity. Our culture would have you believe dandies are in essence big queers, but they are the original sophisticate (A.K.A an O.S) and practically invented our fun, refined and don't forget handsome leisure culture.

I would like to hear HMW expound on the classic "fop"; that is, a dandy wannabe and witless twat who not only lounges in a moon bounce but wears banana hammocks, even when not engaging in sport.
