Keeping Up Appearances

In a perfect world everything would look exactly how it’s “supposed to” and we’d be the living definition of Utopia. Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on how you look at it, the world isn’t perfect so there’s a lot of situations that appear suspect when left to outside interpretation. Because of this we often play the part of dressing up our lives so they appear “storybook” on the surface. I guess this works for most people in the sense that it keeps the chinks in their armour from those who would possibly exploit them to their advantage, or help someone save face from an onslaught of I Told You So’s. But when prettying up the store window takes precedence over making sure your store is properly inventoried and organized, your setting yourself up for bankruptcy of the highest order.
