Most formalities are weird.
I am anti-formality. I am pro sweat pants.
Sweatpants are not just mere clothing. Sweatpants represent a state of mind, an ideology, a way of life.
Formalities are weird, doesn’t mean they’re unnecessary, does it?
It’s like that unecessary amount of time you spend (formally) brushing your teeth so you can (informally) chat without slaying others. Or like that (formal and strenuous) activity of making your bed so you can (leisurely & informally) lie on it.
Most formalities are weird. But without them, sweatpants won’t be all that.
