How Should I Dress?

Dear Nurse Ruth

This is not your usual kind of question, but I hope you can help me anyway. I have a big event to go to, and I’m not sure how to dress. Normally for this sort of thing I would be wearing a top hat and tails, but I have heard that some of the other people going will be wearing kilts. I love wearing tails, but I’ve never worn a kilt and they do look like fun. What do you think?


Dear M,

My advice is go for the kilt. It seems like you really want to wear one, and it has the added advantage that you can keep some chocolate biscuits in the sporran in case you get peckish.
