Dressed to Kill, In My Own Mind

“Your kids can say some cruel things to you at times. For example,
Nicole, Miles and Sofie are standing there in the room and
I’m dressed to kill in my own mind.
They’ll say to me,
‘Dad, you’re not going out there looking like that are you?’
If that doesn’t kill a star, I don’t know what does!”
