Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For April 2020

Spring is now in full swing … and, before you know it, the month of April will be here.  Then, in just a few weeks, I will be celebrating my 34th birthday.  Just don’t ask me how I’ll be celebrating it just yet.  Fears of the Coronavirus may cause me to celebrate it at home; however, you will have to answer a question about my birthday plans in a blog post in April.

Now, today, I’m going to tell you about some of the blog posts that I’ll be writing down in April.  I will give you guys some fantastic posts throughout April … and I hope you guys can check out at least one of these posts whenever you can.

One of my blog posts will be entitled “Brady Has Been With Us For One Year Now!”  Brady first came to our house on March 30, 2019.  It seems like he first came to our house yesterday.  He’s a fantastic dog … and I will talk about his first year with us in a blog post on March 30th.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Happy 3rd Birthday, Ezra!”  Ezra is the son of my cousin, Sarah Smith, and Tim Smith, who is Mr. Classy’s “stand-in.”  I will wish Ezra a happy birthday in a blog post in April.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Jay Papuga Is A Very Classy Friend Of Mine.”  I will talk about my friend, Jay Papuga, in a blog post in April.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “I still have my grey and black Puma jacket two years later!”  I will talk about my grey and black Puma jacket in a blog post in April.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Blog Post Number 1,350 Is About A Classy Jacket!”  In my 1,350th blog post, I will talk about one of my jackets.  I can’t tell you which jacket it will be about, but I’ll give you a hint.  It won’t be about my grey and black Puma jacket.  I will actually talk about it in one of the blog posts that I just mentioned before.  It will be about a jacket that’s just as classy as that Puma jacket is.

I will also be using my blog’s features in April.  Let me tell you how I’ll be using them this time…

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For March 2020

The month of March is almost here … and Spring will officially be here in just a matter of weeks.  Today, I’m going to tell you about the blog posts that I’ll be writing down in March.  I already wrote one of these posts down yesterday, but, of course, I hope you will check it out in March anyway.  See if you can guess which one it is before you read this post any further.  I’ll give you the answer in the middle of this post.

At some point in March, I will write my 1,325th blog post … and it will be entitled “Joseph’s 1,325th Blog Post Is About A Classy Shirt!”  I can’t tell you which shirt I’ll be talking about yet.  I can assure you … the shirt that I’ll be talking about in that blog post will be a classy one.  I will give you a hint.  It will be about one of my polo shirts.

Another one of my blog posts is going to be entitled “Derek Papakie Turns 30 Today!”  I wrote this blog post down yesterday, but, of course, I hope you will check it out in March anyway.  In case you haven’t seen it yet, let me tell you what it will be about.  In the post, I wished my cousin and friend, Derek Papakie, a happy 30th birthday.  Derek is a terrific person.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Joseph Puts ‘The Classy Test’ To The Test.”  Now, I will be talking about “The Classy Test” in the blog post … and I will ask you guys questions that are in this test.  Now, I first talked about it in a blog post last March … and I figured I should talk about it again.  I will probably ask myself these questions in the post as well.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Joseph Still Has A Classy Chaps Button-Down Shirt One Year Later!”  I will talk about my plaid long-sleeve Chaps button-down shirt in a blog post in March.  The shirt is very classy, to say the least.

I will also use my blog’s features in March.  Let me tell you how I’ll be using them this time.

Derek Papakie Turns 30 Today!

Today, I would like to wish my cousin, Derek Papakie, a happy 30th birthday.  Derek is one of the classiest people I have ever known.  He is both a fantastic friend and a terrific cousin … and he has been a terrific father since last July.

Now, in the first half of the 2010s, Derek and I were “twinning” a lot.  We would wear matching T-shirts, matching jackets, matching sandals, matching sports jerseys, matching hats and even matching polo shirts.

So, today, I would like to say “happy 30th birthday” to Derek Papakie.  Happy 30th birthday, Derek!

My friend, Shane Trylko, Is Full Of Class!

In March of 2014, I was able to become a true friend of Shane Trylko’s.  Before that, we may have been cousins or something like that, but for nearly six years now, we have been both cousins and friends.  I was able to bump into him in person in 2014 at least twice.  I bumped into him here at my house in March of 2014 … and then, five months later, I bumped into him again at my uncle’s 50th birthday party.  That would be Nicholas Papakie, Jr., of course.

Now, whenever I first became Shane’s friend in March of 2014, I was able to give him a rather classy jacket.  I had purchased this jacket at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx a few days earlier … and it was the subject of one of my first blog posts ever.  I wrote it back in September of 2014.  Now, that jacket would be the green and yellow Brasil jacket.  I also bought that jacket for myself … and, whenever Shane visited us at my home, I gave him his jacket … and he liked it as much as I do.  The green and yellow Brasil jackets became our “friendship jackets” since we were both terrific friends.

After I left Fella’s Barber Shop in McDonald on Thursday morning, I was able to bump into Shane there.  I had just finished getting my haircut whenever I bumped into Shane.  It was the first time that I had seen Shane in person since August of 2014.  He is a very classy friend indeed.

The Origins Of “Mr. Classy”

For the past three years now, I have been able to call myself “Mr. Classy” whenever I would wear the grey Michael Kors jacket or the black leather jacket, which is from Vintage Leather.  Like yours truly, “Mr. Classy” is an introvert also.  He likes to be alone after being out and about for hours at a time.

Well, anyway, let me tell you how I cam up with “Mr. Classy” as my current nickname.  In 2015, one of my friends, whose name is Jeff Mooney, worked with me at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx … and he would sometimes call himself “Mr. Grey.”  It was sort of named after a character in the movie “Fifty Shades Of Grey.”  That’s sort of the reason why I chose “Mr. Classy” as my current nickname.  It happened just days after I bought my grey Michael Kors jacket at T.J. Maxx.  I like the jacket so much, I wanted to create an alter ego based around the jacket.  I didn’t call myself “Mr. Classy” right away.  As we were about to start the year 2016 together, I put on the jacket, I said I was “Mr. Classy” and “Mr. Classy” was born.

These pictures of “Mr. Classy” appeared in my blog posts throughout 2018.

These pictures of “Mr. Classy” appeared on my blog throughout 2017.

These pictures of “Mr. Classy” appeared on my blog throughout 2016.

In December of 2015, I snapped these photos right after I purchased the grey Michael Kors jacket.  I wouldn’t start calling myself “Mr. Classy” until the beginning of 2016.

“Mr. Classy” has had a lot of fun over the past three years … and he has had two “stand-ins” in those three years.  The “stand-ins” have also worn the grey MK jackets.  Jonathan Reed was Mr. Classy’s original “stand-in” … and Tim Smith is his current “stand-in.”

“‘Mr. Classy’ and his ‘stand-ins” all say, ‘see you all later!'”

Thank you for allowing me to become “Mr. Classy” for the past three years.

I will be giving my computer a break from 7:00 this evening until 5:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 2nd.  I will try to give you some terrific blog posts while I give my computer a break over the next week.  Enjoy your day!

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around this date in previous years …

Happy 4th Birthday, Scarlett!

Today, I would like to wish my cousin, Scarlett, a happy fourth birthday.  She is one of the classiest cousins I have ever known.  We had a party for her at AMF Mt. Lebanon Lanes, which is located in Mt. Lebanon, on Sunday afternoon.  I really enjoyed myself at this event.
