Yesterday afternoon a friend of mine asked me how to tie a bow tie. Since I didn’t have a bow tie with me, I couldn’t show him, and it isn’t the sort of thing you can express very well in words alone. We went on youtube and found this instructional video. We wound up watching it three times, mainly because we were fascinated by the expression on the face of the man around whose neck the knot is being made.
As I was getting dressed this morning, I chose a bowtie. I tried to tie it as this video recommends, since this is clearly superior to the way I have been using. Muscle memory defeated me- I kept starting it the new way, then switching in mid-move back to my old way, and ending up with at most half a knot. I’ll have to train myself to get in the habit of doing it right.
