Q. What is Dave wearing?
A. Inspired by the meat dress that Lady GaGa wore to some event last year (was it the MTV Video Music Awards or the Annual Conference of the National Association of Junior Leagues?), David is wearing a three-piece suit made entirely out of pancakes. The outfit is mostly a sartorial success. Dave, however, wishes he had made the underpants out of syrup.
Q. What kind of mood is Dave in?
A. Dave wishes he were in a subjunctive mood.
Q. What are the factors affecting Dave's mood?
A. Although Dave is a man, lives in an area best known for service and tourism industry, and prefers to avoid conflict or mediate difficult situations, he is very disappointed that no one has yet told him today that he's a "steeltown girl on a Friday night, looking for the fight of her life." He can only assume that this is because it is Thursday.
Q. Why doesn't Dave take things seriously?
A. Dave is taking things seriously.
