The gentleman being recognized for August was chosen because of the unexpected. Mr. Esquire is someone I know well. We have enjoyed countless hours in each other’s company and this most recent adventure stands out amongst them, for what went wrong and then poetically turned itself around.
There is a widely held belief that you can’t appreciate what you have until you try something different. The quest for intimacy will take you all over the map if you let it. In Mr. Esquire’s case, he went farther than he needed to appreciate and realize what was right under his nose. I am proud of him for this self-realization and that is why he deserves to be the Man for August 2016.
