The Thing About Love - Julie James

I don't think I've ever encountered a character who's so sassy with such a limited sense of humor.


"You're wearing jeans.  Those sophisticates on your squad would have your badge if they saw this."


Ah, good.  He was annoying her already.


Context - she usually dresses to the nines, and has been annoyed that he isn't always dressed to exact professional dress code (ie. a bit scruffy b/c he was at crazy intense training for a few weeks and needed to shave, lack of a tie at the office).


I'm sorry, but 99% of the population is likely to make a light teasing remark when they see someone who always dresses in a strict fashion regime (say super formal wear) presenting in a very opposite one (in this case casual, though same thing often goes the other way as well).
