After SH has taken a shower before going out to a smokey bar that will make his clothes reek of cigarettes.
SH: It's important to be clean to put on stinky clothes.*
Me: Why bother to shower at all to go to the bar?
SH: It feels better to be clean.
Me: Then why not shower in the morning and be clean all day long?
SH: That's not important.
* He wears the same smokey jeans and t-shirt a few times in a row.
