ASK DR. BOLI.

Dear Dr. Boli: I am about to start a new job at a company whose dress code is described as “business casual.” What does “business casual” mean, and how do I dress that way? —Sincerely, Millicent K. Warble, Soon to Be Vice President in Charge of Drippings, Chunk-O-Beef Restaurants, Inc.

Dear Madam: The mere fact that two words can be printed side by side does not mean that the resulting phrase actually signifies something. As far as Dr. Boli can see, the phrase “business casual” has no more meaning than the phrase “toucan volcano.”
