Three vignettes from yesterday.
Since I’m still working from home, I had on my “uniform” yesterday of jersey shorts and a tank top. I threw on a nicer top for a client call and never took it off. At noon, YA and I drove down to Walgreens to get our drive-thru covid tests (since we’d been to the fair so many times). When I got into the car, YA looked me over and said “you’re not wearing THAT, are you?” I replied that since I wasn’t getting out of the car and the Walgreens technician would only see the top 1/3 of me, yes. YA rolled her eyes.
On the way home (both tests negative, by the way), as I was waiting at an intersection to turn right, a man with his two white/cream golden retrievers was standing on the corner until the “walk” light came on. The dogs were gorgeous, so I rolled down the window and called to him that his dog were beautiful. He said thanks; I turned right and drove on. “MOOOOOMMM” said YA.
I purchased a thing-a-ma-gig at the fair that makes it easy to put my hair in a bun. I’ve been playing with it and when I got home I put my hair up, making the bun pretty high on my head. Then I had a client call. A bit later YA came into my studio. “Did you have your hair like that during your call?” I replied yes and she responded “It was already bad enough that you’re wearing that shirt” and then she proceeded to show me a picture of an anime character (see above) and although she didn’t say it directly, the implication was that I look like Zeniba.
So I’m three for three in embarrassing my child in one day. Not sure I can best that record without seriously trying.
Tell me what cartoon character you look like? Or would LIKE to look like?
