As I looked through my closet, I couldn’t find anything to wear. It was all either to slutty, or inappropriate in some other way. “damn it” I said. I had to pick something. There was no time to go buy a dress. I had to meet my husband at his work event in two hours. I still had to do my hair and makeup.
We had just moved to this town when my husband’s job transferred him here. We had been living here for about a month. I still hadn’t really made any friends yet and I hadn’t met any of his colleagues. I wanted them to like me, to think that my husband makes good decisions.
I am nothing like my husband, I love tattoos, piercings and own more tshirts and pjs than anyone I’ve ever met. The only dresses I have show off way to much of my cleavage, which is why I got them. “Oh no, Sherman what am I going to do?” I asked my dog for advice. I thought about calling my best friend but she lives in Europe and it is the middle of the night there. I didn’t really wanna ask either of my other best friends because they have similar styles to me.
Confused and annoyed I remembered something.
In the very back of my closet was the dress that I wore to my rehearsal dinner. It was proper and respectable and I also kind of liked it. I decided to flip my septum up into my nose so they wouldn’t notice and grabbed a nice jacket with a little edge to cover my arms, so they wouldn’t know I was tattooed.
With the outfit on I finished getting ready. My make up game was on point that day so I was done with that in a flash. I had my hair done in a bun so I didn’t really have to worry about that, I wore it in a bun because I think I look better that way.
I had some time to spare before I had to leave so I sat at my computer and did some work. I got so distracted that I lost track of time and ended up being late, despite my good intentions. By the time I got there most of the people were drunk and didn’t care about anything. I had worked this event up in my head and there was really nothing to worry about.
Next time I will know better.
