Last night it was 3:30 am and I hadn’t been able to sleep yet, so I just decided to get my work laptop and start working. I worked until oh, 11:30, when I needed to have an urgent video conference with my coworker Benjamin.
Frankly I am astonished this hasn’t happened before today. Here I am looking all professional.
NO zoom background masking the fact I am propped up in bed.
NO attention paid to hair or eyebrows.
NO attempt even to put on a heavy denim shirt to stay braless but modest.
”Benjamin,” I said, “You are a gentleman. I have just realized I am in my pajamas and you have said nothing.”
He was gracious and demurred in some way and we moved on. I just stayed in my pajamas: the damage was done.
Oh dear. That's really quite a look. But I am glad it did not happen in a meeting with someone who has Perfect Eyebrows.

KC - Benjamin was in a t-shirt, I believe, thankfully.

Most excellent all around. This captures the entirely of my current COVID-19 attitude. Benjamin is a prince.

Lynn - I just read the Ms magazine Facebook post about how we shouldn’t be expected to wear makeup. Now that the floodgate has been broken, I have found I’m not checking the hairstyle on the back of my head or even trying to switch out the shirts. Same shirt, different day.
