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 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.
