I wore this outfit to a law school dinner a few weeks ago. I had a couple of pretty great conversations that night....
The Dean had all the 1st year students over to his house for a BBQ, so while we were waiting in the buffet line (for barbeque) a girl kept asking her friend, "what is that stuff?" while pointing to a dish in the buffet line. She was obviously from the South (Jack Rogers) so I knew she had to know what "that stuff" was. Finally, after a back-and-forth between her and her friend, I had to say, "that's coleslaw!!". I wanted to add a "sweetie", or a "welcome to the south", or "ohhh...you must be book smart" in there.
Second was a girl fresh out of undergrad. We were talking about where we grew up and where we went to school, when I mentioned that I was Dance Ed major at ECU. She thought for a minute and then asked me if I knew someone. I didn't, but asked if that person was a dance major. "Oh no" the girl said..."I think she was in nursing, but she was one of my mom's friends that went to ECU, so I thought you'd know her." I was just going to smile, but I had to say, "Now, you know I'm not your mother's age, right?" As in...I'm sure being in your 50s is great, but I'm not even in my 30s...so let's not mess that up.
On a less confusing note, I also wore this outfit to the temple with my family this past weekend.
What a beautiful morning that was!
I also just "liked" this 9/11 Day Facebook page. The page is encouraging people to perform acts of service and kindness today (and every day), to unite us through positive action. What a great way to honor and pay tribute to the victims of 9/11.
