Tonight should be a pretty fun evening. It is leader placement for East side of Cincinnati Young Life and the theme is the Oscars. We got an email from Gordon, our area director, urging us to dress up for the theme and I, of course, scoffed at the idea. Assuming that other people would get into it so that I wouldn't have to. Talk about Karma.
I get a call from Gordon yesterday while babysitting. He informs me that he urges me personally to dress up since I will be a "presenter." Typical. So, after about 15 minutes of pouting and foreseen embarrassment and discomfort in front of a room of other leaders, I realize that I have the perfect thing to wear.
One of the things that I inherited from my Grandmommy, via my roomate's choosing, was a black faux fur coat lined with hot pink polyester. Molly chose this item because....well, I dont know why, but neither of us have ever even considered wearing it in public. It is totally something that only my Grandmommy could pull off. So, after contemplating putting it in our storage closet on Wednesday night, I will now be the proud wearer of the coat. Since I am also in an air cast that will only fit inside of tennis shoes, I will be wearing a gold tea length dress covered in black silk, THE coat, tall hot pink argile socks, new balance tennis shoes and an air cast. How's that for Oscar's style?
