I was in a big meeting today with a bunch of marketers, wearing a fairly short skirt, and when I stood up there was a line of butt sweat on the chair visible for EVERYONE to see. Dying of embarassment right now.
Once I period bled a tonne all over a nice fabric chair at a new friend's house. It was the first time we'd been over and it was a group gathering and I was somehow totally unaware (I'd just had an IUD inserted), and I got up and everyone stared at it but no one said anything. After the other guests left (Jay and I waited outside in the car) I shamefully went back to apologize and it was pretty damn embarrassing.
Anyway this week--yesterday I was pouring at an event that I thought was going to be pretty casual. Our winery is on a farm and Halifax is a messy pit of slush so I was wearing muddy rubber boots. I walk in to set up and this is some fancy shiitake. All heels and suits and a live quartet. Luckily I had shoes in my car that I tried to wash the mud off in the bathroom (there was no where else to do it and no clean snow outside!) and I got some pretty disgusted looks. Also I got so many tattoo glares yesterday. The wine industry here is incredibly stuffy. The beer and cider events are totally different--loud music, tattoos, long beards, very casual clothes. I can't forget to switch industries for events!
Note to self: keep both cider and wine clothes in the company vehicle just in case.
