As a single gal in the city, when you leave the house, you never know who you might meet. So, you know, I used to dress accordingly.
In this small town, when you leave the house, you know exactly who you'll run into: everyone you know. Virtually guaranteed. So, you know, I dress accordingly.
Day 10 of my month of gratitude: I am thankful that, on the one day I needed to run some errands and then go right to the gym, and was in fact wearing the rattiest gym clothes I own, I ran into no one. I would not have thought that possible. I went to three stores including Target on a holiday, went to the gym at work, and saw no one I know except my trainer.
