Getting to Know You... or Keep Your Head Down in the Elevator
This morning, as I was standing on the elevator that was going down (to get me a hot cup of coffee in the deli), it stopped, opened up, and an older gentleman walked on, took a look at me, grimaced, and then stood in the corner.

Now that was a self-esteem booster if ever I needed one.

And I looked down at myself to see what was the matter - and I see nothin'. Just wearing the regular brown turtleneck with the denim jeans and heels today.

I searched all over for the stain, looked at my hair in the mirror - just the same-o, same-o.

What was that look all about?

Oh well, I got this in my in-box today and because I'm so terribly busy ineffective at work this morning, I decided to take part.
