A 'Girlie' Girl...

Wednesday, November 20, 2013

Last week I went to a Phi Theta Kappa induction. My friend asked that I go and represent (mentor) her at the ceremony. So, I'm all dolled up and dressed to the nines! I go and show support to my friend...

After the ceremony... My instructor who I have conversations with after every class, comes up to us and tries to excuse her. I tell my instructor it's fine, and call he by her last name. She shocked that I know her name and questions who I am. I tell her my name and explain I got all 'girlie' for my friend's ceremony tonight. The instructor says, "No, really who are you?" We go through this exchange about 3 times of her asking me who I am and I tell her who I am... Last time she asks, I get out my driver's license to prove I really am me.

[laughing, even in writing this blog.]

The instructor comes up to me yesterday before class starts and apologizes for not recognizing me. I accept the apology and forgive her memory laps. She says and I quote, "When you get dressed up, with your hair done and make up on, you look extremely different. I was taken aback that my thug-ish student who always dresses in jeans, a t-shirt, and a bandanna, could pull off a professional lady look is beyond me. You were stunning when you took the time out to make an impression. I can see why Shay likes you for a friend." (Shay is the woman who invited me to her PTK ceremony and my friend.)

I guess I need to get dolled up more often... lol. I just love being the tomboy type of girl instead of a girlie girl. lol.

    I have to say I love being a girlie girl- there are not too many girlie girl therapists at work who are straight as well so I get tons of compliments from the men- even at my enormous size- so the positive reinforcement is amazing especially since I haven't gotten any at home in 20 yrs! emoticon

    I think it's great to have multiple "looks". We also act differently depending on how we look. That's why costume parties are such fun. You get to be somebody else.
Sounds like you were more "sophisticated lady" than "girlie girl". Maybe next time.
