What I Wore to Work Today: Tuesday, September 25, 2012
Pants: Goodwill, $1 Thursday
I have never been a morning person. As a teenager and in college people would say to me, “Oh, when you’re older you won’t be able to sleep late anymore, getting up early for work every day will tune your body clock and you’ll be lucky if you can sleep past 8:00.” This statement has not yet come true. I am 30 years old and have been working an office job for over 7 years. The best I can offer is that I rarely sleep until 2 p.m. anymore, and that once in awhile I do in fact naturally wake up on the weekend at 10:00, depending on what time I went to bed the night before and if I’m being asked, “Hey, are you still sleeping…? Do you want to get breakfast, like, pretty soon…?”
On Monday night I went out with a couple friends to see Atmosphere and a two opening acts also from the Minneapolis label Rhymesayers. Minnesota hip-hop represent!
Tuesday morning was even tougher than usual and I grabbed a tshirt and pants that I could wear with socks — my feet were tender from standing at the show on the sloped concrete floor. It was a two-coffee morning.
