Chapter 58: The Wiseman | My Southern Gothic Life

New post up on my other blog, My Southern Gothic Life.  Here is an excerpt and a link to the full post and blog:

We’re going to get really heavy Southern Gothic here.  Just give me time to get there….

Let me start by saying, after 20 years in a Corporate office, I started working from home a couple of weeks ago.  I’m going to like it, but it’s a big change.

I sometimes go days without leaving the house, or at least the neighborhood.  I’ve gone from wearing about $500 worth of Brooks Brothers business casual clothes and Cole Hahn shoes every day  to working every day  in $35 North Face shorts and $4.99 Target T- Shirts.  And $100 Ecco Flip Flops.  I have to maintain some standards.  I only shave every other day to  pay my penance.  It’s quite the adjustment.

I probably didn’t need to put on the Corporate drag so heavily when I had an office, but I was raised to believe “Image is everything.”

Somehow, through all this, I’ve lately been thinking of my late Uncle Wiseman.
