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.
