I am going to an event later this afternoon at which it is necessary for me to speak at a podium and look eminently presentable (plus, later on is my weekly date night with the SU, for which I also make an effort to look like I do not spend all day running errands and schlepping my children from place to place). I am currently miles away from my "presentable" goal, as evidenced by the fact that I am now sporting a quite depressing sweats-and-ponytail ensemble.
First step, of course, is to shower and wash my hair. Unfortunately, there are 3 painters in my house right now working on a project. They are all quite nice, but I don't know that I want to, you know, take a shower while 3 strange men are hanging about.
What to do? This is the only one hour timeslot in which I can get cleaned up.
Oh, frickin' frackin' freaky...
