How do you solve a problem like Maria?

Have you ever arrived at work and realized you accidentally dressed like a nun? That is happening to me. Right now.

I'm expecting the Von Trapps to show up and escort me from the office any minute now.

Have you ever arrived at work and realized that your pants were a good two inches too short? Well, have you?!

God you make me giggle!!!!!

Oh c'mon, you looked like the cutest nun ever then. I loved that outfit.

The outfit description that you gave me over the phone made me shudder. Get yourself together. For the child's sake.

Hmmm, let me guess. It was a black and white outfit, with perhaps a white scarf that resembled a wimple? Chunky black shoes? Did you bobby-pin on a chapel veil or a piece of kleenex? Or was it a post- Vatican II nun with a powder blue skirt (elastic waist, of course) and blue button-up jacket? In either case, a classic look. Right on, sister.

I put on my first autumn sweater only to discover -- and yes, a bit too late -- that I looked like a big green afghan with boobs. Nice.
