I was asked to go to a business dinner with two colleagues and two clients and I said yes. It’s one of those fundraiser “dos” where your company buys a table of 10, and there is a silent auction to raise money for charity, and hopefully enjoy a nice dinner. This one is where you take your spouse. (not typical for me and my husband to attend these, but I figured what the heck)
I got the tickets, didn’t look at them, and threw them on the counter when I got home.
My husband asks me Thursday if I knew it was a black tie affair. I did not. And I have NEVER gone to a black tie affair, don’t really know what to wear, and am VERY sure I do not have anything appropriate.
So tomorrow, instead of relaxing as planned and spending time doing all the things I don’t get to during the week, I will be out in the morning like a mad person looking for an outfit to wear to this dinner that is tomorrow night.
Please wish me luck, and remind me that I can survive this.
