So this afternoon I had an interview for a clerking position for this semester.
I got all gussied up (actually that's not entirely true... I did not wear lipstick or eyeliner and I did not tease my hair or spend any time in velcro rollers. Hello! I'm trying to look professional here!)
I put on a suit dress and button down shirt (no jacket, everyone at the firm dresses pretty casual), tights, and heels, and got in a cab to head downtown. As I sit in the cab on Lake Shore Drive, I realize that I have a HUGE run up the back of my tights. Awesome.
I semi-panicked for a moment because I didn't have enough time to go home and put on a new pair of tights, and it's not like I could take them off and go bare-legged (bare legs in January in Chicago? Even hookers in Chicago wear tights this time of year!). So I just sucked it up and went in to my interview with a run in my tights.
Luckily my interviewer was wearing jeans and a sweater (told ya it was casual), so it was no big deal.
And, much to the dismay of Legal Diversions, I got the job. I'll be starting on Thursday. Guess you weren't quick enough to "steal" this one away from me.
Snagged tights be damned.
