But things just got a bit lighter. This is hilarious... I just bumped into Ann, the VP who is presenting RIGHT before me this afternoon. She and I are wearing very similar dresses & shoes, and EXACTLY the same color sweater. We look like twins! She has to introduce me. So we're going to make a joke out of it. Now I'm actually quite excited.
Follow up: the presentation went well, but I never could have predicted what happened. FOUR of us were wearing nearly the exact same black-and-white patterned dresses, and bright orange cardigans!!! So we had a lot of fun with it, although I'm pretty sure the audience thought that we dressed alike on purpose. Apparently it's the new senior manager costume. I just crashed their party. ;)
