Her well-intentioned friend gave her a lovely and expensive silk scarf. “It’s time to learn how to properly accessorize,” the friend said. “You’re a mature professional now!”
And with that, the friend also handed her a 127-page book entitled, How to tie a scarf – 33 styles – who even knew such a thing existed ?? She flipped all the pages, and quickly surmised the title was actually just code for “how to hide yourself in pricey and pretentious business attire when you hate all of your upper body parts.”
Good grief. So much time and effort.
She didn’t feel prepared to age as a professional woman, with all the hair dying and makeup and now… the layers of fabric camouflage. It was exhausting even thinking about all the nap time she was going to be giving up for this shit.
