Happy Friday, Everyone!
I realize Fridays aren’t quite the Big Deal that they used to be. We used to be able to count on Fridays to lift us up out of the doldrums and to put us in a celebratory mood, even if all we were celebrating was the end of a mundane workweek and the beginning of an equally mundane weekend.
But it was a different kind of mundane, and so worthy of a celebration.
If one has been staring at beige all week long, suddenly ecru can seem like a riotous explosion of color.
Donning a pair of khakis might make a coworker comment, “Whoa! What’s up with the peacock outfit?”
So make your own color this weekend. Wear a Hawaiian print shirt. Wear a pair of chartreuse sneakers. Wear flamingo socks. Put a ribbon in your hair. Wear rose-colored glasses. Give Spring a run for her money!
If ever there was a time to do those things, now is it!
But don’t blame me if you are sent home for a dress-code violation.
