Today was yet another strange day in Naughty Kitty’s dull dull life. I woke us as usual and went to put my contact lenses in like I do every day. My eye burned so badly. It was like someone put soap in the cleaner or something. I immediately removed the contact lenses, washed my hands and tried again. It hurt even more this time! I cried out loud it hurt so badly. So now you are saying, “Kitty, what the hell is your point?”
Well, my point is that I ended up having to wear my glasses as opposed to my contacts. It was dress down Friday today so I just threw on a pair of jeans and a comfy flannel shirt and went to work. I figured I wouldn’t be seeing anybody except friends including Big Cheese so I really was not ready for the STIR that my NERDY look made at the office.
First of all without thinking twice I stopped in to say “good morning” to XXX. Right away he brightened up and said “SEXY TEACHER…WOW!” At that point I became a little self conscious. JEEZ-US! I wasn’t even TRYING!!
Next person I saw was my Little Latino Helper who gave me the once over, running his eyes up and down my body. He insisted on buying me a coffee today. It was at this point that I was like “WTF?!?!” I mean I didn’t REALLY look THAT different and who the hell knew that all these guys go for the “Nerdy Kitty with glasses” look. Personally I think it’s the combination of the glasses and my crazy curly brown hair but I continued about my day. Sure enough Big Cheese said “I LOVE you in glasses!” To which my reply was a smart ass, “because they cover my face?” He smiled of course.
The last straw was the cute attorney from down the hall who followed me around like a puppy dog all morning. Now don’t get me wrong I love the attention but in light of my turning over a new leaf…Oh let’s face it…I am just busy as hell at work and have no time for idle chit chat especially about my appearance which I am constantly self conscious about anyway.
And so, when the work day ended I was happy just to go home where the people who know me best barely notice what I am wearing and what I look like. Yes, it’s sad in a way but some days a Naughty Kitty just wants to be nerdy and blend into the woodwork. Today happened to be one of those days.
