Fashion

They turned off the air conditioning at my office last night for repairs, so when I got here early this morning it was quite warm. Since on Fridays no one else comes in until 9:00, I took off my shirt.

I went up front to get water from the cooler, and found myself at the front window, face-to-face with the lung doctor next door. He'd just gotten out of the elevator across from my door.

The bottom half of the front window is fogged. So for all he knows...

This can only improve my reputation.

I wonder if both of you were thinking, "let's never speak of this again." I'm going to be (s)he was.

Reminds me of HS graduation. The principal had to explain to several of the guys exactly why they couldn't wear shorts under their gowns. Personally, I thought it would have been hilarious if they had!

so did someone from the lung doc's office actually see you? you didn't say it clearly in the post.

Awesome. He probably just thought to himself, "Neurologists are weird," and went about the rest of his day.

Oh, he definitely saw me.

You really need to replace the fogged window with a clear one to let people see the whole you.

Don't worry, he probably would take off his shirt too once he stepped in his warm office (assuming you have a central A/C)

It just made me think about those pictures they are posting online everywhere of the Olympic swimmers with the news info around there swim trunks area which makes them look completely naked when they really are not.

Now, why would he leap to that conclusion?

If you really want to pull his chain a little, hire a topless dancer to 'run into him' in the same place under the same conditions. Or get one of your office staff to do it.

Or, if that's a bit much, hire the exotic dancer and let him see her coming and going early in the morning. The possibilities here are endless.

That is AWESOME. ;). Thank you for the mental picture and the laugh!!

Lol. That's hilarious, i'm sure it can only boost your reputation. Thankfully I can say that I haven't had the opportunity to go through the same experience, but who knows what the future will hold. Love the blog!

I have a life rule, it is applicable to many situations and if everyone followed it , the world would be utopian. I follow it assiduously, but it derived from my living close to a jogging path and shirtlessness. JUST (go shirtless, drive 100 mph, have another beer, insert your own) BECAUSE YOU CAN DOES NOT MEAN YOU SHOULD.

So just because you can strip down does not mean you should.
Man boobs are not that interesting.

Ah, the strategically 'fogged' bottom glass- saves the trouble of blurring the video before posting it on YouTube.

(Actually- I've long harbored the idea of developing a line of men & women's swimsuits with fabric patterns of pre-pixelated designs- think of the digital double-takes!)

There was a nude psychiatrist in the news - why not a nude neurologist?

When I was 5-6 yrs old helping Mother hang up the wet laundry out to dry on clotheslines --in the heat and humidity of summer of our home by the ocean, I noticed my father and brothers running around in their swimming trunks and shirtless, and asked my mother if we girls could hang the clothes without shirts and she did not give permission. It was a time in American history when children did not question their parents' authoritative decisions (too much) and were deathly afraid of the boogeyman.

This was truly funny. What if a staff person had decided to come in early, oops. It could have been even worse.

Pulmonologist probably took a deep breath and thought, no he did NOT just do that, or I did not just see that.

Val said...

Nah. He's a lung doctor. He probably doesn't know that anything exists beyond the waist.

for various specious HVAC reasons, we have had our AC AND our heat on in the office most of the summer, but we all kept our shirts on. You need something to soak up the sweat. :(

I do so love your humor.

My. Goodness.

I work in a pharmacy as a Tech and our air conditioning was broken (for the second summer in a row! You'd think a multi-billion dollar company would be able to afford working air conditioning!) So my pharmacist (we are an all female pharmacy) went into the back where there are no cameras and took off her shirt and only wore her smock all day!

After that we all considered just wearing smocks to work instead of real clothes, since they are pretty long! But boss reminded us of all the creepers who would transfer and we junked that idea ASAP.

I'm sure he decided to just erase the event from the history of his mind! Though, it can't be unseen.
