A nerdy hooker?

Hoochie mama 80’s hooker shoes?

At work this past week, we were allowed to have a little fun.  Here is the story of my attempted participation.

Monday — Crazy Sock Day.  I forgot.
PARTICIPATION SCORE: 0

Tuesday — Wear Pink Day (for breast cancer awareness).  Tuesday morning I surveyed the closet and did find an acceptable pink top.  I paired that with some little worn pink earrings.  I was kind of surprised to discover that I don’t have much pink in my wardrobe.
PARTICIPATION SCORE: 7

Wednesday — Nerd Day.  Wednesday morning I surveyed the closet and didn’t find anything particularly “nerdy,” so I settled on a short-sleeved button down, and buttoned it all the way up to my neck.  No one at work could even tell.  Was this “nerdy” attire that close to my everyday wear?
PARTICIPATION SCORE: 3

Thursday — Retro Day (70’s/80’s).  Thursday morning I surveyed the closet and nothing really stood out except for this top that has always reminded me of “Flashdance” <oh, how I’ve always loved off-the-shoulder tops. really!>.  So I wore the Flashdance top paired with a plain black skirt, shiny clog like heals, pink dangly earrings, all-the-way blue eyeliner and blue eyeshadow, and sort of big, teased hair.  No one at work could even tell.  I was told by one friend coworker I looked like an 80’s hooker.  At one point during the day, I was asked if I wanted to be in a group picture.  No, that’s okay, I don’t want someone to be looking at the picture years later and ask who’s the hooker?  Is my everyday wear actually nerdy hooker??  Also, I’m wondering what my son’s daycare thought when I came strolling in there Thursday morning/afternoon for drop-off/pick-up.
PARTICIPATION SCORE: 5

Friday — Jersey Day (wear a favorite team hat/jersey/shirt).  This one was easy.  I couldn’t mess this one up.  I wore an NFL team t-shirt paired with jeans and cowboy boots.  Nothing says Texas football like cowboy boots.  Nerdy hooker, my ass.
PARTICIPATION SCORE: 8

AVERAGE PARTICIPATION SCORE: 5

I’m thinking I’ll skip next year’s dress up week unless I get to be the one in charge of the daily themes.

Monday — The 5 Years Ago Style Day
Tuesday — Sneaker and T-shirt Day
Wednesday — No Makeup Day
Thursday — Bedhead Day
Friday — Holy Jeans Day

I believe my plan is much more doable.

    1. Then I believe I would have more items for my embarrassing list. And I fulfilled the list of 3 requirements with the whole “incontinence” post, remember? 🙂

    1. Hmm… looks like I should have made it two words (bed head) or at least hyphenated it (bed-head). But anyway, I found the following definition on the internet (of course!): Hair messed up and untidy after sleep. So for “bed head” day, no fixing–or even combing!–one’s hair. 🙂

  1. You get double points for picking the kid up at daycare 🙂 loved this post!!!! I recommend ‘previous job uniform’ for next year 🙂

    1. Ooo.. that’s a good idea. Like waitress uniform or Blockbuster uniform? I’d have to go waaayyyy back and I’m pretty sure my cool Fuddrucker’s visor hat is long gone. 🙂

  2. What exactly are Holy jeans… were they blessed or simply survived an apocolypse? Can the dog anoint them and then they count as Holy? 😉 And no, you do not normally look like a nerdy hooker LOL…

  3. I saw your link back to this post and had to check it out. I’ve lived a fairly sheltered life and wasn’t sure exactly what being a nerdy hooker entailed. It actually sounds like a lot of fun. 🙂
