My Harvard University Choir reunion starts the day after tomorrow, and I’m still me! I thought surely by now I would by Heidi Klum, but since that didn’t happen….
I must look hotter, younger, thinner, and more fashionable than I am. Keep in mind that all the other women who are going are also trying to look hotter, younger, thinner and more fashionable than they are, so I need to look EVEN MORE hot, young, thin and fashionable–without looking like I’m trying too hard. That is the kiss of death.
I have two things going for me:
1. I was a hot mess fashion disaster in college. I will win most improved so long as I put on something that actually fits. Or isn’t home-sewn. Or was manufactured in this decade.
2. I’m thinner now than I was in college. Woohoo! I’m no skinny minny–yet!–but having broken up with the cafeteria chickwiches and chocolate milk, I’m in a better place now.
So I need to look pulled together for
a) a rehearsal
b) a dinner at the, erm, illustrious Sheraton
c) performance in church, i.e. dress
d) sing-through and mingling.
I have never been to a reunion before. If anyone with or without experience in these matters would like to chime in with suggestions, I would be most grateful. I’m thinking mainly dressed up jeans, right?
