Please Forgive Me and Still Love Me and Hug Me and Call Me George

We have to talk. Sit down. I have to tell you the truth. I am so sorry. Please forgive me. But I have not been completely honest with you. I know. I know. If this relationship is not built on trust and openness than where can we go? If we cannot be frank and share the burdens of our soul than how can we continue on this path of togetherness? I agree. I have sinned. Please forgive me for I know not what I do.
But now I must rid myself of these evil demons within. I must cleanse my soul of the dirty little secret that resides within me.

Does this outfit look familiar? This was me...today. I wore it. Why? Why, you ask?
You wanna know why? Cause the whole "what if I might get an interview" thing was a cover up. I could not bare to tell you the truth. I was afraid I might fall flat on my face and then I could not look at you and share the disappointment and shame.

But I really did have an interview. I know. I know. I lied. I hide my face in shame.

I went in at 9 am this morning. Ya know that company that I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to work for? Ya know the one that has had my dream job posted for 6 weeks and 5 days...approximately. Cause I was not counting or anything. Really. I wasn't.

I walked in the doors at 9 am. And FIVE HOURS later I emerged after a team interview, a NYC headquarters interview, lunch with the Regional VP, and an appointment with the company VP at the airport next week. He is flying in from NYC to meet me and all. Cause he reads my blog. And wants an autograph. I kid. I kid.

I totally peed my pants on the way out to the car. Now I need new shoes.

Can you find it in your hearts to forgive me?

Yay!! Congrats!! I'm sending positive, "hire me" vibes your way!! Good luck!
P.S. You look tres professional in that suit! If the interview was based on wardrobe alone, you'd have a slam dunk on your hands :)
