Is there a difference between a shawl and a wrap? Now I’m kind of thinking maybe I won’t ply my singles and instead work them up into something I can throw over my shoulders at work.
Tonight I am doing the thing you would hope a person who publishes with Third Man would get to do, even though I’m feeling very anxious about it. I have work in the morning! I hate crowds. I don’t know what to wear.
But you get asked to shit like this, you say yes, or what if you don’t get asked again?
I devote a lot of energy in my grown-up life figuring out how to give myself permission to say yes to things I think are cool and no to things I don’t want to do.
Anyway, I’m excited.
Coming into work bleary-eyed because you have been at a cool thing the night before is fine; just be sure to make a general announcement that you are bleary-eyed because you were at a cool thing the night before and everyone will whisper about you jealously. Lean against the wall with a drink (doesn’t have to be alcoholic) and smile to yourself and the crowds will either ignore you or think you are cool and come up to introduce themselves to you; then they won’t be a crowd, they’ll be people who want to meet you. Wear comfortable shoes.
All shawls are wraps, but not all wraps are shawls.
