Remoter Confessionals

I Was Caught Working Without Pants On

“It was cold and I was feeling lazy, so I just rolled out of bed (bringing my down comforter with me) and started working. By 2 p.m. I still hadn’t washed my face or put on pants. It was then that my neighbor dropped by with holiday treats. My front door has a big window, so she could see me, waved, and walked in. I chatted with her from my desk, but I could tell she was bothered by the fact that I hadn’t gotten up from my desk to say hello or give her a hug. Finally, I had to admit that I didn’t have any pants on. She was really sweet about it, but I was embarrassed to be a grown woman caught at 2 p.m. with no pants on. From now on she always texts before she drops by. “
