"Suit up, show up and act as if."Otherwise known as "fake it till you make it" (not that kind of faking! you dirty bird). So I did. I suited up (jeans, t-shirt, jacket that would make Stacey & Clinton proud), showed up (after driving around for 10 minutes trying to figure out where to park downtown), and acted as if (I just started making convo with the bartender and then the women). And y'know what? Nothing bad happened. No one laughed at me. They laughed WITH me. It was cool. I'm glad I went.
Lulu was kind of sad that I left her at home and spent most of the day moping in one of her favorite spots.
