I mentioned to my coworkers that I was trying to decide between the blue or the gray suit. One of them said I should definitely wear the blue because with my accent I might get dirty looks wearing gray (though my suit is darker than Confederate gray, it was funny nonetheless). So the blue suit it is, though I am going to wear the blue shirt with checkered tie instead of the white shirt and the striped tie. Hopefully, I will look nice enough to impress tonight. For the ceremony we are attending (it’s actually work and not all play), I will be seated at the front with other special guests. I’m not sure who the special guests will be other than me, one of my colleagues, and the wife of the speaker, but there will be two tables for special guests and I assume my colleague and I will be at the same table, at least I hope we will be. At least we aren’t being seated at the head table.
Because I will be working late into the night tonight, I won’t be going in until 1pm, so I do get to sleep late and I will have more time to get ready. I’ll take my suit with me and change once the museum closes for the day. We will have about an hour to get ready and then be at the parade grounds for the beginning of the ceremony. I’ll have my equipment set up as soon as I go in today to record the interviews and then all should be set. Wish me luck and let’s hope that everything goes well.
