Four Secrets and an Unbelievable Photo

First things first: Can you believe there are still places in the world where this happens? And this one is in my beloved Kenya. The above photo is from last March. It shows modern-day Maasai "warriors" engaged in a hillside battle with bows and arrows against a rival tribe following divisive elections in the region. Bows and arrows.

Secondly, I have four work secrets. It's time they see the light of day.

Work secret #1: Every day I am wearing a secret under my dress pants. Here is a clue:
Yes, folks, the answer is leggings. I ride the freezing train, I wear wide-leg work pants, thus, I don a secret extra layer for warmth.

Work Secret #2: Once a week I venture over to La Madeleine for a petite caesar. I have to walk through two skybridges over downtown to get there. If I am alone in the skybridge, and if I am wearing sassy heels that day, my mind gets imaginative, and I pretend I am...
This week I am strutting to "if you like it then you should've put a ring on it, woa oh oh...".

Work Secret #3: The elevators in our building have mirrored doors. If I am ever alone in an elevator for the looong trip downstairs to the lobby, you better believe I am pretending to be...
On occasion, in addition to Christmas carols and Kelly Clarkson, you may also find me performing Sing moves in the mirrored doors:)

Work Secret #4: There is one activity that is a near-daily requirement for professionalism in the corporate world. My secret: I simply refuse. I have not done this activity one time since the night before I started working last July. Can you guess?
Yep, that's right. I do. not. iron. I find many creative ways to avoid wrinkles, such as hanging shirts in the shower and smoothing them out with my hand while still damp.

Ahhhhh, that's better. Secrets are out in the open.
