the sweating began as i started getting ready for church yesterday morning.
i wore this. that's right. green tafetta.* not the greatest fabric OR color when you know you get the nervous sweats. but my roommate said it made my eyes pop (in a good way), so i HAD to wear it.
just walking from closet to bathroom to bedroom and back again in the daily ritual hunt for my keys/lippy stuff/sunglasses/coat/scarf/purse/phone/violin/shoulder rest/music/etc/etc/etc was apparently too much for my system and, well...
maybe it's cool on a rockstar, but when you're supposed to play a rather difficult (for me) solo arrangement of mannheim steamroller's "silent night" in front of a couple hundred people and you're the last number before the bishop's christmas address, pit stains are not ok.
so i did what any girl would do. i put pantyliners** in my armpits.
worked like a charm.
merry christmas everyone!
*i have since been informed that this color is chartreuse. i always wondered what color that was. and now i know. and you do, too.
**apparently pantyliners with wings work even better. thanks, k!
