Most times, while picking out an outfit for the day, I dress with style in mind. However sometimes, considering what the day's activities may bring, I dress solely for comfort. On this particular day, comfort was my main priority.
On occasion, my job will ask me to speak on a local AM Radio show about gardening. At first this used to make me very anxious. I would worry about things like sounding unintelligent, my voice cracking, or even bouts of hysterical Tourette Syndrome. Please keep in mind I have never experienced anything as serious as Tourette Syndrome. I also don't mean to make light of this affliction, but wouldn't that be horrible while on the air?
In addition, as a person interested in fashion, I often found myself worrying about the way I looked before a show. It has taken a few years for me to actually realize, it's radio nobody knows what you look like! Surprisingly, there is something almost liberating about this concept. Don't get me wrong, I will always be a visually minded person. As a former art major in college, I don't think there is any other way I can be. Yet despite this, I cannot deny the luxury of presenting myself to the public, "incognito." So I have learned to dress for comfort on these occasions. In reality I may be wearing a plain sweatshirt and scarf, but on the radio I always strive to sound like I'm in a suit and pearls.
