I work in an industry full of geeks- bless them all, but they are straight up nerds. One evening as I was getting ready to leave work, a large meeting was shuffling out with me. A co-worker asked if I’d like to join them for the committee dinner.
Can’t, I said, but thanks. I am going to a concert.
One of the committee members asked kindly, what concert?
Bone Thugs, I said, and hung my head in professional shame.
P.S. The concert was awesome- for the 30 minutes we stayed for it. Because it was midnight. And a school night. And we were drunk. And wearing cardigans at a hip hop concert. And we were ashamed.
