Brings to mind a time several years ago when I had an impromptu phone interview for a telephonic case management job. I had been cleaning out my car in the driveway when she called, so I was a little hot and bothered already. On top of that, my cell phone connection was horrid (this was before wifi calling was commonplace) so I did the interview while pacing in my driveway and in front of my house trying to find a "sweet spot." I apologized profusely and tried to present myself well, but I think it was a lost cause at that point It worked out for the best anyhow, as I ended up on a completely different career path.
You sound like someone who can roll with whatever gets thrown at you! I was cracking up at the mental image of you coming out in a towel to a surprise greeting by your son and husband
