Flashing the Audience

I’m playing the role of “speaker” at an Analytics conference next week and need to find just the right costume.  

(One that convinces the audience that I know what I'm talking about.)

As you would expect, I have a variety of nerd tops to chose from:

But I’ve been told that the speakers' dress code is “business professional”. 

Oh.  Excuse me. 

The audience will be a bunch of nerds!  I think they would appreciate my nerd wear.

OMG. That skirt completely ruined my adorable nerd shirt.  I tried another combination:

For crying out loud!  

My add-subtract-multiply-divide shirt looks SO MUCH BETTER WITH JEANS than that pencil skirt! 

I finally gave up and found a non-nerdy business professional "costume" in my closet.


I really wanted to wear nerd gear.

Then I had an epiphany.  I can still wear my nerd gear.  And when the analytic fashion police aren't watching?

I can flash the audience!
