With the ebola outbreak going on it is amazing to me that my job finally decided to take some proactive steps. So we created a proactive plan decrease the likilihood of an incidence of ebola in Oklahoma. We put forth a strategic response plan. However, I find that the state governments are alot like the federal government in that they close the barn doors after the cattle are out. So work with other state agencies and my boss asked to go up to Wichita on Monday to present on our measures. I asked what time the meeting was she advised 8:30AM
I was like, heah can I teleconference in, he stated we want to there so I the advised that it took 2 hours to get there from my house. So I would have to be up by 4:30 to leave the house by 6:30. He asked how long it takes me to get ready I told him about 1 hour. He asked me how long it would take back when I was still wearing pants to work. I advised I would shave and shower the night before so it took like 20 minutes to get ready.
I was unsure what the weather was going to do. So while I wore a knee length wrap dress I brought a skirt and blouse with me. The wind was gusting like crazy at 6:00 AM as I was leaving. The wind was cod as ice on my legs when though I was wearing tights I was still freezing. On my way up I stopped for gas, it was a Phillips 66 station going in the clerk was kind she was like you must be freezing I assured her I was. She asked me where I was going I told her about my meeting in Wichita and bought a cup of coffee some gas and away I went.
I got up to the location where they are having the meeting right at 8AM which means I was glad the meeting was starting till 8:30. I went in a few of the folks already knew me and my wardrobe change this year a few more were surprised by it. We chatted alittle bit they asked me if I was going to change my genders I was pretty sure not at this time I was happy with me. But now I got to be happy while wearing a dress.
