Question of the Day

Courtesy of Zobmondo's Would You Rather...?

I'm just going to have to get this game, because I find these questions so much fun! Here's the question:

Would You Rather... Be stuck in a small plane with bad turbulence for 2 hours or… be a passenger in a car racing in the Daytona 500?

That's actually an easy one for me. While I'm not crazy about turbulence, it doesn't totally freak me out. I think that after two hours, I'd be getting fairly uneasy, but the alternative? A passenger in a Daytona 500 car?

Please. I own a Mustang. I like to go fast. I would LOVE to get out on a track like that. A while back, they had Kristi Lee from the Bob & Tom Show ride with someone at the Indianapolis Speedway. It was so funny, because after they stopped, she was almost hysterical with laughter, glee, and excitement. She was ready to go again. That would be me.

Yep--easy one!

An easy one for me. I'm a white knuckle flyer and I used to race cars.

Race car for sure! I've done the turbulence option- don’t care for it.

My two cents worth regarding dress standards. I facilitate a work shop for college work experience students that deals with attire, grooming, body language, and other aspects of how your appearance may play a role in their job search process. There is quite a bit of research that supports the theory that appearance and behavior are linked. Casual dress tends to encourage casual attitude and action. Our style of dress and those we interact with certainly affects the nature of that interaction. Of course, it doesn't mean that someone that looks sloppy does sloppy work, but if that is someone's perception, it will color their attitude towards that individual. We all come with our own package of ideas, attitudes and experiences that create the basis for our expectations of how people should look in various situations. So, while we shouldn't judge a book by its cover, there is a reason why huge amounts of money are spent on packaging design (and book jackets).  The "right" look sells. I encourage my students to be aware of this and to practice “situational style”- dress for the role for which you are “auditioning”. Also, they should be aware of the judgments they automatically make about others when they meet someone for the first time- it works both ways. It’s important to realize that our judgments based on appearance are not always accurate- but it is a reality we all deal with. It’s human nature.

On a personal note, my husband looks sensational in a tux. Hubba hubba!

I dated a guy who dragged raced ("No, I don't approve of it" she says, "Now that I'm much older and wiser")....but there is nothing like that thrill, is there...

As an addendum to the last comment I made: Another thing I noticed is kids today don't dress up for job interviews either. I had to teach my daughter the finer points of dressing up to present yourself for a job. She was bitchy about it, saying none of her friends do....Maybe not, but if you want the job you better impress the hell out of them and that includes your dress etiquette. (Hugs) Indigo
