soooooooo hypothetically, say you got up early (!) and went to the gym before work (!!) to run a nice little 2.5 miles (!!!!), right? and hypothetically, your gym is on the way to work, so you brought your work clothes with you so you could shower at the gym and continue on your merry way. except, hypothetically, after you've showered and gotten dressed, you realize that the black shoes you were supposed to bring, to go with your black dress pants, are not in your gym bag. and going back home through tysons corner (should you, hypothetically, live on the other side of tysons from where your gym is) and retrieving the appropriate shoes would tack on a minimum of 40 additional minutes to your commute. your hypothetical options are now:
a) show up to work in black dress pants and brown boots that happen to be in your car
b) show up to work in black dress pants and bright white sneakers
for the record, i chose a). hypothetically, i mean.
