1. Dropping my kids off for an activity, I met the mother of one of my kid's friends.
  2. The conversation was going just fine.
  3. She was nice. It was a pleasant moment.
  4. Then I suddenly became hyper aware of the fact that my shirt had one too many buttons undone.
  5. I had become something I dreaded becoming, "Dude showing too much chest hair."
  6. I never wanted to be that guy. I am NOT that guy!
  7. It was a stumble. A mistake. A singular instance of an undone button blunder. Honest.
  8. Quick! Someone get me a hoodie!
  9. The winter "cover up" is suddenly in demand.
