A couple of things went through my head. Actually, several. First was, "What? I'm not in New York?!" and the other one, "So, you moonlight as a weather forecaster now? But of course, being the gentleman that I am, I told her the truth. "I'm feeling under the weather." And it was chilly that night. I had the perfect excuse.
You know what else redeemed me in that situation? I was wearing my Jack Purcells. If I was wearing Uggs or worse, ski boots, then I could've given her the permission to shoot me right on the hed. But I wasn't. Converse has always been my go-to-brand of sneakers if I want to dress down an otherwise dressy outfit. Think a tuxedo + a black low-top Chucks. Classic and I must say, iconic eh?
