You see aprons give people a "I am totally confident" air and a sense of getting down to business.
One of my favorite and fondest memories of when I came to New York was having dinner with my soul mate at "Mortimers" in the city, the men waiters wore long white aprons and they looked so polished, yet ready to serve. My first American Express Card was used there for my first meal out to celebrate my first job. I felt smart and on my way for adventure with this plastic card like Diane von Furstenberg. All I really wanted was one of those long white aprons to glide effortlessly in my own work. Wearing an apron makes me feel finished. Liken it to my very own lab coat or bib if you will. Perhaps I am tied to my very own apron strings. The strings must be long enough to tie in front and I like to tie them below the waist, ready to seize the day and tackle the next project or meal.
Do tell, do you wear an apron? There are so many types, french maid aprons, cobblers smock, pinafore, butcher's apron. Try one and see how much better you are at your task. Carpe diem!
