Today is a fun day for messing with people.
I'm a pretty clean-cut guy by nature of my position at BigHugeCorp. But today, I'm unshaven, hair unkempt, wearing work jeans and an untucked button down. People have stopped in the hall, stared in the stairwell, told me I look like I just got out of bed, and asked if I'm "okay".
Not that the point was to mess with people. I actually had two things going on today.
- I had a meeting with my agent, where one of the topics was what the more relaxed look for my new headshots should be (this).
- There's a lead for an indie short for which I hope to audition, and this is how I see the guy.
Side benefit is I get to mess with people...
