Interesting responses I have heard from others in the last week:
Ugh, shouldn't have worn flip-flops. I feel under-dressed. "But, you're an artist!!"
Too much caffeine. Need wine. Can't have wine, it's 2 in the afternoon. "But, you're an artist!!"
Actually, I have a lot of work to do tomorrow. "But, you're an artist!!"
All in one week.
This led me to consider all the possibilities. I wonder what other "quirks" I can start blaming on being an artist. I say, everything.
