Out of Office Reply.

Dear Caprilee,

I just arrived at work and realized I have cat hair all over the front of my navy cashmere sweater! I don't have a lint roller with me, what do I do?



Dear Patricia,

Didn't you get the memo?


Scotch tape. Your office is bound to have a roll stashed away somewhere. Rip off a strip, apply to the hairier parts of your sweater and rip off. Apply. Rip. Repeat...until hairless. It's much like waxing, but far less painful.

This is a handy trick I picked up on my own one day when I spent a little too much time cuddling my pup before work, and it's proven just as valuable as using a matchbook to file my nails in a pinch. Besides, what do you think women did back in the 50's before they even invented lint rollers?

Just try to be a little inconspicuous. I wouldn't recommend faux waxing your chest in the middle of a board meeting.

That would be tape tacky.
