To socialize or talk informally preferably over a drink. Word forms: 3rd person singular present tense hobnobs, present participle hobnobbing, past tense, past participle hobnobbed.
But honestly. Hobnob is a safe space for women who prefer iced coffee over a perfectly curated wardrobe. It’s a daycare center for women who are intrigued by trends, but also don’t care. It is an open bar for those who swear on vintage Chanel and whose pension funds hang in their closets.
Let’s face it. Tracksuits and yoga pants were fun in April. Now, 6 months later I am ready for something else. I may not be able to do physical meetings and dates, but I can try making myself feel better by dressing as I could.
Travel by mind with me, imagine you, at home with your computer and all your colleagues on link, wearing something else than stretchy lycra. I know!!! it’s hard to imagine, I feel the same way.
But just for fun. Bring out your best suit. Steam up your rollnecks. Comb your hair. And pretend that today you have an important lunch meeting at a good restaurant and an after-work scheduled with friends.
Some day this will be reality again. But until then, let’s try to trick ourselves into feeling better by dressing up for each other and ourselves. Even if it’s just going to be visible through a screen.
