Dear hive brain, I skinned my knee and it looks kind of nasty. Is wearing an above-the-knee skirt to work okay with a skinned knee, or should I wear pants for a couple of weeks?
Wear pants for a couple of weeks to hide it.
Skirts are fine, it's a badge of honor.
I have a different answer which I will clarify in the comments.
[Clarification: I use liquid bandaids, so it'll be covered, but I'm wondering if it'll look disgusting to co-workers.]
