I Got Dressed In The Dark: Part II

Yes, folks - I will admit it... I have, yet again, worn two different shoes. When was the last time? October 15th - check it out. No one can be that unobservant. OK, well, maybe one or two people that I know, but really - are they that bad? Probably not. I even put together this outfit last night when the lights were on, so that really says something about me, doesn't it? I was talking to one of our security guards this morning and I wanted to show her my Christmas socks (you know - 'cause they're oh-so-cute-and-festive) and when I lifted up the cuffs of my pants and looked down I was suddenly hit by the sight of one shoe with a smaller heel and a cute silver buckle on my left foot and and another shoe with a slightly higher heel and no buckle on my right foot. At least they were both the same color this time! Sheesh. (And I didn't notice the heel height difference because the higher heel was on the shorter leg - yeah, I'm lopsided, too - but not noticeably so.) Security guard friend (whom I will call ChinkyPin) said, "I never would have noticed if you hadn't reacted to them! Maybe you should just hide at your desk all day!" Um...no. I just can't do that. My OCD is reacting strongly to this horrendous oversight and I am going to have to take myself home to right this wrong. Maybe, if I time it just right, I can get my prescription from Wal-Mart, too, while I'm out. Oh, and I should pick up the gifts for a couple of co-workers that I also forgot to bring with me this morning. Gosh - where is my brain? Well, to be honest, my brain is on finalizing a project at work and my impending drive over the mountains to SC to get SM this afternoon. (Oh, and I was also focused on getting a Peppermint Mocha from Starbucks with my gift card!) Anyway - I had to share my clothing debacle. Hopefully those outside of my "sphere" will think it's amusing. I, on the other hand, am mortified. I probably won't post again until after Christmas so here's wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas! TTFN JMS

I have worn mis-matched socks. I have forgotten to put on deodorant in the morning. I've forgottent to put on a bra (although, frankly I may not even need one in the first place). But I don't recall ever putting on 2 different shoes.... twice. :-) I love you.

Sam: Luv U, 2! I'm laughing so hard about the bra comment 'cause I completely understand that one.

OT: I've done that, too! How many "wardrobe malfunctions" am I going to have to admit to, here? :)

I'm sure you've heard of women coming out of the bathroom with their skirt stuck in their pantyhose and their hiney hanging out. I'm one of those women. And it happened when I worked in a men's clothing store.

Can't say I've done that ..but then, I'm not sure I would notice it if I had. Even worse huh!

I have come home on many, many occasions and AC will say "Please tell me you didn't wear that to work?" But, obviously I had as I just arrived home from there. Oh well!

Not a fashion Icon at all!

Love, UB and AC

P.S. Kalifornia was COLD! We froze as they don't have proper heat in those houses.
