GIVE A GIRL THE RIGHT SHOES AND SHE CAN CONQUER THE WORLD...BETTE MIDLER
This is a quote that I use a lot when I do my altered books. Tonite I want to tell you a story that reads like one of my books.
Tuesdays are fun days for Betty and I. This week I knew Betty would be doing her taxes, so I e-mailed her and told her to meet me at GW at 11:00 if she was done. For those of you that are not familiar with code, GW stands for GoodWill, as in resale shop.
Betty didn't make it, so I took my time and really shopped,
I MEAN SHOPPED FOR HOURS SHOPPED!
First I found these really great shoes...MADE IN ITALY SHOES.
|SHOES TO DIE FOR|
I SHOULD KNOW BECAUSE I WALKED AROUND FOR 4 HOURS IN THEM.
You have to try shoes out to see if they fit. While I was walking I found a large white ceramic planter for me and an Easter
cat for Max. He will love it because when you squeeze its paw it meows. He will soon learn that trick. Then I found a large grey
leather purse and a Chico's sheer blouse...ORANGE.
BUT I DIGRESS. THIS IS WHAT MADE IT THE HELL DAY
I checked out with my favorite cashier...SHE KNOWS MY NAME, and proudly pushed my cart to the car with my loot.
I FORGOT TO TELL YOU I ALSO BOUGHT TWO GREY AND GOLD LEOPARD PILLOWS. I had quite a lot of LOOT.
I got to the car and reached for my keys........NO KEYS
NO KEYS, they had been in my pocket.
NO KEYS, I checked my purse again.
NO KEYS anywhere.
I forgot to tell you I bought a pair of white shorts too, AND I TOOK MY PANTS OFF TO TRY THEM ON, THE PANTS WITH THE KEYS IN THE POCKET.
I checked the fitting room...NO KEYS
HELP, I HAD TO CALL JERRY. YOU KNOW JERRY, THE HUBBY THAT HATES ME TO GO TO GOODWILL. His worst fear is that I might buy too much STUFF. HE doesn't like too much STUFF, not that I would do that.
Anyway, I did call him and I had to wait in the parking lot with my very full cart of STUFF.
NOT A PRETTY PICTURE.
HE CAME AND SAVED ME AND MY STUFF. I thought maybe I should put on my very pretty shoes for him after I got home...
|WHAT TO WEAR WITH THEM?|
I COULDN'T THINK OF A THING....
SO I DIDN'T!
WHO SAID TUESDAYS ARN'T FUN...
PS...when I took off my ankle pants to change into THE SHOES, guess what I found in the cuff? KEYS those little buggers were there all the time...GOD WORKS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS, YES, FUN TUESDAY.
