Almost anyone who knows me as an adult, would tell you that I am a very "put together" kind of dresser. When I was still working, I pretty much always looked at least good or better, because I wouldn't wear something unless it all worked together. Colors/styles/prints, whatever, it all had to look right or I wouldn't wear it. Rarely did I actually wear an outfit that didn't make the cut. People told me what pretty clothes I had and how nice I looked all the time. Unsolicited, too!! :) So, what in the name of all that is fashionable, happened to me this week???
[You can blame Blogger (darn them) that I cannot post the photos that prove what I am about to tell you. Trust me, tho, it happened.]
Monday is the day I take M-t-G to her violin lesson. I had done a couple of errands before I picked her up at her school, took her to the lesson, had dinner together in a restaurant, and took her home where I talked with Ratchlet for a few minutes before I went home. I had not gone home in between, so I still had on the clothes I wore when I left the house. I was gone for a total of nearly 6 hours.
When I arrived home, I checked email, looked at a few blogs, etc. But just generally sat around for a couple of hours. I decided to changed out of my shoes and into slippers because my tootsies were chilly.
I went to the closet, stepped out of one brown shoe and slipped into the slipper. Then I noticed that in addition to the brown right shoe that I had just removed, the brown left shoe was already there. What? I still had on a left shoe, didn't I?? I looked down and sure enough on my left foot was a shoe....a BLACK shoe, not BROWN, BLACK. I had been all around town wearing two different shoes!!!! They weren't even the same shoe! One smooth leather, one kind bumpy....one cut high on the foot, the other lower....one was a heel, the other more of a wedge! The only way they were alike was that they were both slip-ons and were the same heel height!
Either nobody noticed (I hope) or everybody noticed and they were hysterically laughing behind me. I never noticed! Completely and totally unlike me! AACCCKKK!
Then today when I got home after my errands, I visited the loo (its always the first thing I do! Prioritizing at its most basic!) Looking down I saw as I was pulling up my brown pants which I wore with brown shoes and a pair of....BLUE socks!! Oh my God; again? What is the matter with me? Can color blindness develop in later life??? That's it, tomorrow I start a fashion checklist before leaving the house!
All in all, "I Should Have Stayed in Bed" all week!
