After I ate dinner tonight I thought to myself, "Self, you should really write some sort of post," but nothing popped into my mind. Instead I switched from my summer purse to my winter purse and then painted my nails. However, things in the excitement department really picked up when Michelle got home and called the police due to some suspicious parking lot activity.
SPOILER ALERT. EVERYTHING IS FINE.
A few minutes after her call, a police officer responded to our apartment and we talked to him for a few minutes about the situation. Little did we know the best part was yet to come. After he took down our information he looked at us and said, "So, are you girls going to college around here?"
Listen, it made me so happy when we had to tell him that NO, WE HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN OUT OF COLLEGE FOR THREE YEARS AND HAVE REAL, GROWN UP JOBS, BUT WE ARE EXTREMELY FLATTERED BY YOUR QUESTION.
His question came at the perfect time, because just the other night I went shopping for new shoes and ended up buying a pair of flats made by the brand Life Stride. They have more orthotic support than any shoes I've ever owned and while I think I'm a decade or five under the target audience for Life Stride footwear, I can already tell that I will be a lifelong fan.
I did some clothes shopping after I bought my shoes, but was largely unsuccessful. I spent several hours combing through rack after rack and came home with nothing but two plain tops that I found for $2.58 each in the clearance section.
My shopping experience was quite unlike one that I'd had earlier in the week with Matt. He needed a few new items for his wardrobe and asked me to join him at the store to provide fashion advice and humorous commentary, which happens to be my specialty.
He chose a few items and headed to the dressing room, while I waited just outside in case he asked for my opinion. Well, a few minutes later I heard him WHISTLE AT HIMSELF. In the dressing room. At his reflection.
Needless to say he was very impressed with how he looked in his new outfit.
We're just going to have to work on building up that self confidence.
Something tells me that won't be any trouble at all.
