Yesterday while I was writing my post about becoming what feels like increasingly feeble-minded replete with coffee dripping off my nose, while re-making the pond area at my house -- at some point during the day I noticed I was wearing my pants on inside-out. Wearing my pants like this was a real blow to what's left of my esteem.
How did I notice my pants were inside out you ask? I came upon the opportunity to tie the belt thingie that comes with these pants and for some reason I just happened to reach around the back of my pants where I felt the label sticking straight out. At first I thought this was one of those errant labels that tends to stick out regardless. You know the labels I'm talking about...usually they're on your most expensive blouse you've chosen to wear to a special event -- when you're at a party trying to look your most elegant and stylish? It only took a few seconds to realize that the label on my pants was in the right place. It was the bottom half of my body that was not in the right place.
Though in the interest of diminishing self-esteem, I've decided to spin this idea of wearing my pants inside out. Making the decision to wear my pants in such a manner is part of my new strategy for going green which is young, trendy, hip and cool. Today I'm wearing the same pants right side out, setting the fashion world on fire. Too bad I work by myself and you are the only friends I have on the planet so you'll just have to take my word for it.
And still on another positive note, I took the soon-to-belong-to-someone-else's hippy sign down all by myself this morning before leaving for work. I own my own drill that my mom gave me after my husband died. My husband died in Oct 2001 and for Christmas that year I got a drill set. I hope to GAWD that when I die, I can't be replaced by a tool though this fear looms large. Honestly I've really not needed a man around since receiving that drill set.
This gives me a fantastic idea. Now if anyone asks if I'm dating I'll tell them "Why yes! His name is Makita." And they will think I've lost my mind completely now that I'm dating a man from the islands.
Don't forget to put your name in to win the hippy sign!
