August 5, 2021, coming off the high of my improv class the previous day, was such a natural day for me. I spent a great deal of it being the woman I am evolving into. Dressed for a good nine hours, in at least six different places.
I just went about the day. Made a bank deposit for my Mom. Hit two separate clothing exchanges. Then I stopped at a historical cemetery and took quite a few photos. Next I went to the library, commandeered a study room and simply sat there working on the blog for a few hours.
Then it was time for dinner as I spent an hour or so eating and watching race walking from the Olympics on TV. Then I made the mistake of going to Nordstrom Rack. Yes, as most girls, I own a lot of shoes. But since my wife and I wear the same size and she has no problem with me borrowing shoes, I have invested very little in shoes. Most are thrift pick ups or hand-me-downs from my wife. I am pretty sure the most I ever spent on a pair of shoes was $16.
But this day….those damn shoes…..all I will say is just wait until you see me in these beauties! I am now $50 poorer.
Then I reported to my job at Mercury and had a ball seating our patrons. I was going to watch the play but I still had the shopping bug. I headed to Burlington and poked around. I walked the shoe aisle and an African-American woman was looking at a beautiful pair of nude Calvin Klein pumps. My size, 9 1/2! She asked me if I wanted them and I told her “want” and “need” were two different things. I encouraged her to get them. What I loved, LOVED, was she must have called me “girl” five or six times! We went our separate ways until checking out. I checked out at the same time and noticed she bought the shoes. I waited for her and we laughed about our encounter and yes, I got a few more “girls” before leaving smiling broadly all the way home.
In a month (since I learned how to track this stuff), we have had over 13,000 page views. Thank you all!!
