pop

12 Dec

as you all know from reading this blog, i regularly have oatmeal smears on my clothing.  and now with cold and flu season, you can guess what is on my other shoulder.  so today i needed to rachet up my standards in order to work the kitchen at the funeral.  i take a nice hot bubble bath and even go to the trouble to shave my legs (which is not a regular thing between september and may) even tho i’m wearing pants.  i powder and spritz and move onto hair and make-up.  no leftover hair today my friend.  no sir, we are freshly laundered and not only do a blow dry but flat iron it too!  it’s a good hair day.  i even broke out some concealer to attempt to hide the bags under my eyes!  if scott had been home to see me he would have wondered who was in his house!  so i finish off the face and hair with a sweater set and floofy dress pants.  i’m thinking i look pretty fine compared to the wreck that was here 45 minutes ago!

so i work the funeral.  nice crowd-about 120-150 people.  i greeted many of them as i hadn’t seen some for a while.  i had a nice time catching up with the other kitchen wenches.  after 4 hours, i zip on home and decide to rip over to the clubhouse for some stitching.  i go to change into work clothes and realize……wait for it……..wait……….

that i’ve spent the afternoon with hundreds of people while i was wearing my pants backwards.  that’s right.  seriously!  who does that?  apparently me.  now granted, the pants are the floofy slinky kind with no zippers or buttons but still.  pop.  that’s my self-confidence bubble bursting.  i’m no longer allowed in public unless someone checks me over.

        i think i remember telling u or maybe sybil did that i couldn’t get the wallet out of the front pocket of my shorts at the shops one day. turned out they were on backwards too. so dont feel disheartened, u r in good company. and on second thoughts u can’t have my sign. i might still need it.

    ROTFLOL I have no advice. Just laughing with you!! It does sound like something that would happen around here though if I ever did leave the house….

    LMAO!!!! I must be your long lost twin. I attended a band rehearsal looking pretty darn spiffy, I thought. About half way through I slipped away to the restroom. Discovered I was wearing my sweater…backwards! Sigh. (at least it wasn’t inside out. I’ve done that on occasion as well.)

    A kindred spirit! (Hey, the joy of getting older may be that I don’t stress long over that stuff anymore. At least I’m breathing! ) 😉

      ha! between the two of us we’re completely dressed…pants and sweater…backwards. 🙂

    • myolivebranch December 13, 2009 at 11:07 pm #

      and look what good company i have! besides, if i didn’t tell on myself right quick, someone else would tell on me. and people LIE!

    I think having children is what does it to you… seriously I have never had issues with dressing until I had kids. Since then I have worn my underwear inside out (and not because I didn’t have clean ones) and worn a new shirt with the tag hanging out the back of it all day long! And no one told me!
