I drink like a fish and curse like a sailor. Sometimes.

I had an epiphany today.  I had to run errands and one of my destinations was Target. I parked next to this hot, little Mercedes sports car and before I could get out of the car, the owner of said Mercedes had come up and was putting her stuff in the passenger seat of the car, talking on her cell, etc. As I waited for her to get out of the way I noticed her humongous Juicy Couture bag while she was bent over in her tiny sports car. How fitting. She finally went around to the driver side of the car and as I got out of the vehicle I was driving it dawned on me–I am such a lazy bum. Here was this chick, just apparently running errands as well, but she was blond, beautiful, manicured, well kempt in general. And then there was me–wearing sweat pants, a shirt I had worn the night before and slept in and make up on from the previous night as well. I’m pretty positive the only thing I did before I left the house that morning was brush my teeth and put some pants on. Jesus. No wonder there aren’t guys lined up around the block waiting for me.

But does this little epiphany really change anything for me? Should I go out and buy Juicy Couture sweatpants instead? Maybe shower and put fresh make up on before I leave the house to run an errand?  The answer probably won’t surprise you–it’s a definite “no.” While the thought of reformation did indeed cross my mind,  I’m pretty much just a “what you see is what you get” kind of girl and I don’t think that will ever change.  Why get all gussied up to go to Target, or the grocery store or where ever. Who do I have to impress on these little outings?

Now, don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy taking showers and getting all dressed up or whatever–it makes me feel good about myself; it’s just apparently not something I’m prone to do on the daily.

Love it or leave it.

Just a quick update on the whole kankle-calves thing: For those of us girls with larger-than-average calves, I have discovered that Target makes boots that will fit us! They’re cheap, and they probably won’t last long, but they’ll fit! Yay!
