Monday Morning Close Call!
Monday Morning Close Call...
I had a bit of trouble getting ready for school today, more so than usual. I couldn't decide what I wanted to wear. I showered and then stood in front of my closet, peering in, trying to plan out an outfit. Nothing looked right. Nothing was appealing. Nothing was speaking to me. So, I just went with black on black on black with a little splash of red.
But then...the shoes...what shoes should I wear? Again, I couldn't decide, so I put on the left shoe, of my favorite old comfy black standbys. Then just for the fun of it, I tried on the new black shoe on the right foot, and again stood a bit longer in front of the mirror trying to decide. Which one? I knew today was going to be a long day, so I thought maybe I should walk around the house a bit to see if the new one would be comfortable for a long day on my feet.
I went out to the kitchen, made breakfast, packed my lunch, packed up the car, and was off to work. I was on the road and zipping down the street on my way to school. I came to the first stop, half way to work, and realized I had on two different shoes. Yep! Two different black shoes! Seriously! Two different black shoes!
Panic set in, did I have enough time to turn around and head back home? I stared at the clock and began calculating. What was I thinking, it didn't matter how much time I had, I was not going to work with two different black shoes on my feet. I made a quick u-turn and zipped right back to the house. I went with my old reliable comfy black shoes. Enough with making decisions today.
Whew! Almost a disaster! Although now tonight, I am thinking it might have been fun to see if my students or any of my teaching partners would have noticed the two different black soes.
