Three things.

There are events that, individually, seem pretty harmless but when they all happen within a few hours of each other, can kinda mess with your day.

1. You are given a gift certificate for a pedicure and you save it and save it until your toes can no longer stay hidden under the cloak of closed toe shoes. At said pedicure, you take a risk and deviate from your usual pale, neutral pink. when your toes finally see daylight, you realize you couldn't have chosen a color that looks worse on your feet if you had tried.

2. You have one cold Diet Coke left in the refrigerator and your daughter offers to bring it to you. "For special." When you take your first sip, you get a mouthful of perfume. You find out that "for special" means that your daughter sprays the top of the can with your favorite scent so your Diet Coke will "smell pretty".

3. Looking forward to a yummy dinner with your bible study girls, you imagine all the delicious food that you'll get to eat. As you're thinking about this, and making your children lunch, you absent-mindedly pop a blazing hot, and undelicious, Totinos Pizza Roll into your mouth thereby burning your tongue and guaranteeing you'll taste absolutely nothing at dinner.

All I could think about is how I wished that had happened before I drank perfume.

I so get it, and I feel your pain.

Sue said...

Oh my... can you go back to bed and start the day again? If only!

Hope tomorrow is a better day ;-)

Send me a pic of yours and I will do the same! I took Ave for a b-day pedi and grabbed my color really quickly for fear we would spend all of our time "deciding" Avery said, "mom, you don't really look good in dark colors like that!" when we were finished. Urggggg. I'm so frustrated- it is just getting pretty and I have ugly, dark toes!

What color did you grab??

Love sweet Sadie making her mamas DC all special. :)

AREN'T KIDS SO SWEET!

Candy said...

Actually, I think Em's dark color is probably worse than your pale lavender/mauve color. Might have to opt for a polish change next week!
That Sadie is creative! And, I bet the vino acted as a pain-killer.
Love you.

Never deviate. Stick to the plan! Every single time I try to pick a new color (for the 2 pedis I get a year, if that) it turns out horribly! But because I actually paid someone to paint my toes I just can't bring myself to take it off! Pale Pink is the only way to go, as sad as that it.

I've been lurking here for a while and thought I would finally leave a comment...I myself prefer regular coke and my inner 2 year old comes out when its my last one and EVERYONE (I have 4 kids) wants a "sip"!

Jess said...

Perfume on the diet cola, huh? Smart kid...wish I had thought of that to pull on a few people. :0) You poor thing. Three strikes do not make for a fun day. I actually have sworn off pedicures all together since I ALWAYS smudge mine the second I leave the place. I have big, clumsy feet, what can I say? Hope your day is better today!

Danni said...

Aww, I hope today was better!
