Girls Write Out

Happy Fourth of July!

I'm home working today (how patriotic!) Leaving for a BBQ soon, and back for the fireworks tonight. (Not that California isn't on fire as it is! We have a great view of the city's fireworks here.)

But I wanted to just pop in and say that I've had a love of nautical wear since I was a kid. I LOVE it LOVE it! So yesterday, I dressed in a great striped (navy & white) top, with a little bow at the front, jeans and red shoes. I went:

Drove my son to summer school
To my church coffee house to write.
Met up with a friend who took my daughter for a playdate.
Helped my husband unpack the garage.
Went to get tires on my car.
The grocery store.
Got a visit from a friend selling Cutco.

NO ONE told me that my cute little patriotic shirt was on inside-out, with the tag a flailing in the wind. I went an entire day!! Happy 4th!

Oh, my. LOL.

I would have told you, Kristin. I'm that girl.

Once I was waiting for a friend to join me in a tea shop when three ladies came in together. They were looking over all the lovely teapots, and I complimented one of the ladies on her new capris. "How did you know they were new?" she asked. The answer: she had one of those clear strips of tape running about 10 inches down one leg that repeatedly said, "size 12."

Yeah, I jokingly scolded her friends. They should have noticed.

A prisoner of hope,

I'm sure they just thought you were making a fashion statement.

Not sure what the statement was, but it was a statement, nevertheless!

Poor you! I would have told you too :)

Did you purchase any Cutco? BEST knives ever!

LOL! You crack me up. I haven't done the shirt inside out, but I have worn two very different earrings (one a dangly thing) and no one said anything.

Maybe people are too polite or too into their own problems / lives to notice? (E.g., Our principal shaved off his beard and I didn't notice the whole day while we were working on budget stuff. Talk about embarrassing when I finally realized what was different about him! That day I was wrapped up in my own problems--and the budget--and didn't see the missing beard.)

Probably no one noticed, which made me feel more middle aged than ever. LOL Oh Megan, the tag thing would be awful to have your size running down the leg. Ugh!

I purchased a LOT of Cutco (haven't told the hubby yet!) The girl is a young friend whose mother has taught my kids in preschool church forever, so I owed them! And they weren't hard to buy, they're great knives. I got the white ones! I wished the special red ones matched my kitchen, but I have that orange glass tile. KB

I'm a tag-tucker, so I probably would've tried first to tuck in your tag and only then would I have noticed...

I just wanted to warn you about the Cutco knives if you bought some. They are truly the sharpest knives on the planet and I ain't kidding. I nearly bled to death the first day I got mine and took them out the box.

I am very respectful of my Cutco knives now and I use that cutting board with caution.

On the other hand, (now that I've used the Cutco knives) I love them.

We do live in a great country--you did all those things in freedom and no one bothered you even about your shirt! (those clothes police)

Oh my -- this is too funny. My daughters are usually the ones who announce that I have my 'something on wrong' but there was this one time I was shopping and somehow, my sweater was inside out -- no one told me.
I'm feeling the pain {grin} and laughing (with you.....)

At 5:03 PM, Blogger Mocha with Linda said...

Ouch. Yeah, I would have told you. I've tucked tags in of perfect strangers.

Oh well, you can pretend it's a new shirt the next time you wear it, right? That's one way to double the wardrobe! LOL

At 8:06 PM, Blogger Julie Carobini said...

The world is not all that observant, unlike writers...:) I would have told you too, and not laughed (much).

At 12:17 AM, Blogger Kristin said...

I know someone had to see, I sat with my back to the entire cafe (like 50 people!) I paid attention. I heard all the interesting conversations. Why can't others pay attention? And help get me dressed?

At 1:16 AM, Blogger Margo Carmichael said...

Too funny, Kristin!

I think Julie's right. Nobody noticed. They were off in their own little world.

We are, too, but ours are more interesting. And often funnier. LOL

At 1:23 AM, Blogger Anna Marie said...

Like Linda, I also have tucked in a tag for a stranger. But I think I should have told her what I was doing first. lol I couldn't help myself.

At 1:16 AM, Blogger Pam Hamer said...

You're killin me. I would totally do something like that! I'm also ashamed to admit that my first reaction to someone falling is usually to laugh. It looks funny to me! Yes, I'm concerned if they're hurt, but that is my second thought. It's a family curse. My Mom did the same thing. I really do hope you've recovered. Peej
