Fashion, Life

In which I feel very patriotic

Awkward moment of the day: wearing a fake engagement ring to work to ward off the creepy men, only to have one of the nicer regular guys see it and– since he’d wanted to Facebook friend you and it didn’t seem to be working– have him wave off your “I’m sorry it’s not working” comment with a slightly disgruntled  “Don’t worry about it, it’s obvious you’re not interested” … and then having to make him his drink.

In silence.

While wondering how to let him know that while you aren’t interested, you weren’t just lying and ignoring him on Facebook.

Happy moment of the day: not having to worry about awkward moments later on Facebook.

Uncomfortable moment of the day: having your coworker comment about the creepy guys, “yeah, they love you.”

Wish of the day: that a “I smile and make friendly conversation because it’s part of good customer service, not because I’m  interested” sign was appropriate at work. It would lessen the awkward moments considerably.


Blessing of the day: my parents have been married 32 years today.  And they still love each other very much. They are my heroes.

Food of the day: breakfast/lunch (brunch… more like…), peanut butter and honey oatmeal; supper, whole-wheat spaghetti noodles, homemade spaghetti sauce, green beans. And ranch dressing. For snacks: a pomegranate fruit bar, and a  blueberry fruit peel.  (no sugar added.)

I didn’t get a chance to take any pictures.

I hope you have all had a lovely Wednesday.

And once again, I’m glad you can’t see how long I pause to recall what day it is.
