Ah Friday, there you are. I’ve been wondering where you were all week. Good to see you.
A few nights ago I was doing some innocent online shopping. The reason it was innocent was because I added things to my virtual shopping cart with no real intention of actually buying anything. I was satiating my shopping fix without spending money. Am I the only one who does this? Anywho, I was benignly perusing Zara when I happened upon the most beautiful pair of shoes. For $100. Eeeeeee.
Wilson was sitting beside me and our conversation went like this:
Me: HOLY SHIT!
Wilson: What! What? What happened?
Wilson: Anna! What!
[silence] [intense laptop starring]
Wilson: Would you STOP looking at your laptop and answer me? You can’t just scream holy shit and then not answer.
Me: Oh. Sorry. These shoes!
[Wilson leaves the room to get another drink.]
Wilson brought it to my attention that I do this all the time. I will exclaim about something, and then won’t say another word. It’s kind of like the boy who cried wolf, but only cried wolf once, really loudly and alarmingly. Similarly, I also like to refer to things as the thingy-ma-jig and whatchacallit, and refer to people as whatshisface and whatshisbutt. I realized I actually am guilty of these annoying things when, in a meeting at work, I referred to someone whose name was escaping me as “whatshisbutt.” I’m a work in progress. Always.
As usual, poor Wilson.
The last thing I need is another pair of nude shoes — I think I’m approaching double digits — but these are just too good. And that price? Come on. They practically hopped in my online shopping cart themselves. In the event that you are looking for a fantastic pair of nude heels that will add just enough spice to your outfit without being obnoxious, these heels are the answer to your shoe prayers. Am I the only one who does this?
Fine, the cheese stands alone. Next to my wine.
