Gauge of Horrification at the Post Office
While I'm getting dressed in the morning, I am sometimes thinking of the gauge of horrification I may encounter at the Post Office. It may be as high as a 10 on those days I decide to toss aside all reason--and really dress wildly. Other days I may sneak in and out without so much as scoring a 1.
This day I knew I would score at least a 5. The shoes were worth a 3, and the fact that I was not dressing my age (whatever THAT is), I could tack on another 2. This was further emphasized when I encountered yet more strange looks later at the mall. Meanwhile, I was very comfortable in this get-up. And I was very proud of myself that I was able to utilize this top I had originally bought for a beach cover-up. I liked the neck detail so much I didn't want to get rid of it!
It always looks better in my drawings....
