Today will be hilarious one of these days...

I always say that the combination of my oft-occurring bad luck mixed with my complete lack of coordination and added to my complete lack of common sense puts me in situations that would embarras most people. However I find them hilarious.

Today was one of those days. But, I have to admit that I only found it annoying today. Now tomorrow it will be funny. Today, not so much.

So, first off, I wore these shoes today.

They are awesome shoes and, considering the fact that I got them from Old Navy pretty cheap, they're pretty decent. However, these shoes and the weather conspired against me today.

It turns out that, when the material on the top of the foot gets wet it stretches more easily. So, after getting caught in the rain and thoroughly soaked this morning, then walking home at lunch, the shoes stretched a bit, which allowed my foot to slide further in. And then, since I already have really short feet, it became even harder to keep the piece of fabric around the back of my foot in place. Once that fabric slips off the heel, you're basically stuck with flip flops with 4 1/2 in heels.

So here's the mental image for you. Chicklet with bright red hair and tatts, dressed in pinstripe pants so long that they almost reach the ground despite her 4 1/2 inch heels, trying to walk without lifting her feet. Yeah. It was real cute. Plus it took me 15 minutes to get to my office. *sigh*

But you know what, I'll always go with fierce heels over common sense. I'm just hoping it works out for me one of these days.
