The BEST compliment I have ever received from another woman:
“I haaate you.”
She was older and meant it as a half joke, since my legs were basically my outfit. But this is why I’m retiring my mini skirts (for a week or so at least). I was granted with the incredible opportunity to be a (working) guest at the Royal Wedding Party at the Britain’s Consulate General’s Chicago condo. By the looks of my outfit, I’m sure most of the guests were wondering exactly what type of “worker” I was.
Johnny Walker Private Label (from Black all the way to Gold) was served, and a live Chamber music orchestra played. The entire event lasted no longer than 2 hours, but my fashion faux pas fiasco lasted well into the next day. I had no idea what type of an event I was in for, but I looked around and saw all the other ladies wearing knee-length chest-covering black dresses.
The photographer did ask my name, so I’ll be on the lookout for any published photos.
Mom’s joke: “You’ll be on the cover of a British magazine with the word ‘Americans’ written underneath.”
And of course, in typical Nicole style, I ran in the rain after the event with my heels off, sprinting to make sure there wasn’t a parking ticket on my car. Then I drove off to WalMart to purchase a few items for another job (Not those items, and not that type of job. I changed into pants to go into the store).
Guys, you have it easy.
Before my Xsport membership is up and I start exercising outdoors, I must use that rock climbing wall. And since no one I know has a membership, I get to be that girl who hassles the desk boys for help. Yay. I get to be THAT girl…might as well climb it in my mini skirt.
I guess you guys have it easy in some other ways too.
Its unavoidable and worth the effort…we used to climb my parent’s brick house when we were younger. (Some of the bricks stick out a bit as if its meant to be dominated.) Still never attempted climbing a tree though. Summer goal number 99999999. Oooo, maybe for apple picking in the Fall. It’d be nice to finally learn and taste ALL of the apple varieties.
And as if you readers haven’t caught on already, this post also serves as date ideas for your women:
walking in the rain
Sitting on the couch, playing a video game involving rock climbing, eating an apple and drinking Johnny Walker while its raining outside counts. It just doesn’t guarantee the mini skirt. (Sorry, I totally just wanted to say miniskirt again, because even I think they give a sexy visual).
