A Run In

You know when you're having one of those days? The kind where you decided that getting dressed was too much work? Brushing your teeth, what was the point? I can shower tomorrow, right?! Basically you're just a great big 'ol hot mess.

Today was one of those days for me. I didn't get dressed. Didn't shower. Didn't brush my teeth. Had absolutely no intentions of leaving the house. Not a single one. I was not going to be dragged farther than my backyard. Definitely not. No way, no how.

Until dinner time. We didn't have enough of a key ingredient for dinner. Desperate times, desperate measures. I throw on a pair of shorts, as opposed to the boxers that I'd been wearing all day. Grabbed a zip up sweater to cover my tank top. Throwing on a bra was deemed too much work. Grabbed my flip flops and purse and out the door I went.

I decided I was only going to Walgreens. It was close to my house and there was no way I would run into anyone I know there. Especially since there is another grocery store an equal distance from my house. If I was going to run into someone, it would definitely be there. Definitely. At least that's what I told myself.

Until I got out of the car and walked directly into an old friend and her fiancee. Did I mention that I was unshowered, hadn't brushed my teeth, and was wearing a sweater in 75 degree weather because it took more work to put on a bra? Yeah, I was looking good. You know, except that I totally wasn't.

To make an awkward situation worse, they both looked nice. A "10" to my "2". It was great. Even more awkward by the fact that I felt awkward.

I'm one of those ramblers when I feel awkward. I go on and on. You know to make sure that I embarass myself just a little more. I informed both of them that I hadn't showered. That I didn't think I'd run into anyone. And ran off telling them that I was just going to go hide this unshowered face inside.

Oh gets better.

They were getting a Red Box movie, which means that I got to walk past and awkwardly talk to them again when I headed back out to my car. Empty handed. Yep, that's right Walgreens didn't have what I needed. It was a wasted trip. An embarassing and wasted trip. Just great.

Even better, turns out we did have enough of what I needed. Actually we had more. Super. And I completely forgot to grab the Sunday paper. Which was the second reason that I went to Walgreens. No big deal. I love a little mortification for no reason.

Next time you see me I'll be the girl dressed to the nines, just to put some gas in my car. I will not be the girl who didn't shower, put a bra on, or brush her teeth. Not me, not again.

I've had many days like that and I always run into someone I know. Meh.

Dropping in from sits. Make it a great day!

Oh no! That has SO happened to me before! And I can't pull of the "throw something on and look fabulous" look. Walgreens, who knew. LOL

Isn't that so typical. I swear I don't do it often, but if I try, somehow all those people from high school are waiting as I round the corner without makeup and a bra.
I've learned my lesson too.

Holly said...

It seems like it happens to me all the time too! So embarrassing.

But don't worry, Walgreens would have probably been out of the paper too. They aren't given many and they are usually gone well before dinner time. I worked there for 4 years and we never had enough Sunday papers. Now at least you don't have to say Walgreens let you down in 2 areas, right?

I was like that yesterday. I don't care though, I'll go to the store in hello kitty pajama bottoms. SOmetimes I feel and think I look my best when I'm in sweats and t-shirt. It's when I'm the most comfortable. But that's just me. PS throwing the hoodie on to avoid putting on a bra, great idea!!

Oh no! That always happens- it's fate!

I can also relate to your blog. There are days I stay home and look an absolute mess. Although, I don't go out I fear someone will knock on my door....... Submit cute or funny photos and tell your friends to vote for them. No entry fee.

TOo funny Kim! I have those days about once a week though. HAHA! I had one of those days on Saturday as a matter of fact. I went into Papa Murphey's with a ratty t0shirt and yogs pants on. No bra, no teeth brushed, no shower... ick!

I wish I can say that has only happened to me a couple of times...

I got into quite the habit of being the dirty girl that I didn't even realize I was doing it until my husband nearly attacked me when i was showered and dressed up. And by dressed up, I mean I was wearing jeans and a tshirt. After that I realized that even if I didn't take a shower, I could still manage to pull on a pair of pants. And not the stretchy kind.

Popped in from SITS to say hi!

Aleta said...

OMG, I know those days. Yes, I do and that's why I'll be late going somewhere, but I won't have that experience again. Mortifying when you just want to slink away and not be noticed. Lol.

Jen Sue Wild said...

We all have days like yours.. It just proves we are human. LOL

My heart breaks for you. I'm from a family line that espouses "do a full face of makeup and hire a hair stylist just so I can go out to get the mail." As a result, I can't, just can't, leave the house without being D-O-N-E. It's mostly fear of what you just described.

Added to my family history is the fact that I work as a makeup artist and wardrobe stylist. People would rag me so bad if I went out the house without making the effort to look better than they do. After all, they pay me to teach them to look good. LOL
