Sometimes a Girl's gotta Twirl ...


And twirl I did! So, on my way out of the Post Office this morning for my second trip to the car to mail orders, I look down and for crying out loud, I'm wearing 2 different shoes. Now if that isn't bad enough, I gotta go to work. Work you say? Yep, I still work a few hours a month as a Human Resources Consultant with the company I was with for 20 years, mostly on an as needed basis.

No dress up needed today, so it was jeans and Crocs for my day. When I noticed my faux pas, I actually decided to draw attention to the fact that I was nuts . First, carrying the rest of the orders into the PO, there is someone holding the door for me. I say to the nice man, thank you ... and if I could bother you for a few minutes for my survey and ask you which shoe looks the best with these jeans, I would appreciate it. He threw his head back in laughter ... I continued in ...

Next on to my job... I walk in and there is the delightful security guard which thinks I'm a little whacked anyway. I sign in, catch the elevator to the top (even though "mine" didn't go there today) and walk out. Here comes Frank and he notices it right away. Now Frank has known me for 20 years so I allow him to take a photo with his Treo phone whatever thingie.

And so twirl I did. I twirled and twirled in front of all my friends - hoping for their approval of my new found style... Didn't work so much ... but we all got a good laugh ... Oh Janie Janie Janie ... I heard that more than once ...
What I learned today ... Twirling is much more effective when wearing a full cut skirt - similar to poodle skirt. Twirling does not have the same effect when wearing Chico jeans...

Has that ever happened to you?

On the Knitting front ... The Yarn Grove received in the brand spanking new gotta have it book from Interweave Press called Favorite Socks. As soon as we put it up, it was sold out! So more are on the way this week along with some other new ones next week! Check back ...
