Although it had the promise to be. My morning started out ok. Got some work done and then I hit a lull, which was perfect. So naturally, I found a link to watch “Revenge of the Bridesmaids” and got about 2 minutes in when work hit. UGH. With my movie viewing pleasure put on hold, I consoled myself by thinking of the advent of going to Anthro during lunch. I very seldom take a lunch that requires stepping out of the office and into my car, but today most all the senior staff would be out, so it wouldn’t really matter if I was late coming back.
At about 2:30, I made my way to Anthro and amazingly found a great parking spot. As I crossed the street to the promised land where only good things happen, I breathed in the beautiful aroma of scented candles and freshly unpacked garments and braced myself for the sale section. I had every intention of making it rain on that discount rack, when suddenly I saw a girl that I knew. A girl that I knew, that works at Anthro, that I never wanted to see again. She was an acquaintance from the time when I was in the singing group that shall not be named, and you better believe that trick saw me. So she saw me, and I saw her. Great.
I decided that nothing was going to slow down my perusal of the fine quality goods, not even a too-happy-all-the-time girl that I hardly knew. With that resolve in mind, I dove in when I got a call from a New York journalist, whom I had scheduled a game demo with. The man can’t find where to go, and he lives in NY. I live in L.A. I’ve never been to NY. How am I supposed to help this man? After a series of frantic and panicked calls, everything is settled and he’s where he needs to be. At this point, I just give up. There’s no use looking at beautifully crafted and significantly marked-down clothes anymore. My time has not only run out, but I’m going to be embarrassingly late. Though, not wanting to leave empty handed, I did pick up this little ditty.
Of course, I will be planning my entire outfit around this one accessory tomorrow.
I got back to work at 4:30.
