frankenstein shoes and bad hair days
I did break down and buy a pair of jeans from Target as my one and only pair was in need of washing and I needed to be at the hospital. The pair I picked up fit for the most part but the waist hits my waist in a most uncomfortable spot and makes me feel squishy and a bit bumpas-like or rather kinda like kin to the Pilsbury Dough Boy. Bother.
I sit here in my brother's hospital room as he gently snores and drools his recent walk away. His body is still cradling one enormous cocktail of drugs and he is loopy and uncoordinated. I am a bit too warm in this window seat and feel a bit of a doze coming on and I am looking at those ugly shoes and thinking that maybe they aren't that bad. I am also wishing I could have overalls or coveralls...vintage style of course and found some on etsy and wouldn't they be awesome with a pair of stompy-clompy shoes or boots and pintucked blouse and wavy hair and...and...and...and then I thought I should get a perm! So if next time you see me and I look a fright just take my advice and do your best to never operate under stress and lack of sleep...you might end up with an unfortunate tattoo, piercing or perm as you stompy-clomp around in frankentstein shoes.
