You know how those old routines used to start with: “A funny thing happened on the way to the theatre”? Well, I had two slightly odd incidents this week… and I don’t even work in theatre. Two times where I’m glad I kept my trap shut rather than blurting out what’s rattling around my brain.
The first incident was when I dropped my lad off at school. One of the mums – clearly a working mum – had on a pair of 20s style heels. I’d put money on them being the same ones I got from New Look the Christmas before last. I’ve got a pair just like them and they are probably the comfiest high heels I’ve ever owned. Great for dancing in too. I very nearly said to the lady who I was having a conversation with: “Great shoes, I’ve got some just like that.” Luckily I didn’t!
The second time around was at work. We were sat in the canteen talking complete rubbish having a comedy time-out and a young lady strolls by in a pencil skirt and a high necked blouse. You know the sort, they’re in fashion at the mo. So my trans circuits kick-off and I nearly said: “I’m not sure about those high necked tops.” Not the sort of thing you want to say to you unaware co-workers who you’d like to keep unaware! 🙂
They say these things come in threes so I shall be watching what I’m saying for the next few days!
Take care and have a good weekend,
PS: I bought my first pair of jeans this week. Well, ladies jeans anyway. A bargain and they’ll make a change from the usual skirt or smart trousers I wear. (Ed: Looking forward to wearing trousers? Something must be wrong 🙂 )
