Have you had one of those days when
you just couldn’t get your ducks in a row?
You need to get resourceful on those challenging days!
Last week, I was powering through my day
(I have 2 speeds …
Zoom and Comatose.)
Mr. 4-Ever and I needed to be at a funeral by 4:00pm
and I was behind.
There was zero time to redo my perfect messy bun hairdo,
so I looked frantically for bottom options
that wouldn’t disturb the delicate balance that was on top of my head.
I squeezed into a pencil skirt from the back of my closet,
took a quick look in the full-length mirror,
Tight, but it would have to do.
I grabbed my purse and jumped in the car
waiting for me in the driveway with the motor running.
As Mr. 4-Ever exited the driveway,
I realize the skirt I’ve chosen is
It looked fine when I was standing,
but when I sat down,
it hiked up and stretched tightly around my legs.
Great choice for date night, but not for a funeral.
Don’t panic, I think to myself,
as long as I don’t sit down at the visitation,
I should be ok.
I’ll just mingle…a lot!
But then, a beam of sunlight hit my knees.
Girlfriend, it looked like a porcupine was sitting in my lap!
