Shove on over on that wrong bench because it made me laugh, too.

White Dragon, no one noticed.  Believe that.  I hope you get business!
After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.

Hope you get a reply soon.  Maybe something like "You're just what we're looking for.  Someone who approaches things from a new direction."

Seriously, good luck!!   :)

I'm sorry, I shouldn't be laughing... but you went into that [donkey] backwards!

/that was so wrong of me

Does it still count as "Best foot forward"?. ::)

At this point I am hoping that if I can't tell then neither could they...

I have come in to work quite a few times with various articles of clothing inside out or backwards (I need to hang a mirror on the inside of the front door.)  No one ever notices.

To White Dragon:

I found my wedding dress in a funky little thrift store with a changing booth smaller than a shower stall.  I tried on the dress and it fit nicely.  Lace insets in antique ivory satin with fabric covered buttons down the front and a medium length train.  I couldn't really get a feel for the train because the booth was tiny and the store didn't have much more room.  I bought it ($100!) and took it to be dry cleaned.

When I got it back from the dry cleaners, my family gathered in my bedroom to see my *new* wedding gown.  I buttoned up the front and we extended the train - 6 feet in front of me:o  Yes, back then my boobage was no bigger than my shoulders, so it fit as well frontwards as backwards.

I wore it with the buttons down the back when I got married.  I gotta admit, it was easier to put on with the buttons down the front.  I guess wedding dress makers assume that every bride will have a MOH to button dozens of little satin buttons down the back of the dress where the bride cannot reach. ::)

I called DS from the store to ask if he wanted the Chicken Cordon Bleu or pot pies. DS says pot pies. I asked if he wanted chicken or turkey, and he said chicken.

I get home. DS is looking all over for something. DS heard Popeye's, not pot pies.  >:D

Well, obviously.  No one would choose pot pies over Cordon Bleu (or its yummier sibling, chicken with broccoli and cheese)!

That said, Popeye's is amazing fried chicken.  ;D

I love pot pies, the Marie Callendar's brand turkey, baked in the oven. It's a twice yearly treat. I had no clue he wanted Popeye's!

Two in one day:

First, I was wondering why my feet were so comfortable even though I was on them so much.  When I looked down, I was in my gym shoes  ::).  Nice look with a pantsuit.

Second, I had a student whose name was B'Elanna, as in B'Elanna Torres from Star Trek: Voyager.  Without thinking, when I came to her name on the class list, I blurted "Oh, like in Star Trek!"  ::).  The look on her face meant "Everybody who was watching TV in the 1990's tells me that".  Part of me thinks, "Well, look what B'elanna's parents saddled her with by giving her a beautiful but trendy name".  Later, I approached her quietly and apologized, but said that at least B'Elanna was a strong and powerful character  :-[.

(I almost shared her fate.  My maiden name is the same as the family in "Peter Pan".  My mother wanted to name me Wendy, after the girl in the story.  My brothers, bless them, pleaded with my mom not to do that, as anyone over a certain age would remind me of "Peter Pan".  So I was spared.  Then I go and marry a man whose last name is a major city in England, as well as in "Sheriff of _____" in "Robin Hood"  ::).)

I think I have found my long lost sister!!!!

I have told a few people of my boo-boo in the last few days and the universal reaction is:

Step 1: Gasp in horror
Step 2: Stare at my pants
Step 3: Try not to laugh (in that "I know I should laugh, but..." face.)

Me again   ::)

I was meeting the family of DD16's "friend who is a boy and may become more" this afternoon.  I had no sooner entered the house and shaken his father's hand that I tripped over a baby gate and fell right on my keister.   Everyone in his family is tall with long legs; I am not.

*The gate was designed to keep the family chihuahuas out of the entryway.  I fully expect puppy pleading very shortly.
