Today's Outfit: July 10, 2008

Today was one of the most frustrating days in recent memory for me. I won't go into too much detail, but it's getting close to deadline time. On top of that, I've had to deal with at least one unhelpful person, programs crashing or stalling, and the ordeal of T-shirt distribution for a pub crawl I've been helping organize. I felt drained by the frustration of little things building up all day. I went home a bit early and chose to walk, and that was when I fell.

Literally. The strong winds in the morning knocked some still-green horse chestnuts out of the trees, I stepped on one of them, and I fell. Hard enough to scrape my knee, scuff my sandals, and send my Coach purse flying. Hard enough for a woman slowing down at the intersection to ask me whether I was okay as I picked myself up and winced at the pain in my knee. I gingerly walked the next block to my house, holding my skirt up so I wouldn't bleed on it. Once inside, I dabbed at the blood spots with a Tide to Go pen and surveyed the scuffed toe of my sandal with dismay.

Methinks I should've stayed home today. But hey, I should look on the bright side. The pub crawl will be a roaring success and the T-shirts are selling like hotcakes. I didn't damage my Coach purse or my Chanel sunglasses, or do a face plant on the sidewalk. The fall didn't sprain my weak left ankle. Tomorrow will be another day, and I have the pub crawl to look forward to. In the meantime, I'm going to hide at home until this day is over with some tea and a good book.

  1. Hi Lisa,

    Thanks for visiting Stylefinds, and thanks for the link! I've added you to my blogroll.


  2. That sounds like a rough day! I'm forever in fear of falling and I can't tell you the number of times I wiped out on ice this winter...ouch! However, you look darling! I love the pattern on your skirt and your sandals are very cute.
