Our Mommy, the Idiot!
Do you ever make stupid mistakes? If you're like us, they are few and far between. If you're like Mommy, they might happen a bit more frequently. Daddy probably has a Top 10 List he can pull from to entertain you with Mommy's periodic stupidity. (Don't worry, she has a list of his best moments too!)
Today was one of those times for Mommy. She had a few errands to run. She went to the bank, noticed she needed gas, and then her final stop of grocery shopping at Walmart. While pumping gas, she looked down and noticed something horrible:
She had on two different sandals!!!!! She was mortified. She texted a couple friends and Daddy to get their opinions. Should she go home (about 5 minutes away) or should she hold her head high and head on to Walmart? Friend M immediately said to go for it. Friend A wanted a picture before making a final decision. Friend H said to go for it since Mommy was only heading to Walmart. Then she mentioned a college kid spotted recently wearing two different shoes. Was she trying to tell Mommy she was young and hip??? Daddy said not to worry about it since she'd fit right in with the rest of the Walmart shoppers.
Mommy had already decided to GO FOR IT by the time she received most responses. Her other choice of coming back to the house was sure to just get the three of us all riled up. She tried to hold her head high as she walked the aisles (when she wasn't trying to sneak peeks to see if others were trying to sneak peeks at her feet).
She made it! She was stressed, but she made it. Gee Mommy, don't you have anything better to worry about???

PS: In slight defense of Mommy's stupidity, she was trying on shoes before leaving the house to see what sandals might look good with a certain pair of shorts for an upcoming event. At least that's what she's telling people. We don't know for sure. We haven't been allowed upstairs in a few months, so we can't swear to it . . .
