I Work Well On the Reward System.

I had to run errands today, and there was one that I didn't want to do: go to Home Depot and find Teflon Tape to fix the seal on the mini-dishwasher so that if we use it it doesn't spew water all over the floor. See, I hate going to places like Home Depot because people assume I don't know what I'm doing and I DO. I'm actually pretty damn handy. But with the expensive jeans, 4 inch heels, and slightly lowcut shirt, I don't exactly look the part.

So I walk into the store, go directly to the plumbing department, grab a roll of the Teflon tape, and head straight to the checkout counter. I give them my $2 and get out of there. The whole thing took about 10 minutes. And I was asked 4 times if I needed any help! I mean, it's nice that they're helpful, but damn. They wouldn't have asked a man in jeans and workboots if he needed help 4 times. It was annoying.

So, because I'd gotten the Teflon Tape, I allowed myself to go get Steve Madden rust-colored cowgirl boots at DSW for $27.

And yeah, I'm lazy, and I couldn't get a good picture of the boots on my feet easily, so I stole this from stevemadden.com.

Now I'm going to go make that fantastic Brazilian Shrimp Stew again, because my husband actually requested it again! And that's exactly what makes me feel like a good cook - my husband requesting meals that he loved.

Those look like the boots I wore last Hallowe'en, when I was a big ol' slut.

I'm sure you look better in them, though (though I looked damn fine, lemme reassure ya).

;)

Those look fabulous, and are a LOT cheaper than mine . . . although, when in Texas, one must buy the expensive boots from the country store, and then wear them to the ranch. Which is what I did.

Oh, I miss DSW. I wish there was one down here. It is always fun for a cheap 'pick-me-up'...as in 'feel better' not the 'I-hope-I-get-hit-on'. He he!

I dunno, I'd be kinda flattered... you know they just wanted to talk to your glamorous self. ;-)
