Why I Shouldn’t Go Out On Sunday Nights

February 22, 2011

I know a lot of people had yesterday off in lieu of President’s Day, but I didn’t.

And I don’t usually make it a habit of going out on Sundays, but there was a band called Sea Monsters we wanted to check out.

They were definitely worth it– one of the guys in the band plays the trumpet.

I like trumpets.

And the 3 Blue Moons I had left me feeling happily fuzzy and none too concerned that I had to work the next day.

Fast forward to the next morning:

Despite only getting about 4 hours of sleep, I was actually feeling pretty good.

I got up at my normal time.

I got the coffee going that I had remembered to get ready the night before.

I managed to put on a normal looking outfit. (Bonus? Nobody knew it was the same one I had on the night before, and besides, it was easier picking it up off my floor than having to rummage through my closet.)

I even packed a lunch!

Needless to say, I was feeling pretty smug when I got into work, convinced I that I can still manage to go out on a work night and actually act like a functioning human being the next day.

Alas, my smugness was short lived. Here’s what my sleep-deprived brain had packed for shoes:

Going out on Sunday was fun. Having to wear my rain boots all day at work? Not so much.

Work night party fail.

    President’s Day?? Here I thought it was because it was my birthday! Had fun Sunday. Tks for coming down.

  4. DAD Says:

    Also, I bet you have another pair of shoes at home just like those, so don’t feel bad.

    Yeah for Uncle Ricky jokes! And no worries….I wore two different pairs of shoes to my first day of teaching at Branford. And I didn’t have rain boots to wear all day. You can be sure ALL my students noticed and never let me live it down 🙂 At least you had an excuse….

    Ha ha….wait until you are pregnant, I’ve worn 2 different shoes out in public…one with a heel, one without and didn’t even notice until the 3rd place we went! Healthy minds and prego-ness does not go together!
