|Kate Spade - adorable- from $298. I don't have a pair of these. I wish I did.|
Sometimes working on fitness has unexpected successes. Like being able to tackle three flights of stairs without wheezing at the top.
Yesterday I was wearing a dress and a new pair of pumps. Cute pumps. They are like a Mary Jane-Spectator Pump hybrid. So adorable. I bought them slightly smaller than I usually wear because they didn't have my size. In my book, cute shoes are cute shoes and if your toes pinch a little, suck it up.
I stopped to chat with the custodian of our building. His name is Jesse and he is really nice. Another man who works in our building was standing near by. I am going to call him Tony. I am not going to say his real name because I don't want to embarrass him. And if I misconstrued what happened, I don't want to embarrass me.
I noticed that Tony was looking at something. He had a look on his face. . . .you know the one. The look that a man gives an attractive girl when she walks by. Not a leer -- he wasn't being a lech. It was just the look. And it was just for a second.
I looked around to see who he was looking at. No one was there but me & Jesse.
He seemed to be looking down a little bit. I followed his gaze and. . . .I think. . . .I think he . . . . .
I think he was looking at my legs.
Of course I checked to see if I had a piece of toilet paper stuck to them or something.
Then he said "I like your stilettos".
Stilettos? Well, that proves Tony is not gay. If he were gay he would know that my shoes are Mary Jane-Spectator hybrids.
I didn't have any toilet paper stuck to them and my skirt was not tucked into my underwear.
There was only one logical explanation.
He checked me out.
Just for a second.
I don't know if I can count that as a "success". .. . but it kinda feels like one.
