Whoa, what a night. I only went to the shops because I’d forgotten to put socks in my bag and I wanted to walk home after work. Firstly I tried on some bras — how depressing. It just made me feel fat and frumpy. Especially since the girl in the next change room was calling out for a 10DD. WTF? Aren’t the rules in life you can only be thin or have big knockers, not both (well not without surgery).
Then I wandered to Rebel Sports to get the socks. On the way I found the most fantastico shoe bargains – a pair of red fake suede flatties with tie around straps (I saw a woman wearing similar shoes earlier in the day and thought to myself I’d like a pair of those and – voila!) and another pair of flat sling backs with red and orange dots 🙂 The first pair were $10 and the second ones $20.
Okay, as if that wasn’t enough, I got to Rebel and they had a whole bunch of shoes on the clearance table. Normally I look through them, not expecting much and I have been looking for a pair of cross training cos running shoes aren’t so great for things like boxing.
So way back when I was doing training runs for the Run for the Kids, the Nike people had shoes you could trial and I kept trying out this same pair of shoes. At the time, I thought I should get a pair but couldn’t afford them.
Today they had them for $80 sitting on that clearance table. In my size. You can’t fight fate.
I heart my new shoes. Of course with all that shopping and running around, I ended up catching the tram home!
