Today it is sunny outside (yay!) Not too cold - but definitely not warm. A chilly 41 degrees (weatherman indicated it would be in the upper 50's - don't know why I listened).
I wore a dress today to work and yes, I knew that I would be walking at lunch - outside. I purposefully left my sneakers at work yesterday so I would not have the excuse of forgetting to bring them. I even remembered to bring socks!
I thought about skipping out and just going over to Walmart. Back and forth my mind went. But I knew I needed to get out there and just DO IT.
My walking partner skipped out on me today....leaving me another out if I wanted to take it.
But no....I took off my heals, put my sneakers on, put tissue in my ears (my ears are really sensitive to the cold and wind), grabbed my gloves and phone (gotta have music) and headed out the door.
I'm fortunate that where I work has a perfect place to walk around the condo area. It is rectangular and is .20 miles to complete.
I must admit that I felt kind of silly in my dress and sneakers, but I plunged ahead. At first, it wasn't too bad....
Then I rounded the first corner and was walking AGAINST the wind.
....head down....with one hand on my dress trying to make sure it didn't blow up revealing more than intended....
One lap down...five more to go.
The more laps I made, however, the more my underwear started creeping down.
Do you have any idea how uncomfortable that is?
Do you know how hard it is to discreetly pull up your underwear while you are walking?
By the sixth lap, however, I had it all down - one hand tugging at my dress holding it down, the other discreetly pulling up my undies.
I would love to be able to write what the moral of this story is other than if you are going to walk in a dress, wear a long one with good fitting underwear.
