Bad choices 101

Have you ever had one of those days......?Where you wish you had taken the extra five or ten minutes and showered, or maybe put some eye liner on. Maybe choose jeans instead of sweats, you know a little extra effort. Today was that day for me. My husband left today for a business trip, he wanted me to go to airport with him, but I wanted to go to gym. I wanted to do both, so I fore go the shower, hair in ponytail, no makeup and yes sweats. All with the intention of heading to the gym after I went to airport with Hubby.

But like most people Monday's never go as planned. My daughter stayed home sick today, with either a cold or allergies but most definitely not the Swine Flu. So I called her as I was leaving the airport to check on her. She ask me to stop in the city for a few things she needed. And that is when I started regretting the non showering hair in pony sweat wearing Monday I was having.
Sure I live in a city where I really only know a handful of people, what is the big deal no one really cares and knows me right. But the little voice inside me said Kathy come on sweats!

Regrets went into full gear when I found myself at the Clinique Counter and face to face with the perky German cosmetic lady! Needed to pick up three step face cleaning products for daughter , she took one look at me gave me the up and down once over! You all know the look! And after she rang me up, took my money and ask me to wait a minute. I'm waiting thinking shit what is she doing, damn I hope my credit card is fine, WHAT is taking her! She returns with something for me she said and puts in the bag.

Okay Danke! So I look and it's a sample of Clinique Youth Surge. Package says..Unless you're in some hurry to look your age. New youth surge age decelerating moisturizer.

Lesson learned never fore go the shower and wear sweats in the same day you need to visit the Clinique Counter , NEVER.

We totally know the drill on this one...made the mistake of thinking no one would be on the 4:30am commuter flight and did jeans with minimal makeup and there three of the station's biggest advertisers all on the same flight.

Enjoy your week!
