Open Toe Shoe Pledge

Received via email from a friend who I will deem as "Local Shrimp" and it's oh so appropriate, especially considering what I have seen at work lately.

Alright ladies, it's that time of year once again!!! I think we need to be reminded of a few things. So my sisters, PLEASE, raise your big toes and repeat after me below....

The Open Toed Shoe Pledge:
As a member of the Cute Girl Sisterhood, I pledge to follow the Rules
when wearing sandals and other open-toe shoes:

I promise to always wear sandals that fit. My toes will not hang over
and touch the ground, nor will my heels spill over the backs. And the sides and tops of my feet will not pudge out between the straps.

I will go polish-free or vow to keep the p olish fresh, intact and chip-free..

I will not cheat and just touch up my big toe.

I will sand down any mounds of skin before they turn hard and yellow.

I will shave the hairs off my big toe.

I won't wear pantyhose even if my misinformed girlfriend, coworker,
mother, sister tells me the toe seam really will stay under my toes if I tuck it there.

If a strap breaks, I won't duct-tape, pin, glue or tuck it back into
place hoping it w ill stay put. I will get my shoe fixed or toss it.

I will not live in corn denial; rather I will lean on my good friend Dr.
Scholl's if my feet need him.

I will resist the urge to buy jelly shoes at Payless for the low, low
price of $4.99 even if my feet are small enough to fit into the kids' sizes. This is out of concern for my safety, and the safety of others. No one can walk properly when standing in a pool of sweat and I would hate to take someone down with me as I fall and break my ankle.

I will take my toe ring off toward the end of the day if my toes swell
and begin to look like Vie nna sausages.

I will be brutally honest with my girlfriend/sister/coworker when she
asks me if her feet are too ugly to wear sandals. Someone has to tell her that her toes are as long as my fingers and no sandal makes creepy feet look good.

I will promise if I wear flip flops that I will ensure that they are actually flip and flop, making the correct noise while walking and I will swear NOT to slide or drag my feet while wearing them.

I will promise to go to my local nail salon at least once per season and
have a real pedicure (they are about $35 and worth EVERY penny).

I will promise to throw away any white/off-white sandals that show signs of wear... nothing is tackier than dirty white sandals.

Pollen Contest

I thought about this way too late. I wanted to take a picture of my car and start a "who has the most pollen covering their car" contest. But today I drove up to our little mailbox kiosk and used the hose to spray off my car. I guarantee you though by tomorrow it will probably look the same as it did before I sprayed it. I'll wait a few more days and then take a picture. I have a black car so with all the green pollen covering it I couldn't help but think about this. If you have to use your windshield wipers in the morning just to see past all of the green gunk it's a baaad pollen season.

Feel free to post a picture if you haven't rinsed your car yet :) I think a contest is still in order.

Overheard from Spurs

Do you know what the official scent of South Carolina is? Off!

Overheard while trying to get the 1,000,000 gnats off of our screened in porch while using our Off spray!
