you will recognize me by my mismatched clothes
July 24, 2007
I have been packing tonight. Or trying to pack. I am not good at deciding what I want to wear for days in advance.
What if I am hot? What if I am cold? What if I decide I just don’t feel like wearing that outfit?
So I just started putting things into my suitcase that I like. I have no idea if they match anything else that is already in my suitcase.
I had my bag laid out on the top of my bed with a couple of pair of shoes inside. My 8 yr old came walking in and looked through my suitcase.
“How many days will you be gone, Mom?” he asked.
“Five days, honey” I answered, trying to contain my overwhelming joy.
“Hmmm. I don’t think you have enough shoes in your bag. You should bring some more,” he said.
And how could I argue with that. I tossed a couple more pair of shoes into the bag. I don’t know what I will wear them with. But just the fact that they are there inside my suitcase, just in case, makes me happy.
Should there be a shoe emergency, I am prepared.
I might be naked or look like I dressed in the dark, but god damn I will be properly shod.
