I had a rather amusing encounter with someone today who was probably my first confrontational meeting about any of my recent changes….and it really wasn’t all tha confrontational either. He basically noticed my new nails (how can you not notice platinum nails?) and asked if I had lost a bet! I thought it was rather amusing, since I read some stories about how guys were getting asked about wearing heels, and someone said they had lost a bet just to break the ice.
My favorite response is that now I can type without fear, and I like something a little bit different. People in my everyday environment seem to be pretty oblivious to my nails, heels, “man-bag” carrying….although I was told about a time the other day when I wore my wedge-heel slingback sandals to the grocery store, and apparently there was a guy who was standing behind me GLARING at my shoes!
I mean seriously people…..don’t people have more important things to worry about than what someone puts on their feet? I almost….almost went out of the door this morning to work in my 5″ knee-high boots, but then my own common sense kicked in and said I would regret it due to the distances I’d be walking in them, so I chose my lower-heeled pair instead.
Gads, I’m getting ballsy again, but since I now tend to co-ordinate my clothes a touch better, it doesn’t seem to stand out as much as it used to. Perhaps these are the baby steps in the right direction I should have been doing for some time now.
