Do you like my new shoes? Do ya? Huh? Huh?

I have to share these three things....

1. For those of you who don’t believe that ad campaigns work….well, here’s proof they do. Husband was taking his fish oil vitamin this weekend. 9 year old daughter says, “Dad, what are you taking pills for?” He says, “I take these to help my cholesterol.” She says, “Duh Dad, why don’t you just eat Cheerios? They lower cholesterol.”

Um yah, duh Dad. Score one for Cheerios.

2. I AM THE QUEEN OF POOP. Wait, let me rephrase that. That really didn’t come out like I wanted it to. Um okay – you know how MEN explode in the toilet next to my office daily and it sounds like Pearl Harbor and smells like death all damn day? Welllll ladies…I have solved ALL my problems. I got this bright idea to shut the bathroom door with the light on and I only told the girls here…..so when you walk by it looks like someone is in there but all us girls know that it’s empty and all clear to go in without plugging your nose or vomiting. Seriously – this sounds funny but I’m not kidding you – at least 3 men have walked by and turned around thinking the bathroom is occupied since I started writing this. Have I mentioned I’m a freaking genius? (oh and I’ll do anything to avoid poop or poop smell?)

3. Today I am wearing nearly 5 inch wedge heels. (Ha – I seriously just sat here and measured) And I’m sporting a new tube top that is pink and black and it makes my Victoria Secrets expensive boobs look HAWT! No one has said a word and dammit I know my calves look hot too. I mean you put any foot in 5 inch heels and they’ll look hot….well maybe not Chef Emeril’s but mine DO! I’m pissed no one has noticed. I did not shop so no one would notice. So I took the bull by the horns and marched straight into my co-worker’s office and said, “Do you like these shoes?” She said yes and then without any prodding said “I love your shirt too”.

Girls, this is your friendly neighborhood mama pimp telling you there's no shame in asking for compliments.  I will never be too proud to point out how hot my shoes are. So I forced her….big deal….I’ve done worse for less payoff.

********
Okay – that’s it lovies. Oh oh and I did 7 miles yesterday and got up at 4:30am to do 3.5 more this morning! I’m blowing my June goals out of the water and my Wednesday BYOC challenge is going down!!! What did you promise in BYOC on Friday? Whatever it was - I know you can do it!

Be well my friends,
~Draz

Holy Cow!!!! 7 miles?!?!

Jess said...

You're so clever! And way to go on your miles covered! You rock....I wish I was as inspired as you! My time will come though. I know it.

I agree very clever. Cause sitting by the bathroom wishing you had a gas mask wasn't going to work.

Your "between the lines" post was really beautiful. And true...

Sandy Lee said...

I'm sure everyone is so stunned at your beauty that they are speechless. I ask for compliments too. It's the only way people notice. I am sure that everyone noticed you and I'm not kidding. You could just post pics on your blog and you would get so many comments it would overload your blog. Love the lights on trick. If anyone asks if the BR is empty just shrug and say yes! Cute.

This post is worthless without photos. The shoes. Not your hawt boobs. Unless you feel the need to share both. :)

Gen said...

You are an absolute genius about the bathroom! But no pics of the top and shoes? How could you do that to us? You know this is the best place of all to get compliments! Plus Inquiring Bloggers want to know! Pics!!!!

Nice work on the bathroom...once that trick stops working, you can always try an "Out of Order" sign next.
Way to burn up those June goals, mama. I'm keeping my Friday promise by doing protein shakes today and tomorrow as follow-up to my fill.

Seven miles and you could still rock those heels? What a woman!

And a smart one! I work in a small office with disgusting old men, too. Might have to borrow that trick.

Jenny said...

Good lord, 5inches? I would fall over for sure. I bet you look hot!

Love the office trick!

Thanks for coming by my page showing love to this newbie, but I laugh because my nephew who is 9 was talking to his friend about kissing girls and he says quite seriously "every kiss begins with Kay" from the jewelry store ad. I told him he is gonna go broke with kissing girls then!

TracyZ said...

You're a genius and you're hot! Who knew?!? ;)

I wanna see a photo of those shoes lady!

If the men catch on....which will be days....maybe even weeks....be sure to take your matches to work. Works like a charm to kill the smell.

7 miles is freakin' awesome. Word!!

Ice Queen said...

Too bad I can't do the light on in the bathroom trick here at home. Husband has been... Well... Dealing deadly lately and I am about ready to hand him a roll and tell him to go be a Charmin Bear. Out in the frakking woods!

And yes, your shoes are fabulous. :D

Maria said...

Brilliant work on the bathroom! And I agree... we need pics of the shoe hotness.

TEASE.

That's right...I called you a TEASE.

How can you post about shoes and NOT have any pictures?!?!? I love shoe porn!!!

My wedges are only rocking 4 inches today.

Damnit.
