Yesterday afternoon, I put my shoes on just before I left to buy ski pants. This shouldn’t be a hard decision but you already know I’ve become a shoe whore for Chucks. With so many to choose from, I try to rotate which colors I wear so that no pair feels lonely for too long.
Realizing that I hadn’t worn the blue Chucks in a few weeks, I went with those. Everything is fine up until this point. I gathered some cds to take with me, my book in case I got lunch while I was out, and my fleece since it was a balmy 50 degrees yesterday. I put on the fleece and walked to my car. I got in my car, put the key in the ignition, and started the car. Then all mental hell broke loose.
Looking around the floor, I had a direct line from fleece to shoes. I had no idea how I’d let this happen, but I was wearing blue Chucks and an orange fleece. Unacceptable.
Orange and blue do not go together. It’s completely preposterous. No sane person would wear those colors together.
I had a brief but contested mental battle with myself. Yes, it was an abomination, but I would survive. The car was started and I was ready to leave. I decided to let it go. Just because I wore those colors once, no one was coming to revoke my Hokie status. Unless, maybe they were.
I turned the car off and went back into my house. Looking in the closet, I exchanged the orange fleece for the blue fleece. I went back to my car and drove off in peace.

Nice fleece. Nice shoes. Where’d you get them?
Ok you fussy metrosexual you! How is it that you ran back in the house to change “non matching” clothes when I (presumably a girl) wouldn’t go back in the house to get a pencil to take my Biology exam with? I just bought a pack at the liquor store and conned them into sharpening one for me.
Hey Tony, Live dangerously. Mix and Match Baby! The most beautiful Birds I know wear those colors! Diana Thanks for this post. I didn’t have to come up with pithy comment!
Mmmmm… peanut butter and cho-co-late….
