Monday Madness-Man My Feet Hurt!

WOW, what a weekend. I had a book signing at Once Upon A Time in Cedar Hill, (Thank you Danielle and Gail Wedgeworth for hosting me) and thinking I needed to look cute for the signing, I got all dressed up, including these adorable fake fur lined boots that I just love. My Awsome Brother-in-law stopped by and brought me something to drink (Thanks Gene) My good friends from Ralphs Design and Deli, Andi Reis and Renee Groskreutz made sure I was well fed. (We need to do that again soon) and I shared the spotlight with a great group of authors. (Shout out to Sandy Lawrence, Joyce Faulkner, Frank

Here's the madness, they have a 3 inch heal. I'm not used to wearing heals and I spent half the night walking around in my socks. What bonehead dressed me that morning? Oh, that's right, ME.




So, here's my Monday Madness Question of the day, and I'm going to make this one fun. I'm going to pick one lucky comment to win a special prize. My adorable boots. LOL. Just kidding about the boots, but one lucky person will win a Dragon Hunter T-shirt.






What bonehead idea have you had that you regret? And remember, we're making this one fun.

  1. There was the time we went for a "short hike" in Bryce Canyon and left the sunscreen in the car. There's no such thing as "short."

    1. I feel for you. Been there, done that.

  2. Once, when looking for a job, I got an email from my advisor on a job interview she wanted me to go to. I checked out the job and learned it was actually a scam. How my advisor fell for it, I'll never know. So I emailed her back saying I'd rather pass on the interview. She emailed back saying that she wanted me to go because she went to the trouble of finding the job and getting the interview for me. I was so mad, I typed up an email about it to my husband and the email was full of swear words. (Yes, I do swear!) I was SO ANGRY! I hit send without realizing that instead of going to my husband's email inbox, it went to...my advisor's. Oh, my Lord. I was so embarrassed. (She replied with one sentence, telling me not to go to the interview after all.)

    1. Wow. ROFL! Soounds like something I would have done. (yes, I've been known to spout a few of those words myself)

    2. Hi, Jeanne. I am posting this comment for my daughter, Jennifer. She just read my comment on here and cracked up: "OMG LOLZ XD XD MOM, THAT IS HILARIOUS!!!"

    3. Tell your daughter I agree with her. I read your post while shopping and more than one person looked at me like I'd lost my mind. I might want to add that I have a loud laugh.

  3. Bought a new Mac laptop and the first thing we did was get the design of 15 Twitter Tips layout on it. It started acting up so we took it back... and left the book on it, the only copy. Each of us thought the other had put it on Dropbox. Once we realized it, we frantically called back to BestBuy and it was a miracle, but they hadn't wiped the drive yet. We actually got it back.

    1. Good thing you got that back. That's never happened to me, but I have deleted a file before. I think I cried for an entire week before I realized I'd printed the book out. I still haven't made a new file for it.

  4. I feel your pain, Jeanne. I went to a Taylor Swift concert with my teenager and a group of moms and their daughters. We all dressed the part. I wore a sheer black top with a blinged-out bra and sequined heels to match. Little did our concert-bound entourage realize that the ride from Denton to the Dallas Cowboy Stadium would take two hours. We all had to pee...really bad. Traffic was at a dead stop. Everyone, except for the driver, abandoned the SUV for a nearby Burger King restroom. When I emerged from the ladies room, my fellow toilet groupies had fled the scene. They were sprinting down the road to catch the SUV. As you can guess, traffic is finally moving and now I'm running down the highway in hot pursuit of my ride. After my 1/2 mile relay, I finally reach the car. Once we arrive at the stadium, my poor feet have gashes on the top from where my shoes cut into the flesh. Needless to say, I learned my lesson. From now on, my Taylor Swift concert attire will consist of a pair of VANS and, if I'm lucky, a Dragon Hunter T-Shirt. LOL :)

    2. Hey, Jeannie. I'd like to be funny and recount some ghastly debacle, but my old brain doesn't remember them. LOL They must've been so outlandish that I've squashed the memories. And for you ladies and your heels? Always tennis shoes. The only safe way to go. What if someone chases you and you need to run away? Seriously. LOL

    3. Marsha, I'll have to take a picture of these boots. They really are adorable. It's just too bad I can't wear them for log periods at a time.
