Thursday Thoughts: Universal Mystique

universeI broke down and went shopping yesterday. I have social invitations at Nationals next month. But I hate to dress up. And it’s San Diego. And…and… So, I managed to spend under $100 and scored a dress with two “over-ups” that I can wear to cocktail parties, a skirt (that I need to add elastic to because who wears “yoga” skirts?!?!) that I already have an “over-up” to wear. What is this over-up? It’s a light jacket/sweater/top I can layer because I hate my fat arms and any dress/top that’s sleeveless gets one. I also bought new makeup because…dude…I haven’t worn any in MONTHS! So, you ask, what does any of this have to do with the Universe and Thursday Thoughts? Yeah…this:

Of course not everyone understands you, Silver.

It takes crazy to know crazy.

It takes sexy to know sexy.

And most assuredly, it takes cool to know cool.

Yeah, uh-huh, alright –

To everyone else, Silver, you have mystique.

  1. Ugh, shopping for dressy clothes. There’s something I haven’t done in years. I’m so glad you found some things without breaking the bank. :hugs: Yeah, I get the flabby arm thing, but I’m at a point where I have accepted them. In this heat, tank tops and shorts are my go-to ensemble. You’ll look awesome no matter what, cuz you are awesome. =o)

    I love mystique! But it is so not me. I’ve got crazy down. Not sure about sexy, but Hubs seems to think so. Cool? I think I’m cool, which is good enough for me. The Kid would probably disagree. My word is an acronym: WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get). ;o)

    • Silver James says:

      WYSIWYG works for me too. 😆 Around the house? I live in tank tops. I even wear shorts. (The horror!) But in public? Nope. I might go capris but the arms? Short sleeves at the very least. Ah, vanity…thy name is me. 😉

      • Ah, but you live somewhere where people might actually recognize you as an author or as the chapter prez or something. The only people who might recognize me in public are neighbors, and we’re pretty relaxed around here.

Got something to say?
