She's actually a girl
John had to go to a Reception at the Marine Commandants house in DC to represent Spectrum and he persuaded me to accompany him. I tried everything I could to get out of it. It meant I had to go out and buy and outfit, shoes and even jewelry. I didn't think it would be the kind of event that my "dressy" sweats would be good enough for. So I tromped off to the mall - shoot me now - and actually had to try on dresses and stuff. And what the hell is up with shoes these days? You either had to choose 6-8 inch hooker heels and there were 1 inch grandma shoes. I just wanted a nice pair of high, but not too high, heels. It took me forever to find something. So, off we went - dressed as grownups. It was actually an okay evening. The house was beautiful and the food was good, but I just hate having to make small talk with people I don't know. Heck, let's be honest I don't like making small talk with people I DO know! All in all it was a decent grown up evening!
