Shopping *IS* a Sport

Oh. My. Goodness.

I cannot tell you what a great day it was today.

Did everything go perfectly? Nope. Not at all. In fact, I've got about 2 hours worth of work to do yet tonite. Have my first big customer review tomorrow and someone (not me), didn't get the stuff done.

It was still a great day. I made some deals, fixed some problems and laughed. A lot.

But you know what REALLY made my day? (like the title isn't enough of a hint!) I found my Tall Girl Shop. YEAH!!!

I went looking for it Sunday during the Ogmeet, only to discover that it was not where it used to be. No one knew where it could be. I came to the conclusion that they had closed that location.

And I was not happy about it. I love the idea that I can shop for slacks, long..big girl slacks, and try them on. Take them with me. Instant gratification - that's me. So I was bummed.

Today I looked it up on the 'net and voila Found It. So I went, directly after work.

I walked in and just started giggling. I couldn't help myself. I'm standing in a store FULL of stuff just my size.

The clerk came over and I explained that I needed slacks and/or a pant suit. BUT - I wanted it on sale.

No problem.

We found a cute suit and then she took me over to these black pinstripe slacks. OK - I'm a little self conscious in slacks anyway and pinstripes? PLUS, she was telling me I needed to be wearing Jr. Size. (for you guys out there - that's the teen stuff!) I wasn't sure, but decided to humor her.

I tried on the pinstripe first. I don't like to put off the yicky part so I figure we'll just get this out of the way right out the gate.

I walked out and went over to the three-way-mirror-from-hell.

Where I promptly looked around to see who was standing in that mirror - cause it sure as hell couldn't be me.

Tammi: Where'd I get that ass and why haven't I been showin' it?!?!? Holy Cow!!! These are magic pants. I need to be seen in these bad boys!

I thought the sales clerk was going to pee herself she was laughing so hard.

And you have to realize. I DO NOT ever say anything like that. Hell - I've never even thought that.

Yes - I bought them. Are you kidding?!?! I would have bought one in every color if there had been such a thing.

AND I got a suit.

On sale.

I saved more than I spent.

Damn - it was a great day.

Except now I'm on this adrenaline rush. Power shopping (all that in under 30 minutes) really needs to be an olympic sport.

... magic ass-pants?... dayum... my favorite jeans look like a pack of Nicaraguan rebels moved out of the ass-side of them....

... in other words, I needs me some magic ass-pants.... because, well, I ain't got one....

I want magic pants! Do they make them for short girls too? I want them to make me look TALL! I could call them my 'Almost as tall as Tammmi pants' and they would go with my 'Almost as tall as Tammi boots'! I would be taller than you!!!

Wait... I'm calculating. That would be an optical illusion of 1 foot 1 inch... Hmmm

Bou - I think the pants I bought are taller than you. :-)

I did picture you in that store. I've GOT to take you there sometime. You'll feel like Alice in Wonderland. hehehehehe

You aint' got magic pants, you got a magic ass. I saw it in that skirt saturday. All thatmoving and hustling firniture around has given you some new muscle tone, and it looks good on you. Show it off.
