Had some time to kill before a blind date and was utterly exhausted. Thought a nice nap in the park would be perfect. Laid out my yoga mat, curled up and was ready to pass out.
I would have been asleep in moments, but kept getting a whiff of dog poop. Mmph, it's a park after all, no big deal.
But it wouldn't go away. I sort of half sat up and scanned the area around me...shifting back and forth on my mat and sort of turning side to side. I looked under my mat, around my mat -- it seemed to be clear. Since I was laying on my side, my feet were sort of stacked and I couldn't see my bottom foot. But now I could see the smear of dog shit on my yoga mat.
Yup. ALL OVER my foot. Not just my shoe, people. All my shuffling around had spread the poop onto my skin and IN my shoe. Completely disgusting. All the leaves in the park and the box of handy wipes didn't seem to do the trick. I was convinced I still smelled like poop.
What's a girl to do?! Basically, it was the perfect excuse for a pair of new shoes. And if this boy was cool, would also be a great story for tonight.
The new shoes: Totally cute.
The date: A no show.
