I was driving with the Band this weekend when he saw a car ad featuring the new tagline for True Lemon:
Dave turned to me and said, “I don’t get it. Am I supposed to seduce my water, or make it my enemy?”
Oh, husbands. Sometimes it seems like there is some kind of Amelia Bedelia-ness going on in those brains.
For those of you who don’t know Amelia Bedelia, she was so intelligent that an entire series of children’s’ books were made about the way she misinterpreted instructions. Here’s an example. Amelia Bedelia is supposed to “change the towels”. So she does:
She was clearly a genius.
I just wish I could figure out a way to misinterpret, “Ally, you should stop buying shoes”.
“……..So, you don’t mind that I STOLE these shoes? At the price I paid, you can pretty much considered these shoes burgled.” (ßThat’s the best I could come up with. Only judge if you can do better.)
I thrifted these two pair this weekend with the best amiga Laurel:
Old Navy Sandals (all rhinestones in tact! Woot.): $3.99 @ Goodwill in Columbus
Aldo Pumps: $3.99 @ Goodwill in Columbus
These next pairs are ones that I’ve wanted to share but haven’t had the opportunity til now:
J. Crew Shoes: $10 @ Salvation Army in Cinci
Anne Klein Leather Heels: $3.99 @ Goodwill in Columbus
BCBGMAXAZRIA Suede Heels: $3.99 @ Goodwill in Columbus
These next ones look cuter on the feet. Trust me.

For 7 pairs:

(After all, savings are savings no matter how the husband tries to spin it.)
Amelia Bedelia THAT.
