It's been a week for screwing up. So it was this morning, when I was forced to send the following e-mail about my out-of-dress code footwear to my boss:
I wear flip flops around the house and then switch into grown-up shoes before I leave for school. This morning I failed to make the switch.......a fact I realized when I was halfway to school and caught said flip-flop on the clutch. I'd ask my mom to call in and excuse me, but she's in France. So I must beg special dispensation for the day. Unless you can see fit to send me home, in which case, I'd owe you one.
I promise to remain penitent for the day.
Yours in footwear malfunction,
Note that I did not call them thongs, which means a whole other things these days. And let it also be noted that my new flip flops rock (thanks, KO!).
