This morning I put on navy slacks, a green turtleneck, and my favorite green shoes. As I was leaving the house, I grabbed a red shrug to bring to school in case I was cold. Only now do I realize that I look like an elf.
I bought this as a “good job you finished your thesis” present to myself. I think it’s lovely.
A little while back my daughter told me the following depressing joke:
Woman: What do you do?
Man: Me? Oh, I write books.
Woman: How interesting! Have you sold anything recently?
Man: Why, yes. My couch, my car and my flat-screen television.
