Math

The number of people you run into on Main Street is directly proportional to how bad you look on any given day.

Bonus points if you did not manage to match your clothes, or if you happen to see friends of your parents or an old high school teacher. Super bonus points if you see an administrator at your kids' current schools, or if the baby is wearing only one sock and has a crusty nose.

Standing on the street in the rain on Wednesday night, I met a former employer, my old 7th grade teacher, a woman I used to babysit for, and a former neighbor, all in a 10 minute span. Needless to say, I wasn't looking too good. How many points do I get?

yet another application of Murphy's Law. I sometimes run into people on the way to and from the gym, when I am wearing my old and unfashionable glasses (because they stay on tightly during exercise), a tichel, and clothes to move in rather than to be seen in. But I am not self-conscious enough to walk to the gym all dressed up and then start stripping off the wig, shoes, etc. to don the tichel, sneakers, etc.

PN - I know! That's what I always thought, until it was my own kid!

~Sarah~ - ;)

Superraizy - You're our grand-prize winner today! You get an assortment of hair and makeup products, as well as several disapproving and pitying glances!

Ariella - Just take off the glasses on your way to and from the car and won't actually see anyone, or notice their (see above) disapproving and pitying glances.
