Too much blue.......

I ride the bus to work. That does not save me from having to drive at all, since the park and ride lot is 15 minutes from home. But it does save me from having to drive to downtown Houston in rush hour traffic.

I enjoy riding the bus, as it gives me time every morning to read….the ride is usually 25-30 minutes. So, when I get to work, I am nice and calm and not stressed out by my commute.

I tend to not pay attention to people on the morning bus. I just get on, find a seat and bury my nose in my book. The afternoon ride is a different story, as I often ride with a friend of mine and we chat the whole way.)

This morning I got on, sat down and as I was pulling my magazine…not a book today…out of my bag, I glanced across the aisle. And saw a foot. Encased in a BRIGHT BLUE PATENT LEATHER shoe.

This is not the real shoe, but it is the real color of the shoe I saw. That one was a normal pump, but this is the color.

Normally, I don’t check out what other women are wearing on the bus, since it just seems a little invasive to be “checking them out.” On the street, it is okay.

I couldn’t help myself. I looked up. I HAD to know what this woman was wearing with these party pumps. Are you ready for it?? Navy blue skirt, powder blue jacket and white and powder blue striped blouse. OH….MY…..GOD! There was so much blue.

And it didn’t work……at all. Sorry Blue Lady.

LOL! She was probably headed to a costume party?... as a Blue Man Groupie?

Frances said...

She COULD be a Blue Man Groupie. But I think she was actually headed for work. I see her on the bus regularly, so she works downtown, too. I wonder where!!

yonca said...

I thought the same thing with McVal. Or maybe she is working as a fashion designer?

Frances said...

Trust me, this blue lady was anything but fashionable. LOL!

Thanks for coming to see me!

Together We Save, thanks for coming to visit.

I had a teacher that would try to wear every shade of the same color. It didn't work back then either.
I'm color blind so I make sure and ask before I try and be a fashionable!

Frances said...

SonyaAnn, you would be gorgeous no matter what you wore.

Those blue patent shoes, though. BLUE PATENT SHOES. In the daytime. Oh, my.

Pam said...

Maybe she was trying out for one of those glade commericals. You know, the blue, breezy linen scent.

Frances said...

Too funny, Pam! You could be right. I know I will find myself looking for what this lady is wearing every day now. LOL!

Maybe she just has bad taste.

I always wanted to ride the bus to work, but when I worked, I was a single mom with a child in daycare. I could never get the bus schedules to work around the daycare schedule.

Frances said...

Hi, Annie Jones! I am thinking she just has bad taste, too. LOL! (That is so mean of me!)

I would never have taken a job downtown if I didn't have a friend that already started riding the bus and let me know how easy it was. I have worked there for 11 years and only driven all the way once. That was enough!
