Superglue Is My Friend (...Or Is It?)

Super glue has failed me again! Ya see..I wore my black heels to work again and again, until finally they couldn’t take it anymore. So the soles fell off. But alas, I am a working woman, so this will never do, especially in the middle of a work day. So I grab my trusty (or is it?) super glue and attempt to glue the hell out of both soles of my sad and worn out shoes. This holds for about 40 seconds. Now with every step I take, you hear “flap, flap, flap” and my life is now in danger as I make a simple trip to the break room, or the bathroom, or to my car...

Stupid cheap shoes.

So on my way to work this lovely, sunny morning, my brand new (albeit cheap) sunglasses broke. I sigh (and may have said a naughty word) and dig around my center console for an old rejected pair. I find some and they help me make it the rest of the way to work. My master plan is now to superglue my new (and cheap) sunglasses back to their original form. This plan fails miserably. So I threw the damn sunglasses away.

Stupid cheap sunglasses.

Stupid super glue. Not my friend at all.

(note: you should know that I don’t wear “flappy” shoes to work anymore. Not that I didn’t continue to wear them for about 3 weeks, but I was blessed by a great sale at Nine West where I proceeded to buy myself 2 new pairs of fantabulous shoes! Call me flappy no more!)
