The morning I put it on to go to work, Bear says, "You are really going to wear that to work?" I said, "Yes!". So on my way to work, I get almost there and a couple of thoughts pop into my head...one, "Oh my! I can't believe I really wore this thing!" Then the second, "You know, this is really a test of self confidence for a girl." I am not one to every really want to "stand out" or whatever. I know some of you may think, "what is the big deal with the vest?" Well, I wanted to share with you some of the funny comments/looks I got throughout the day....
~"Oh, don't you look fancy today."
~strange looks from patients
~"Let me see your vest"
~"That looks warm!"
~Two sales reps enter the office, one says, "That looks stylish." The other (a gentleman) says, "Looks kind of like the neighborhood cat." "Meow!" (really, he made the sound!) And I don't know these people personally!. :)
~"Amanda, look at your pants!!" (The "fur" had shed on my brown pants and they were partially white. :)
~Finally towards the end of the day, the Fedex girl comes to pick up packages and says, "I like your vest!" and my office manager and I just crack up laughing.
Needless to say, it was quite the conversation piece for a usual hum-drum work day. I told Michelle about all the "compliments" I got from it and she said, "You keep the vest." :)
