New Boots: A Nine West Story

I tried on some sale boots at Nine West when I was in Atlanta with Rashan over the break and he didn't like them.  But he liked another pair that I also liked so I decided to try those on.  But they didn't have my size.  I went online and they had my size but by that time I had decided to save my money.  Then a few weeks later they didn't have my size in the color I wanted.  BOOOOO!!!  And when I went to South Florida, that store didn't have my size either.  CURSES!

I kept stalking the site until they reappeared in my size.  YESSSSSSS!!  I WIN!!  So I hurried up and bought them and somehow managed to get free shipping.  Woo hoo!!  The other day I came home from school to find this outside my door.


Mr. Postman... what makes you think this is okay???
Did you say to yourself, "Self, if I put this welcome mat on top of the box no one will notice."? 

Is that what you thought?

Because when I first walked up, I just started laughing at the ridiculousness of it all!  

A few more questions.

Did you really set my box next to my door with a mat on top of it like that was hiding it??  
Are you the guy who still hides under a cat when playing hide or seek, putting the cat over your eyes?  Like if you can't see me, I can't see you?  
I bet you are.

You ordinarily seem smart and cool and I'm glad I didn't have to wait another day for my boots or go to that nightmare of a post office to pick them up but come on now.

I opened the box and what do I find?  Tada!  Come to mama!!  In person, the darker color is more true.  Yay!!  I can't wait to wear them today.  I might wear shorts with them just to show them off.  Lol.  Just kidding.  It's only supposed to get up to 57.  Yes I said only!!  And what??  I'm wearing pants!

Okay, that's just ridiculous! I can't believe he put the box under the mat and thought that would be a thief deterrent. I guess hope really does spring eternal.

Cute boots! I bought the shorter ones in brown suede about a month ago. Smoochy doesn't like them. So I told him I wouldn't make him wear them.

What box are y'all talking about? All I see is your welcome mat Jameil.

LOL...your post man is crazy. What in the world? That mat only drew attention to the box.

I love the boots and so wish I could pull off flat boots, but they look a hot mess on me.
