Riding Horses On Thin Ice

On Thursday I tried to get some errands done since I had half of the day off. Instead of enjoying my vacation day by doing something fabulous, I went to the DMV. I went to 2 DMV's actually. The first one said their printer was down and couldn't process my application so I had to drive out to the next closest one. It was only about 20 minutes away and I really wanted to get this marked off my list because I won't have another day off for a while. While I was on the road I won some tickets on the radio to a show on NYE night. That soothed the burn of having to drive a county over to go to the DMV on my day off. I checked in, got my number and began my long wait in the gray, drab lobby. An older man sat down next to me and told me he really liked my outfit, the colors and my dotted tights. He said it reminded him of the way his sisters dressed in the 50s. We talked for a little while and I found out he had 6 sisters. He also said he would drive them crazy by telling them that while their skirt was gorgeous but their hair was terrible when they asked him how it looked. He said they ran like crazy back to the mirror to fix it and ended up teasing it higher and higher. After he had left I heard a teeny tiny frail man telling the receptionist that he was getting really excited to go to a dance on New Years Eve night. He said "There will be lots of ladies there. Two for every man!" The receptionist (being a man himself) said that it sounded like fun. That little old man left the DMV with the biggest smile on his face.

Check out this sweet little vintage horse tshirt from my fellow blogger friend Skippy Haha. She has her own etsy shop chocked full of vintage tee's and tops for men & women. Plus other fantastically cool stuff.
And just in case you can't picture yourself wearing the tee shirt, you can see what Mary Lou Retton or Tom Selleck look like wearing them
