Post Traumatic Stress has started to infiltrate my shopping (and I haven’t left my neighborhood in days)
Ever since last week’s epic storm, I’ve become something of a hermit.
Sure, I go out — I hosted my pop-up beauty stoop sale the other day, I’ve volunteered, I went to the blood drive. I even have been to restaurants and did some local shopping — but everything I’ve done, for a week now, is within a four block radius.
It’s true that the transportation situation this past week had made it harder to travel to the other boroughs (or, some may say, impossible) – but also, there’s something about the scary surroundings that make you want to stick very close to home. If anything was to happen — and the weather reports say something scary is brewing as soon as tomorrow — you don’t want to have to travel to take cover.
But eventually I do need to branch out — in fact, I have a few biz trips coming up — and the winter chill is coming. If my tootsies are going to freeze, they may as well be protected — and these Thinsulate-lined Sperry Top-Sider Alpine Waterproof Boots ($170) look pretty cute with my favorite new winter coat. Think …honky tonk chic?
(More on that very soon!)
I don’t think that’s remotely a thing, honestly. But it SHOULD be.
