One of These Things is Not Like the Other

While in Amarillo, my mom and sisters bought matching boots. We are weird like that. Always saying, "I love your ____. I am going to go get me one." Or, "I got a new ____. You have to go get one." In other words, You won't let me wear yours or you can't wear mine. Either way, we dress alike. So while in Dillard's we all got pajamas. Those we didn't match. Then Amy went to the shoe department.

She tried on these incredible black yummy boots. They were on sale and since she was at the time, wearing MY black boots, she bought her a black pair. And I wanted a new brown pair. So I try on one, love them, thrilled they fit over my freakishly enormous calves, and tell the lady I want them. (Please note I tried on ONE boot.) I never even checked the giant box she brought out and I paid for. And because it warmed up while I was there, I never wore them.

Until yesterday. It was freezing cold, all blustery outside with drizzle and strong winds. I had to work. And I was sick. So, I decide to take the giant box down and take my boots out. I am giddy to wear them and thinking I already feel better, realizing they have some magical healing power.

How cute are these boots?!

The left boot is so perfectly fluffy

The right one has issues. No perfect fluffiness noted. In fact, it looks like a fashion-conscious mouse have gnawed herself a new hat and scarf with my fluffy border.

I screamed and cussed (not real bad, Mom). Okay, bad. And suddenly felt a fever come upon me and started coughing uncontrollably, because yelling so vehemently always make choke. That meant I couldn't be all cute in my new boots. And worse, I would have to fight my way to the return counter in Dillards in Cedar Hill which makes me want to just pass out.
As difficult as it was, I stifled the thought of trimming the left fluffy boot irratically to match the right one just to avoid that freakin' store. So, today I have to see more patients, spread my love and germs and go wait in line at the damn mall. Even though I know it will be a different one, I am so coughing in the shoe girl's face.

I would so trim up the left one to match right one or is it the other way around? Any way furry one would match non furry one...call it a day and good to go!
Life is too short to stand in the mall!
Enjoy those great boots while you can...some day you may have to wear orhtopedic shoes!!!!!

kel said...

Damn it.. and those boots are crazy cute!

Kristen said...

What cute boots..well one of them any way.

Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

Those are some cute boots. But, just in looking at the photo of the two of them you can see that one looks just, well, not right.

Debbie said...

Nope - back to the store they would go. That right one is just wrong. How did that ever sneak by inspector #7?

Julie said...

Yeah, I'd do a trim job as well. No fighting the crowds to exchange anything. Not worth it to me.

Hand me the scissors.

ann said...

AS IN MY BLOG TODAY,"LIFE JUST ISN'T PERFECT."DON'T IT JUST MAKE YA WANT TO CHEW NALIS?BUT,I DON'T THINK I'D WANT TO FACE THE MALL EITHER.NOW,YOU HAVE FIXED ME FOR THE DAY....I'LL BE SINGING THIS SONG IN MY HEAD ALL DAY.ONE OF THES IS NOT LIKE THE OTHER...LALALALA...ANN

Lori said...

That would totally piss me off! UGH. I don't envy you dealing with the return counter at this time of year. Make sure you take a picture of the shoe girl after you cough in her face.

Tiffany said...

LMAO I too would trim one up just to avoid the store.

They are super cute! And I can't wear boots because I have fat ass calves. Damn you skinny legged bitches!!

Chris said...

Doesn't that just tick you off, not inspecting everything you buy at the time you buy it. I do the same thing. Used to you weren't required to do that. Hope you are feeling better now.

Hugs,
Chris

AAARRRGGGHHH!!!!
I got home with a new pair of winter boots once only to find they where two different sizes....
I was ugly angry.

The hairy boot is VERY cute : )

georgie said...

the boots are cute BUT I was LOL and thought only you Jilly only you LOL

Wheezer said...

Awwww, Jill, you have a "special" boot! By taking it back are you sending a message that it isn't "special" enough? Don't be a hater!

Soxy Deb said...

LMAO@ Wheezer. Yeah! You cant return it just cause it's "different". That would be wrong. LOL

I would have absolutely freaked out. The clerk would not soon forget me. Actually all of Dillard's might remember me. There would be a poster at the front entrance.

Annie said...

That would have really ticked me off, too!

NucMEd is Hot said...

They are totally cute, but I would have blown a serious gasket. Good lucking finding another pair!

Deb said...

oh dear. it may be tempting to trim (or gnaw) down the fluffier one IF they don't have your size. have you considered that possibility? and don't forget to cough on everyone in the dang store. EVERYONE!

Megryansmom said...

Ughh I hate returns. As I look at 2 beautiful VS bras that don't fit, sitting here.

Amy Amy Bo Bamey said...

I agree trim it down and avoid the return. Cute boots, I need to get me some. I am so short though that I think I would look silly in cute boots like those.

dana wyzard said...

Here I sit, with TWO remote games bought from TWO different stores, and neither one worked. I'm wondering if it would be wasteful (yeah, I know the answer) if I just KEPT them and sneaked them out to the garbage.

On the other hand, if you're returning anything DO IT NOW. It will only get worse.

Now, since you're an RN I have a question of huge proportions: Whenever I've been in the hospital, a nurse would always end up checking my IVs and coughing/sneezing/breathing all over my incisions. Why aren't ya'll required to wear masks??????

Swirl Girl said...

they don't call them Uggs for nothing.

Jenni Jiggety said...

Those ARE cute boots! Sorry one is funky...

Dawn said...

WTH?!?! I'm laughing soooo hard!! Sorry! But, that's hilarious. You so know that lady screwed you over!! She wanted to get rid of THAT boot!!

Miss Anne said...

i heart the left boot!

i would raise some hell with the shoegirl... get yourself a new right one! :)

heck a new pair even!

:) xoxo

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

Go back to the store and buy another pair and maybe that pair will have a fluffy right and not so fluffy left and then you can give the perfect matching pair to your sis who would just love you for it, right???

Justine said...

Your right boot has the mange!!!!!!! Ewwwwwwwwww! Are you a doctor? Nurse? NP?

Justine :o )

Elaine A. said...

Damn child laborers.

I know that comment is very NON P.C. but I had to say it (obviously).

Hope your boots get "righted!" ; )

Bobbi Jo said...

Oh my those are so CUTE! I love them I want a pair. What size of shoe do you wear?
Of course here in Arizona I am still wearing flip flops and open toed shoes. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

nikkicrumpet said...

Sheeesh woman...you just aren't thinking clearly...that cold of yours has got your brain all a moosh! It's so easy to fix this. Just scour the neighborhood until you find someone with a pomeranian pooch...they are the perfect color and texture. Lure the little nugget over with a piece of cheese...take out the scissors and ever so gently trim said nugget up just a teeny bit...a little hot glue...and TADA! Good as new boot. Problem solved...no long lines.

Scary Mommy said...

Ugh, that is soooo annoying!!! I do love the boots. Er, boot. :)

Janie said...

I love me someathem boots!

(So. were the black ones the ones you had on yesterday, when that's all you were wearing? Heifer.)

Eudea-Mamia said...

If Cedar Hill weren't so damn far, I'd come stand behind you in line and cause some ruckus.

"I saw her in the parking lot with a pair of scissors - don't do it!"

Good blog fodder there.

Kritta22 said...

Wishing you a short line at the counter with a free sample stand of their new line of coco! (I know they don't have coco but I'm wishing here!)

Dee said...

Aw hope you get them exchanged with no problems at all! :) Here's wishing anyway.

binks said...

SON OF A #&$@@$%**$!!!
Cute or not, the defects must go. My head would be 'sploding right about now. Hurry to the store before the Christmas return rush hell.
