Table for One: Back Forty West

As Louis CK said in his MSG show, if you're sitting next to a person at a restaurant who's alone, that person is listening to your conversation. I have sat next to countless first dates and other configurations of people making inane conversation. My bf KH said I should start a blog called "Table for One." Well since I already have a blog, I am instead going to start a series with said title. It will be like an OH Facebook post, only longer. Be careful what you say, people of NYC, because I'm listening and taking notes on my phone.

Back Forty West, at the bar, two female friends:

I've never been like this I'm always like oh I don't care about this guy. (They started dating two months ago but were friends in high school.)

I remember seeing you the day we met at penn and I had just gone out with him the night before. (Regarding her ex boyfriend who she mentioned three times, even though she's head-over-heels about new guy re: above quote.)

I love your hair, it's reverse ombré. Wait, what? I thought ombré was light at the top and dark on the bottom. Is it? Oh yeah, ok.

Business Shorts

Ok ladies, let's band together and stop the shorts-wearing madness shall we? Twice this week I've witnessed women with handbags that hang down farther on the leg than the length of the shorts. Also a tip for those of you who can't stop buying and wearing shorts: if you have to reach in between your legs to yank them down periodically, yeah, they don't fit you properly. And lastly, don't wear shorts to the office.

Nordstrom Rack Attack: "Worn and Refinished"

My lovelies. I may be way older than I was when I first launched this blog, and I may have veered way off the retail shopping deals track upon which this masterpiece was originally launched. But, that does not at all mean that when I experience an injustice, triumph or just plain old cool thing in the world of shopping I won't share it with you. In fact, I'm probably even more motivated to do so now than ever.

And so it is that I warn you of the "worn and refinished" status of some of what seem like the hottest deals in shoes at Nordstrom Rack. Months ago, I was shocked and thrilled to find a pair of trendy black ankle boots at the NR in Union Square, Manhattan, that were priced so low it would have been stupid for me not to buy them--$35!! Granted, I spied the note on the price tag that these boots had been worn before...after I bought them, but they still had the tags so I could very well have returned them, of course I didn't...Well after just a couple of jaunts out in the boots, the zipper on one of them straight up broke. Ok, no big deal, I thought, I should have expected that.

So now I find myself once again in a predicament. I bought a hot hot pair of DVF flats at the NR in Danvers, MA. Only after (fool! Rookie mistake made again, no less) I bought them did I realize that they are worn and refinished, too.

Will I learn my lesson and simply return these beauties? Should I? I am on the fence. But I can rest assured that at least I informed my public. May you learn from me.
