so today i was at target over lunch. and i was looking at nail polish. see, there's a work christmas party coming up. and while i'm not for sure going, if i do show up, so will my toes. and they need some polish. so, i'm standing there, toiling over the colors. hating the fact that women must wear things like dresses and peep-toe shoes and manicured hands to events. anyway, usually at this point, i just open a bunch of colors and put a swipe on several nails to test the difference. but i had to go back to work and didn't want to look ridiculous. which is when i noticed that someone had taken the nail polishes and painted little swipes of color on the display that hangs from the shelf. "of course," i thought to myself. "what a great idea...it's even white so i can get a good idea of what color it will be on my hands!" so, i began marking. color after color. until i stopped suddenly and realized what i was doing.
