Yesterday my blog got more traffic than it has ever gotten before. I do not know what yesterday's guest post was about (and believe me, it was a HERCULEAN EFFORT not to look. Seriously, harder than Weight Watchers). But I do know that I am THE ONLY PERSON IN THE WORLD who is still in the dark, because the rest of the Internet visited my blog yesterday, prompted by Swistle.
The funny thing is, usually I don't even LIKE surprises. But this one? People keep telling me what a great surprise it is, and being all cute and sly about it, and I am so delighted that there is a surprise! I am just really, really curious about what it is!

My friend was super sweet and tried to convince me that I could totally carry them off, but I knew better, and so the shoes went back on the shelf.
Lesson learned: There are some things that I just can NOT pull off. Let's add to the list: aviator sunglasses, criss-cross wraparound tops, baseball caps (I get the puffiest case of hat head), and true red lipstick.
What about you? What are some of the things that sound good in theory, but make you look or feel like a complete and utter fool?
