I believe I may have encountered a true Divine Intervention today.
And I need your help!!!
I'm a coxswain for the men's heavyweight rowing team here at Georgetown. We have morning practices and it's been pretty cold every morning.
I rowed in Florida all through high school and never had to deal with cold weather, so I am not adequately equipped with the proper gear.
I'm slowly accumulating the proper wardrobe, but my feet are still chilly!!! I typically wear sneakers on a normal day and LL Bean Bean Boots when it's rainy. I'm very anti-Ugg though. I think it has something to do with girls from high school wearing Uggs and denim skirts.
Today, I was shopping around Georgetown. I finally broke down and went to try on a pair of Uggs. I decided on a grey pair. I went to check out, but the salesman told me that it was declined. Um, yeah, notsomuch. Within thirty seconds of me beginning to freak out (even though I KNEW it was THEM, not me), I received an email on my crackberry informing me that there was suspicious activity on my card. Two seconds after reading the email, Bank of America called to confirm the weird charges.
Sure enough, the store had charged me FOUR times in FOUR states within seconds of ringing me up. I was SO thankful that BOA saved me! The lady was so helpful and cancelled my card. Luckily, there is a Bank of America right down Wisconsin, so I scooted over there and got a temporary card. Don't worry, the shopping continued at Vineyard Vines!
I'm considering this story a Divine Intervention for me to stay away from Uggs. But I still need to keep my feet warm!!!
What do you all think? Go with Uggs? Or something else? Or suffer? Ah! Help, please!
PS IF, and only IF, I actually get Uggs, I will only be wearing them for crew related purposes.
