August 3: SOS

I made a huge error in judgement and wore closed heels on a humid, sweaty summer day.

3pm - Starbucks Barista showed mercy. Provided first-aid kit bandages for my blistered heels.

4pm - Ditto for the Barista at the next Starbucks.

5pm - The drugstore cashier forgave me $0.57 on the bandages and told me I could pay her back next time.

My predicament, it turns out, was not nearly as bad as that of my colleague's. She taped her blistered toes in transluscent Scotch Tape! She went into raptures when she saw the box of bandages.

I am now wearing my new Havaianas.
