Did you have a nice trip?


Yeah, so, the other night I went shopping at Macy’s in Union Square, where I learned that jeans that are not from Old Navy are ridiculously expensive.

Me: “These are nice.”

Jeans: “I’m a $149.”

Me: “Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahah!”

Seriously, though. I did find some great jeans that are not $149 at Macy’s, and they make me feel like a million bucks.

After shopping, I walked down to the BART station to head home. I was behind this couple who were pretty drunk. They were kinda stumbling into each other, and they were watching a video on his phone and laughing.

“They should be careful,” I thought. “They are going to trip.”

And then – BOOM! – I tripped.

I didn’t trip and look all amazing like Jennifer Lawrence did at the Academy Awards. I looked like this:

The drunk couple turned around: “OH MY GOD! Are you OK?”

Me: “I’m fine. Thank you.”

Them: “Are you sure?”

Me: “I’m embarrassed but fine. Thank you.”

Then about five more people approached me, “Are you OK?” I think I even heard an “Are you OK, ma’am?” which makes me feel even worse.

I hadn’t even had a drink, but they all thought I was drunk. Not drunk, just clumsy.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. Pro tip: try on the expensive jeans at Macy’s. Figure out which ones make you look amazing. Then go home and buy them from the company’s web site when they go on sale.
    I got some really great 7 for All Mankind jeans for under $100 that way. They’re the only things I own that make me want to walk around going “Hey, look at my ass!”

  2. Sara, that is awesomely smart advice that I will absolutely put into practice! Thank you!

  3. You’ll be happy to know that if ever I see you trip, rather than call you ma’am or rush to your aid, I will simply laugh.

  4. Any chance we can get video of that from thr BART security cameras?
