Signs I am turning into a crazy person - Sao Paulo


I realize that most Brazilian women think I am a Fashion Aberration. I don't wear high heels, I wear comfortable jeans that allow me to breathe, and I rarely wear make-up. But I may have sunk to a new low today. I was at Fleury to get some lab tests done and got cute sock covers -- booties? -- when I took my shoes off. Now, nine hours after said exams a chicly dressed woman tells me that I have toilet paper in my shoes. No, I said primly, those are my sock covers. Doesn't everyone wear them in their shoes?

From October 4 through October 13, I will not have access to internet. All blog posts for these dates are “pre-recorded” and I will not be able to respond to any comments until October 14.

    I can't say I'm any clearer than I was before. :)

    1. hahahaha! Okay, yes, I did a terrible job of describing what those are. They are the little sanitary booties so you don't have to put your foot on the hospital or lab floor. Here is a blue example...mine were white!!
