wedgies and post-it notes

While standing in line at Brugger's Bagels waiting for my lunch the woman in front of me turned to look at me, this was her monologue to me...

Oh WOW!  I love your platforms!  It makes me want to go down to DSW to buy myself a new pair of shoes for spring.  {pause} You know platforms were in style in the 70s.  HA! and now they are back in style.  {looking again at my shoes} Oh wait.... they aren't called platforms anymore they are called wedgies.  I really like them.  Ohhhh... they are cork wedgies.  HA!  You can pin Post-It Notes to them to help you remember things!  Oh, and guess which country we get our biggest supply of cork from? {I didn't get a chance to even answer} before she said, PORTUGAL!  They grow cork trees there!

I didn't have the heart to tell her that they are called "wedges"  not "wedgies"

I plastered a smile on... once I got into my car I laughed all the way back to work, I laughed so hard I cried.
