Black goes with everything

I am cut out for institutional living. It is one of the reasons I was so very happy at the BBC. My car is now back on the road (more of this later) and I could have driven to the mall myself, but when I heard Duke Diet and Fitness Center were offering an outing last night I signed up to join the others on the mini-bus.

Miss Dallas was particularly excited, for she loves to shop and intended to hit the sales hard. I went to the Apple store and bought an armband to carry my iphone. This way I can use a pedometer app to count my daily steps. The armband looks like a blood pressure cuff crossed with some kind of militia paraphenalia. It is instantly noticeable.

“What have you got on?” said Miss Dallas as she loaded a suit bag, and two large carrier bags on to the back of the bus. I explained and finished with “and I don’t need to tell you how important it is to accessorize”

“Oh I know” said Miss Dallas “and black goes with everything…”

Today is a beautiful day and so I plan to go for a walk after I go to the gym. Today I WILL walk 10,000 steps.
