On Monday I quickly learned that the ankle length skirt with very stretchy waistband that I'd put on in the morning was a big fashion no-no when needing to cross a swiftly moving river of water.
The water instantly grabbed at the bottom of the skirt, pulling it. Without a snug-fitting waistband, this meant the skirt started coming OFF. Just what I needed with everything else that was happening. So, now I had the baby, a backpack, a trader joe's bag (complete with computer cord dangling out of it) and a skirt that I was trying to keep from getting pulled off of me. Perfect :)
Lesson learned, next time I'm in a flood I will definitely pick out a different ensemble.
