Depending on which dictionary you consult…
Def: to misfire, flub or otherwise bungle something
Def: to make a mess of, to fail, to go wrong
Either way, it pretty much sums me up lately.
I ruined my grey jeans over the weekend. And on Monday, I ruined my fancy, new grey leather Sigerson Morrison heels. Water splashed out from the sink and onto my right foot, staining the leather. This, after I treated them with leather protector and didn’t wear them all last week because of the rain. I mean, what’s wrong with me? They weren’t inexpensive shoes. Nor were the Robert Clergerie platforms I ruined after one wear. Then there are the eyeglasses and earrings I lost in Cannes. I’m feeling horribly clumsy and inept lately. Please, please, please, make the “rater” go away.
