So, last week at this time, forestcats and I were at Del Mar Racetrack with the family, celebrating my mother's birthday. At one point, while we were awaiting my aunt and uncle's arrival, I was crowd-watching, and I saw a woman, dressed to the nines in a black dress and hat, wearing orange pumps and jewelry. I was astonished to see, as she ascended a circular staircase, that she was walking up, leaving her heel off the stairstep! Who knew???
