Shoes, glorious shoes


What is it about women and shoes? We grant them totemic powers to transform ourselves and our moods. We will spend more money on shoes we will wear once than on a new kitchen appliance that will make life easier for years to come. And without consulting Consumer Reports.
There is an important event coming up next month and I have determined that for this event I need to have turquoise shoes with pointy toes, that in fact turquoise shoes with pointy toes will enhance the entire event in ineffable ways. High heels would be nice as well, especially as heels could shorten the current 14" gap between the top of my head and the top of CSB's head. The problem with high heels is balancing on them. So most likely the gap will remain and CSB will continue to have the best view of the top of my skull. The above shoes came in a large box from Zappos.com, and soon they will return to Zappos.com. (They don't fit, they look ridiculous and I can't walk in them.)Happily, Zappos has free shipping, to and from.
Meanwhile, I continue searching for turquoise shoes.

Ah ... I had turquoise silk shoes for New Years Eve many, many years ago. Memorable things happened that night! And it rained and it rained and it rained, and on New Years Day my feet were turquoise and the shoes were in the garbage.

To some, I am known as the Imelda Marcos of sensible shoes . . .
