Feet. I bet you thought I was going to say mouth. That could be true, too.
What I really want to talk about are my shoes. I have shoes from over forty years ago. Why? Because I’m hard to fit.
I have big feet. I don’t like to go shoe shopping.
And if I find a reasonably priced shoe that’s relatively comfortable I try to buy pairs in various colors.
And in recent years I don’t buy high heels otherwise my feet hurt, my knees hurt and the knee bone’s connected to the thigh bone and the hipbone. Get the picture?
So my collection of shoes contains approximately 35 pairs of shoes: 8 pairs of flats, 15 pairs of sturdy heels, 3 pairs of boots and 5 pairs of dancing shoes including my tap shoes which I have not worn professionally for more than 2 decades. Seriously, am I nuts?
I am going to shuffle off by saying I think that Charlie has more shoes than I. His shoes could be worn through to his foot but he would try to get just one more wearing out of them. I might need to sneak some of them into the “to-go” pile.
I need to let go of these shoes that just aren’t comfy. I’ll never wear them more than a minute so why store them?
And for all you lucky girls with average size, easy-to-fit feet, well, count your blessings.
