My feet hurt. You’d think after walking through airports all day, this wouldn’t surprise me. Here’s the thing. I’ve worn the same brand of shoes for the past five years. When my old pair got worn out and my daughter said Marshall’s had them in stock, I had her grab some.
They are not the same. Hurt. Pain. Misery.
So while we were in Tennessee, I decided. NEW SHOES, baby.
But hee’s the thing. I don’t like shoes. I’m a bit royal in my shoe preferences. Way back a few hundred years ago, my great, great, great (all the greats) uncle, the Emperor of someplace or another had some really special clothes made. They helped determine who is a fool or not. Well, I really don’t want to know if I’m a fool, but I like my invisible shoes that tell me if I’m going anywhere today or not.
If I can’t see them, then I’m not going anywhere. If I can, then I am. But here’s the thing. I prefer the invisible ones. While I don’t think feet are very pretty, I do love knowing that I get to stay home and OUT of shoes.
In other words, I don’t like wearing shoes. I own about three pair, I think. One of which I’m getting rid of next time I find them in the closet. So now we’re back down to two… Shoes really aren’t my jam. Not even toe jam. 😉
What’s all this shoeness? (and why on earth is this post so late?) Well, today is my day to help celebrate the release of Rachel Skatvold’s latest book in the Independence islands series!
