Good morning! It’s Monday. We’ve had a busy weekend with (at least here in Our Town) some gorgeous weather and the opportunity for a sunburn. Note to self: take care what shirt you wear for the first sunburn of the season.
This week we’re talking shoes. I will refrain from composing an epic ode on the subject.
I will, however, share a lesson I learned many moons ago while wandering a shopping mall with a guy friend. He was drawn to the ‘cap’ store and I took the opportunity to open up on a monologue about how ridiculous it was that one guy requires so many different baseball caps.
The gentleman behind the counter looked at me and asked me how many pairs of shoes I had. After I told him he asked, “Surely that must be enough?” Of course I scoffed at the very notion (not seeing where this was going) and was rewarded with a curt, “Well, clearly for some men, baseball caps are the same as shoes for women. You can never have enough.”
Since then I have learned that as men mature, baseball caps are replaced with tools. Power tools. Hand tools. Tools that don’t fit in the house, the shed or the car. There can never be enough.
Sensible shoes are important. I understand this. When money is tight and the choice is between an awesome pair of red heels you’ll wear three times a year or a sensible pair of boots you can wear to work nearly all year, you must be sensible.
Red shoes and spring.
I’m a happy girl.
