Saturday’s the girl and I spend time together. We call it “Spill Your Guts Saturday”. It is our ‘thing’.
This past Saturday, we went shoe shopping. I haven’t been shoe shopping with her in years. My mom has taken her, or she has just plucked a pair of flip-flops off the shelf at Stuffmart, but Saturday, let me tell you, we went shoe shopping! The girl awakened the Emelda Marcos in me. The longing of nice shoes, pretty shoes, every day shoes, flat shoes, heels and just because shoes.
The girl tried on just about every shoe in her size.
She tried on flats.
She tried on boots.
She tried on open toe heels.
She tried on fancy schmancy shoes.
She tried on strange shoes that have no category.
She even tried on Barbie shoes.
I even joined in on the fun, because for the first time in almost 16 years, I found a store that carries fun shoes in a size larger than 9.
And for the first time in a very long time, I didn’t feel old, or frumpy, or fat. Just pretty.
Strange what a nice pair of shoes will do for you.
Which pair is your favorite? The girl purchased 2. Which pairs do you think she got?
