I'm always wanting a new pair of shoes. Drives my husband nuts because he says I already have 300+ pairs. If I show him a pair of shoes I'm dying to have, he always says, "Don't you own a pair just like that?"
Besides, no matter how much we weigh, shoes always fit. I believe that women love shoes because we can go up and down and as long as the shoe fits, we're doing just fine!
But I did discover recently that perhaps, just maybe, I might own too many shoes. Is that even possible? I'm wanting a pair of leopard pumps. Something tasteful, not platform, muted tones, suede maybe, high heeled...
I spent weeks scouring the internet comparing different styles and brands. I almost pulled the trigger and bought a pair online, several times actually. Then one evening a picture comes to mind of the perfect pair. I know exactly what I want, but where to begin? As the days stretch on and the picture becomes more clear, a little tingle begins in the back of my brain.
Do I already own these shoes?
I went through the closet, the garage, the drawers in the bed, but can't find the shoes I'm thinking of anywhere. But the more time that passes, the more I know the exact pair of shoes I've been thinking of. I have a perfect image and can even see them on my feet, but they aren't here. Surely I wouldn't have gotten rid of the perfect pair of leopard pumps?
About three weeks pass and I have to take the cat to the vet. He knows and is running and hiding and I'm moving furniture to try and catch him. Under my bed, where I store empty shoe boxes, he darts. I start pulling out boxes until I can't reach any more, he continues to the middle. I get the broom and pull more out boxes when lo and behold, there are the leopard shoes.
Still in the box. Never worn.
I'll never admit to my husband I own so many shoes I don't even know where they all are! I'd rather die. But this presents the newest problem: To find the perfect dress to go with the perfect shoes.....
