I was minding my own business the other day, just checking for blog updates, when Lori Greenberg’s Gal Lori blog teased me with this entry. After wholeheartedly agreeing with her on the whole morning person thing, I made my way over here and, thankfully, had finished my coffee or it would have spewed across the monitor as I got halfway down the page. How did I get to this stage of my life and not know about Margot?
“Hi, I’m Lisa and I’m a recovering shoe addict.” (In my single days, I could scope out a shoe sale and justify 3 or 4 pair of shoes in a lunch hour outing easy.) Now, I’m barefoot most days with shoes (sandals and slides, really) collecting under my desk from where I slip them off as soon as humanly possible. But Margot’s entry had me laughing out loud (not that it would bother anyone, I work alone, but the dogs look at me strangely). I knew about only one of the three kinds of shoes she described. I’m trying to remember if I ever had a pair that qualified for the other two labels.
I’m afraid my shoe categories have dwindled to:
“Aaah, almost as good as barefoot” (the slip-on sandal or thong)
“I know it’s winter, but I hate having my foot completely covered” (the slip-on clog of sorts)
“How in heaven’s name did I ever walk in these?” (anything with a heel more than 2 inches)
Trust me…you’ll only see these in my house on the TV when “Dancing with the Stars” is on!
