The Story of Shoes

Is anyone else ever fascinated by shoes? I mean aside from the female's natural tendency to buy excessive pairs? Because I find myself walking around looking at people's shoes more than looking at faces. I think shoes can tell alot about a person. Not to say that we should start judging people by their shoes because if that were the case, I might not have any friends. But seriously, think about it, because shoes tell a story. If my shoes could talk, here's what I think they would say...

I like to be comfortable
No I do not feel like matching today
I enjoy stepping in puddles
Bright colors on feet hurt my eyes
Heels are not welcome in Elyse's closet
Polka dots can be worn with anything
I'm lucky shoes even got put on this morning
Yes I am a nerd, and proud of it

Anyways, next time your sitting in a place full of people, just take a minute to look around at the shoes. Imagine their stories, imagine the places they've been and the distances they've walked. Shoes go wherever we go, and they are a completely objective third party without any opinion in the matter. :-)

I only wear ballet flats, but I'm a terrible dancer. What does that say about me? Also, I prefer red shoes, but I know that comes from my love affair with the Wizard of Oz.

Ha. I laugh at this because I was just thinking the other day that I am in desperate need of some new shoes. I wear the same like 3 pairs over and over and they are trashed. My shoes must say that I'm too poor to buy new ones so I insist on abusing them.

Oh, I love you too. Like probably more than is appropriate. :)
