These Shoes Aren't Made for Walking
By robs on Nov 16, 2008
A couple weeks back, I received a justified reprimand from a friend of mine. We were on the way to an event, and she was dress very nicely, including a fancy pair of shoes. I was dressed not nearly as nicely, and in my usual comfortable pair of loafers. We were a little late, so my pace was a bit brisk.
The conversation went something like this:
"You know, these shoes aren't made for walking," said she. "What are they made for then," asked I. "The looking," said she, somewhat bewildered that I hadn't figured that out.
I must admit that it's been twenty years or so that I've gotten such reminders. There's just part of me that isn't willing to accept that someone would put something on their feet so willingly that would so limit their movement in such a drastic way.
In any event, I will try to be more observant and more understanding in the future.
