Last night I bought me some new shoes... $28 Walking Shos at Kohl's, baby! I suffered through my previous shoes, a pair of brown Converse, for far too long. They looked good (even had a teenager at church comment on them... positively, I might add) and felt okay at the store. But my old feet need a shoe with arches and ones that won't cause the back of my left heel to bleed (easily remedied with a band aid or piece of medical tape) or make my feet ache EVERY SINGLE DAY. But you know me... I'm just a slave to fashion and so I put up with them just so I could look ultra-hip. My feet were miserable but my social life was swingin'!
Now I'm back to dork status. No longer will hipsters with the moused-up intentionally slept-in hair speak to me. No longer will I get invited to swanky parties by the in-crowd. No longer will I move to the front of the lines at Aldis. I'm just a commoner now. At least my feet are happy.
