Shoe what?

Thursday, January 03, 2008

When I was in University (well I still am technically, but I digress...) I worked part-time in a shoe store. Every now and then a gentleman would come in the store. We all knew this man; he dressed very well, in a dress coat and he always had on a tie. His hair was greying slightly and he gave the impression of a very clean-cut businessman. The only odd thing was his choice of footwear. He wore only women's shoes. Size 10. Preferably stilettos and hopefully something in patent leather. Red was always a favourite. And he came and purchased such shoes without a hint of embarrassment. Like this was a perfectly normal thing for him to do.

So I wonder if his mum was someone like me, who told her son that wearing fluffy and feminine footwear is perfectly acceptable. This was the babe's choice this past weekend. Today he wore black patent leather tap shoes....

    I love this story! How much fun that must have been. How did you keep a straight face when he came in the store?

    Very cute blog site and story.
    I'm in my 50's and my wife still gets mad at me when I wear my furry slippers out of the house :o)

    If a person can't have a sense of humor and play with violating social norms he/she is missing out on some of the joy of life.

    It is tragic that there are so many sickies in the world that have no judgement on respecting appropriate personal boundaries that every deviation from social norms is suspect of being deviency. I say "whooopie" to pick slippers.

    Since this is my first experience with any "blog", since I stumbled onto this site accidentally, I don't know if it is acceptable to ask a totally unrelated question, but you can tell me if so. I have a business web site that has gotten only a few hits in a year. How in the world did you set up your blog site so that it popped up near the top of the list when I simply googled "Zed Canada Number"?
    Also, is it possible to send an email message to the creator of a blog? And if so, how is that done? And is there any danger in putting my own email address in a blog posting in order to get more direct responses?
