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....
