Too True Tuesday- The SHOES!


I was so excited that I would have something for this week's Too True Tuesday! In fact, the moment I told Lady the topic she said "You have to write about the shoes!"

Above, you see one of The Shoes- Black leather, zipper in the side, Dr. Scholl's insole I think this is the right shoe. It's on my pillow for its modeling debut. This is a comfortable shoe, albeit *very* plain.

I kid you not, I have had more than half a dozen pairs of these *identical* shoes bought for me by an Aunt I shall call T.

T and I were very close as I was growing up- She was my Other Mother. But I think in her mind I never got any older than 12. Anyway, she still does quite a bit for me.... But for a while we almost had a falling out because of The Shoes.

I was 18. Starting University. And T bought me Pair 1 of the shoes. Yay. They weren't for any special occasion other than the start of school. And I liked them.

Then I got an identical pair 3 months later for Christmas. Okay... Thanks T

Then I got a pair for my birthday, 6 weeks after Christmas....

Then I got a pair for starting my second year of University... I could now *interchange* these shoes.

I said to T. "I really appreciate the shoes, but I have enough pairs now, thank you!"

I got a movie for Christmas....

And then? For my birthday? You guessed it. Shoes.

THOSE I returned to the Mart of Walls.


(The pair featured here is the *newest* pair, given to me in July by, you guessed it, T. But at least they weren't for any occasion!)

That's so funny! I guess once you find the "perfect gift" for someone - stick with it!!!!

That is hystericall. Do you think T was suffering from early stages of Alzheimers or just really liked those shoes?
