Defining Myself by Shoes
I have lots of shoes, in fact, I have so many shoes that my wife had to put up one of those hanging organizer thingies in the closet (which most of my shoes don’t fit in, because I have great big Hobbit feet) but predominantly I wear one of five pairs; white sneakers, Wolverines (boots), brown loafers, or my black wingtips. (Six, if you include my fuzzy slippers!)
I just realized that I can totally define my circumstances based on what shoes I’m wearing at the time…
Slippers = I’m at home (or maybe on an early morning run to the store.)
Sneakers or Wolverines = I’m somewhere casual and comfortable, ie: work, church, a friend’s house, etc.
Brown loafers = I’m trying to make a good impression
Black Wingtips = Someone died.
Now, that sounds funny, but it’s really pretty close to the truth 99% of the time!
Can anyone relate?
PS – Barefoot = I’m in bed.
