This morning my husband emailed me to tell me that these were on sale and didn't they look comfortable?
You'll have to excuse the stunned look on my face... I can remember the time that I caught my foot in the door going to work and tore the strap on my favorite pair of heels. I was running late and had to rush to work so I had no choice but to limp to the shoe store across the street and buy shoes on my break. I tried to find a very inexpensive pair. When I came home he zeroed in my feet immediately and in his best Spanish Inquisition voice asked "New Shoes?". I hurried to explain what had happened and how the shoe was flopping around on my foot and how I might have broken my ankle if I hadn't replaced the shoes (now in the garbage at work after a suitably mournful ceremony). He looked at me like I was the most frivolous woman on the planet and then grabbed my hand and pulled me down the driveway to the back yard saying "wait til you see what I bought today!". It happened to be a 3 foot deep above ground pool which it turns out was a great investment because we used it for like 8 years.
But the image of him looking at my $19.95 bargain replacement heels like I'd squandered our nest egg has stayed with me for all these years... in a humorous way! To have him sending me shoe sales via email because he is (gasp) shopping on line... I'm almost (but not quite) speechless!
If you do read this beloved, I mean it in the most harmless way. You're charming and complex and I never know what you will do next. And you look great in shades!
