It's one of those that sneaks up on you. You're minding your own business and there it is tapping you on the shoulder. The good thing about this addiction is that I love it! I love my addiction. At least this one isn't bad for me, won't contribute to bad health or make me lose my friends. My addiction (at least for this entry) is shoes. I actually just spent the last few minutes taking pictures of my new shoes to share with you. That's how much I love them!
I hate it when you love the shoes in the store and you get them home and say, what the hell was I thinking? But not these. These are the "pizza toe" variety of shoe as my friend Stacey likes to call them. The ones that you could actually injure someone with. The kind you can squash bugs in a corner with. Or just look totally fabulous with! Just when our feet regained conciousness from back in the 80's with the pointy toed shoes, they're back again!
You may see my shoe addiction as wasteful, frivolous, ridiculous, or stupid. And, that's o.k. because you only know half the story. I have 37 pairs of sneakers, sandles, flip flops etc. hanging on my shoe rack at the moment. And, that's just the summer shoes. Can I tell you how scary it is when the shoe rack finally snaps in the middle of the night? Very! It's very scary!
Doesn't it just make you feel better to go out and buy something for yourself? And don't you feel just a little bit better about yourself the day you wear the new item? I say spend it if you've got it...and if you haven't got it well, that's what charge cards are for!
