Don't Lower Your Standards

Two years ago, I decided I really wanted red shoes. They are harder to find than you think. Most of them are patent leather or childish looking. I wanted something sexy and sophisticated.

I’d like to say that I found a great pair in the first store I looked in, but no such luck. Instead, I looked for red shoes in lots and lots of stores. I also looked at several online sites, but nothing quite suited me. Of course, a few came very close, however, I just couldn’t lower my standards. Knowing how much I wanted them, if I compromised my criteria, I’d be unhappy once I brought them home.

You’ll be happy to know that my diligent efforts and long wait have been rewarded. I found exactly the perfect pair of red shoes. When I saw them in the store, I let out a little sound of joy. I couldn’t wait to try them on, and when I did, I was elated. They fit me exactly right. Just to make sure, I strolled around the store for about 15 minutes before buying them. They are perfect for me.

I brought my gorgeous new red shoes home and put them in their own special shoe cubby in my closet. Sometimes, I just put them on and walk around the house for fun. As I walk the runway between my bedroom and the kitchen, I make my dogs tell me what they think. Of course, having great style themselves, they agree that my red shoes are absolutely spectacular and I wear them well.

Buying the perfect shoes is pretty much the same as finding the right guy. Sometimes you find the perfect man the first time out, and sometimes you have to shop for a very long time and try dozens and dozens on for size. However, it’s important not to lower your standards, because once you get him home, it’s a hard to take a ill-fitting dude back. In fact, it’s much easier to return a pair of shoes that pinch your toes than a guy that get’s on your last nerve.

I've never had a shoe get on my last nerve, but then I have neuropathy in my feet and don't feel everything any more.

If you have a sexy red bra to go with that, though, you can sit on my face and do what you will! Va va voom, Mama!

I had shiny patent leather red shoes in college. What possessed me?!

Yeah. Make sure you get a whole shoe and not just a heel.

LOL at what Popeye said! And to add to the pun-ishment, make sure he has a great sole. :)

Lovely picture. You should buy two pairs. Like men, they wear out.

Forget 2 pair; they'll never wear out unless you decide to kick a entire football team to death!

That reminds me of my favorite bad pickup line, which is "Nice shoes. Wanna fuck?" I miss you.
I never hear from you anymore! Oh maybe cause I'm in stealth mode.

If you click your heels together three times, do they take you back to Kansas?

Mmmm. Toe cleavage. I've never owned a pair of red shoes, and I have as much trouble finding the right shoes as I had trying to find the right guy. I gave up a long time ago.

Oh...I seriously love them...very Maryjanie & elegant...where did you find them? Can I covet them too?

Perfect shoes make me forget about unperfect mates, they just do.

I love this post!!!!!! I agree that it pays off to be diligent in your efforts to find the perfect shoe, the perfect pair of jeans or the perfect man. I got the shopping thing down pat, but I'm still working on the guy thing.
