I know, I know...here I go again with the shoes. What can I say? I'm a fan.
These may be my favorite pair of shoes. My tall brown boots.
But I don't think anyone can truly understand my love for these boots unless they understand the trials and tribulations associated with them.
First of all, I spent an exorbitant amount of money on them, and most likely had to pay them off over several months. I had a small moment of mourning today when I realized that it will be MANY years before my husband will allow me to spend hundreds of dollars on one pair of boots again. (Plus, with the whole reproducing thing, those hundreds of dollars will probably have to go to the kids.)
But I'm getting a little off track here- you get it, the boots were expensive. So I'm committed to the boots because I spent a lot of money on them. And I LOVE THEM.
How committed you might be asking yourself? How much do I really love the boots?
Well, you know how you have that pair of jeans that you have to lay down flat on your back to zip? These boots are those jeans for me. The boots may have gotten a little tight in the calves after all these years.
Picture this- I have a special piece of twine- my brown boot zippin' twine-that I keep on my dresser. I must thread said twine through the zipper on the boots, and pull HARD on said twine in order to get the zipper up. No, friends, holding onto the zipper itself does not give me enough leverage to stuff my calves into my favorite boots. The special twine is NECESSARY.
And now I will go through the rest of the day with the circulation in my left leg seriously compromised. (For some reason, the right boot is more comfortable.)
Yes, friends, I LOVE THESE BOOTS.
