That Heeling Spirit

6 Jun

I’ve just realized the secret to true happiness.

It’s not a man.

It’s not babies.

It’s a closet full of brand new shoes.

J, at last, I feel wholly fulfilled.

~Me to the BFF, all enlightened and aglow.

Her response:

You clown, you’ve been watching too much Sex & the City.


But you guys understand, don’t you?

Don’t you? 😦

    Is it possible to have enough shoes? :-/
    I hope that never happens 😀

    Absolutely, entirely, totally. Nothing that a new pair of heels cannot help feel better over! 🙂
    And if you, like me wore a humongous UK Size 41, then the pleasure of finding that perfect pair, is doubled 🙂

    Oh remember that line from ‘SATC’, that Carrie says to her boss: “Men I may not understand, but shoes, shoes I do.” 🙂

    M…: My life’s motto is “There’s no such thing as too many books, too many friends or too many shoes.” And I’m sticking to it.

    Roxana: Hon, my feet exist solely to make others feel better about theirs. I’m a 42. Now share my pain.

    dipali, Revathy, Mumbai Diva, Nino’s Mum, sukanya: I know I can count on you guys. Big love to all of you. 🙂

    DewdropDream: Oho, child. Those too.

    Anjali: Yes, yes, yes! 😀 So glad you brought it up.

    there’s nothing a new pair of shoes can’t fix. and that includes the pain from blistered feet 😀

    Tamanna: Cynthia Sylvia Stout, Lalitaji. 😛

    jp: If I ever write a Ph.D. thesis, I’m going to use this line and cite you.
