Shoes (posted by Ann)
The Weaver girls have always had a thing about shoes, and I have participated in that "thing" enthusiastically over the years. Don has enabled my obsession by building shoe racks and buying shoe boxes, and I must have between 50 and 75 pairs of shoes. It's been higher, but I've been culling lately.
So, on this girls weekend I went on, we were (of course) talking about shoes. I know men think we talk about them, but there's actually more action on the shoe front. I had just purchased the Gucci boots, so we started talking about how much we spend on shoes and how many pairs we have. So I gave out my numbers, which were toward the high end. One of the women said she only had thirty pairs so we decided we were going to take her shopping. She's led a deprived life, obviously.
Then we got to Kathy.
"So, how may pairs do you have, Kathy?"
"Oh, around 250."
"250? For real?"
I was shaken. My standing was in jeapordy. Then she let the final blow fall.
"I just love shoes. When I get dressed in the morning, I decide which shoes I want to wear and then pick clothes to go with them."
I have been put in my place. I guess that Weaver shoe thing is really not so excessive after all.
We're leaving this evening for spring break vacation in the Turks & Caicos, which we thought about early on and then decided we couldn't do it, and came back to at the last minute and made it work. We'll be diving and beaching for a week, and I'll take pictures so you can see how it is.
