Yeah, I wore a new pair of shoes once, because apparently I’d never done it before or so it seemed. It was on the same trip to Mayberry that where I got into my sports bra predicament. If you haven’t read that one, I promise I put everything as delicate as possible. 😉 It’s like I committed the unpardonable sin because I typed the word “bra” on social media. I digress.
Well the next morning I put on my brand spanking new tennis shoes. Sometimes when touring cities there is lots of walking, and I wanted to be comfortable. I had purchased the shoes some time before because my previous beloved shoes got paint splattered all over them. (That was another one of those days where EVERYTHING went wrong!) I chose this trip to debut my new shoes.
We ate lunch at the Loaded Goat, and we had just sat down to eat a delish Sonker dessert at Old North State Winery. So mind you, that it was the middle of the day, and I had done so much including taking a dancing lesson. As I sat down I said, “Wow, these are new shoes, and they are not comfortable. This one is really bothering me.” I was embarrassed to do this, but finally I gave in to my foot pain and figured oh well. Right there in the restaurant I took off my shoe and looked at it. In dismay I pulled out…the cardboard! I had worn my brand new shoes with the card board all day long.
I was so glad Jackie was sitting by me so I had a friend to laugh with. Seriously! Who does this? I mean I’ve forgotten to take tags off clothes and worn them, but wearing the cardboard in the shoes was a first even for me.
