What Were You Thinking???

The Rogue Speaks:

I know I am getting old when it takes me more than two days to recover from Holidazzle! I haven't even finished reading all the offerings from Thursday, and it's Sunday! My offering for Jenny's Saturday Centus is kinda sorta true, but not all the way true. Here goes:

"An involuntary gasp of shock escaped my lips when I opened the shoebox and saw the pointy-toed shoes..."The grin on his face and the quizzical look in his eyes told me he was anxious for a response. I was speechless. Pointy toes? High heels? Where has he been for the last decade? All cruel shoes had been swept from my closet, never to be worn again in my lifetime. Had he not noticed my poor feet, and the horrible blisters and pain I had suffered? Did he forget about the surgeries and the months-long recoveries?

"I love to see you in fancy shoes! Try them on!!"

I stared at him in disbelief.

"You first," I replied.

I hope the shoes are in his size! Maybe he got them for himself???

Judie said...

I gave up cruel shoes a LONG time ago, much to Rod's dismay. Until he has walked with my bad feet, he just has no concept! If he got them for himself, I am sooooo out of here!!! (no chance!)

Judy said...

That's very funny. Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

I married a short man just so I would have a really good excuse to always wear flats!

faith said...

I'm with you on the cruel shoes! Thanks for the laugh! :)

I love that turning of the tables (well shoes!)

Viki said...

I can feel for you. Now I'm more into comfort than style. Although occasionally, I'll wear torture shoes for a wedding, ha.

Strummed Words said...

Ha, ha. That's a good one :) Can't remember when I wore really high heels, much less pointy toed ones.

Such a sad situation...men can be so clueless sometimes....truly liked your shoe story...thanks for commenting on my centus...

My daughter just bought a pair with six inch stiletto heels. Why would she subject herself to that kind of torture? Or maybe it's torturing someone else she has in mind.

Judie said...

My feet are soooo bad. Pisces people tend to have foot issues. I had to wear a higher heel to a party last night, and my feet screamed so loud that all the guests heard them! Plus, my balance is so bad that I was constantly grabbing people for support! "What are you doing?"asked Rod. "I just grabbed him for support!" "Yeah, but did you have to grab him THERE?" (just kidding!)

I loved the ending! I laughed out loud! :))

Bookie said...

Yes, men should try a lot of things that they think up for women! Great ending!!!!

Judie said...

Men should have to wear punitive underwear every once in a while. Remember the "teddy" that had snaps at the crotch? It was obviously designed by a man! And what about those slinky, cut-on-the-bias, silk numbers that show every single body flaw? Who actually sleeps in that stuff?

This is hilarious, Judie. They say it's the thought that counts. In this story, the thought was extremely clueless and stupid.
PS I didn't have it in me to do this week's Centus, perhaps because of my own blistered feet. xo

I am convinced that the same men who designed the mammogram machines also designed high heels, especially stiletto heels. Sadists, all!

I'll take a pair of Birkenstocks over pointy shoes any day! This is so well written, and the twist, well, it was just wonderful!

Namaste..........cj
