Deep thoughts about cute shoes - 靴に関する深(くな)い考え。


I had a lovely lunch at P.F. Chang's yesterday (it's not the greatest restaurant on the earth, but hey, it has a gluten-free menu) and happened to walk through the adjacent Nordstrom. There, I realized how much I loved shoes. Just the sight and smell (yes, smell. I think it's leather and glue) excited me. It's a good thing I was in a hurry to get to a doctor's appointment.

I know I'm supposed to have deeper reasons, but is it so bad if one of my motivations for getting better was to be able to wear cute shoes again (without hurting too much)?

昨日は楽しくP.F.チャングで昼食を食べさせていただき
(おすすめのレストランという訳ではないけれどグルテンフリーの
メニュー
がある!と聞いたので)、すぐ隣のノードストロムの中を
通り抜ける機会がありました。

そして気付いたのは、はあ私って靴が好きなのね~ということ。
視覚に入ってきて、匂い(そう匂い。革と靴に使うのりかなあ)を
嗅いだだけで、うわぉ見たい触りたい!と興奮してしまった・・・。
(お医者さんのところに行くのに急いでてよかった。)

もっと意義のある理由があるべきなのはわかるけど、
良くなりたいと思う理由のひとつが
(ひどく痛いことなく)「またかわいい靴を履きたい」って
いうのはダメかな~。 (-^〇^-)

I don't think it's a bad reason at all! A lot of us girls enjoy looking cute and if that is somehow taken away, we want to get it back. Believe me....I KNOW about the whole cute shoe thing. I have never been able to wear cute shoes longer then the amount of time it takes to walk from the car to the table at a restaurant. All my shoes are manly and worn and kind of ugly. I would love to be able to just slip on any pair of shoes painlessly. It would bring joy to my life.

:-) I knew it wasn't just me!!! (And I bet you work around cute shoes, working in a boutique.)

I wish we could have shoe parties, where we get to wear a bunch of cute shoes, and people carry us around so we don't have to walk in them :P
