A Shoe Fairy Tale

Once upon a time in the land of terrible ball teams(Reds and Bengals) there lived a fair maiden(a fairly old maiden). She loved to run her errands in her leopard print flip flops. They went everywhere with her, to the grocery, to the bank, to Starbucks, everywhere. They were comfy and cute and since she thought her feet were the only things that looked good these days, they made her feel good.

But alas, the winds of change were blowing in the air and it became cold and her feet were not happy running errands in flip flops and she had to put the pretty leopard print flip flops away for awhile and get out the dreaded winter shoes. It was a sad, sad day in the fairly old maiden's household. :-)

THE END

Hahaha! I feel for you Hon. I nearly froze my toes off the other night cause out of habit I put on my very favorite old blue/green croc sandals.

First of all....Fairly old maiden, my hiney!!!! Since we're probably around the same age (heck I might be older), you are NOT old! Cute fairy tale though and sad, but true. I'm sitting here in my flip flops right now, but I know our days together are numbered. :-(

Hey, you've been boo-ed by me so come by when you can.

Hugs!
