Oh my, another post - new shoes.....

You can really tell that it slow here at work when I hit three posts in one day!!!

I just got some new shoes delivered that I ordered last week. I wear exclusively low rise Converse Chucks. The reason being that they are comfortable and they lace across the top of my foot. I need that due to the fact that a little over 4 years ago while travelling in the south of France I broke my foot in Monaco. What happened was I was walking up from the yacht basin towards the casino and kept saying to myself "don't trip, don't trip"...(the streets and sidewalks were torn up and being repaired for the upcoming car races) and so of course I tripped. When I stood back up and put the my right foot down "ouchers" I had done something to my foot. Needless to say my foot swelled up and turned all sorts of blue and black.

Every evening I was soaking that sucker in the bidet in the hotel room. So for the next 10 or so days I limped around France with a "bruised" foot. I even called my Mom from Bordeaux and was told to pack it in an fly home, which I was not going to do ....just for a "Bruised" foot.

After I got home I went to the doctors and had it x-rayed an low and behold I had a broken foot. Flash forward to the present day.... my right foot is about a 1/2 size bigger than my left and I need to wear lace up shoes to be comfortable. Here is snap of the new shoes....

Woo Hoo - new shoes!!!! Now I need to go to Hot Topic and get some fun laces!!!!

I wonder at what age I should stop wearing fun laces......
has that bar been crossed? :)

Take care,
