Too Many Shoes?
Too many shoes? Not for Mrs. Cranky, no way. There are never enough shoes for Mrs. Cranky. What is it with women and shoes?
Mrs. C is not really a girly girl. She does not like makeup; she is not fond of frilly clothes.
She does like her shoes.
Last week we were cleaning out and reorganizing our closet. Reorganizing does not mean throwing anything away, it just means putting things in different places. The first order of business was to pull out all her shoes. It was my job to separate them and lay them out in the hall for inspection.
Open toed or summer shoes on the right, closed toed or winter shoes on the left.

The picture would indicate that Mrs. C has many more winter shoes than summer shoes. That would be incorrect. Mrs. C stores many of her shoes in her car. Don’t ask, I don’t know. Most of her summer shoes are still in the car.
Oh, that’s not all the shoes. There are shoes in boxes in the closet that we did not even open. Mrs. C says she knows what they are…I doubt it. I suspect they have never been worn.
|What to wear, what to wear?|
At least if we get invited to go out, or if she buys a new dress, she has a pair of shoes that will be appropriate.
Hahahahaha…I hear you ladies and I was only joking. Of course if there is a wedding coming up or some such event, Mrs. Cranky will be at the mall looking for just the right shoe.
I have a pair of sneakers, a pair of boat shoes, a pair of golf shoes and two pairs of dress shoes one brown and one black. I have not bought a new pair of shoes in three years.
I don’t get it, why do women need so many shoes?
I do have to say, when Mrs. C puts on a new pair of 5” heal platform shoes that makes her walk in that special way, my pulse does race a bit.
