in honor of this very "special" person born 29 years ago on this day...i christen it "everyone must buy shoes" day. and when you do, think of me. i shall be browsing the aisles of the very few shoe stores we have around here, in a desperate search for something to wear other than sandals and runners (the rest of my shoes are in the containers). it's been raining off and on around these here parts, and i don't really like wearing sandals in the mud. we went somewhere on sunday where i kind of wanted to dress up, but my options were a pair of asics running shoes or black haviana flip-flops. so, so stylish. i chose the sandals, which was a mistake. walking across the parking lot i found some of that sticky mud, you know, the kind that you plofpt into and then you get your foot out, but find that it kept your sandal as a souvenir. yeah, i had to wrestle with that stuff to get it back. that's me...super classy birthday girl!
