It’s all about the shoes…

Sad I know. Feminist mother. Serious type. Starting a Cop Watch group in her town. Advocate for civil rights. Trying to write a memoir and what, what pray tell is consuming me right now? Shoes. New shoes. Shoes for my birthday.

In the mountains many shoes are just down right ugly. I have to have interesting shoes. Well I don’t have to but it’s cheaper than therapy and has no calories like pistachio nut ice cream. Shoes can’t get me in trouble right?

I. Want. Them.
