I’ve occasionally heard female friends talking about the number of shoes they own. One has more than a dozen pairs shoes in various styles, just in black, and more in brown and other colors. Going against the stereotype, one male friend has likewise admitted to having multiple pairs of shoes in differing colors.
I don’t even pretend to understand.
It wasn’t planned, but this is the scene I discovered on Wednesday morning.
Without realizing it, I’ve apparently fallen into the habit of taking my shoes off while standing in the same place every night. That’s very nearly every bit of footwear I own. The only shoes not in that photo are a pair of snow boots and a pair of do-it-yourself dance shoes.
That seems to me like plenty of shoes, but I’m left wondering: why do I have two pairs of slippers?
