Love Hurts: The Story of a Shoe Bite!
Shoes are bare necessities and that... is a fact of life (ahem).
For any other half-crazed shopaholic young woman out there, it makes perfect sense to buy shoes almost every month and probably splurge a few times in between as well.
Why we love them:
They support you like no other.
They always let you watch your step.
They never let your feet touch the ground.
How can you not love any object that actually allows you to achieve all these almost impossible tasks?
How they repay us:
Bought a new shoe recently?
Tried it on? Well, good for you. You know the money was well spent.
But then again... what happens when you forget that the shoe is new even though it's practically your favourite pair now?
For all the love and care you show to your shoes, it's unfair to not receive such love and affection from them during the first few days of your relationship.
It's gonna hurt and you know it:
Each and every one of my readers out there; you must remember those moments complaining about the nasty shoe bite your new pair of lovers have given you?
It isn't fair. It isn't playing by the rules. And most of all, it isn't exactly what you'd signed up for when you saw that pair of shining, sleek new shoes in the store.
It hurts to be hurt by what you love with such passion. And "precaution is better than cure" becomes the anthem of your life.
That is the reason we always make it a point to carry bandaids around...just in case. (No? Ok maybe just me)
Luckily, it gets better:
Even after all that hurt and dejection, as with every other problematic situation, your shoes do start loving you back at some point.
They fit perfectly already. After the initial few days, you don't even face much problem strutting around in them.
After all, if it weren't for constant, dedicated, unconditional and undying love... where would we be?
