Daddy is the one that got on to her about that. He had to have "the talk" with her about how those strappy sandals aren't helping her feet, and she needs more practical shoes. He even took her out yesterday to get some shoes (she says they cost so much that those suckers should give her free Wi-Fi access everywhere she wears them). The shoes help her feet but the problem, she says, is that they look just like what everybody else wears.
Mommy likes to be different. She's the only person I know that will count out something because "everybody else is doing it." There's not a single pair of capris or thong flip-flops in her closet for that very reason. But now, alas, her feet will look like everybody elses. I love mommy, but I have to admit that this is strange. She's worried about fitting in? Most people ... oh never mind, this is mommy we're talking about. Most people she is NOT. So she has one less wardrobe decision to make in the mornings. It's the white shoes or the black ones, period. She'll learn to embrace the simplicity soon, and may even come to appreciate having one less thing on her mind.
Well heck, I'm glad I don't have that problem. Zack and I wear the same feather coat every day. Same colors, same size. The only difference is whether it's the thin summer coat or the thick winter coat, and that difference is grown discretely by the down feathers under our colored feathers. No shoes for us, either. Its up to the parronts to keep the house cool or warm enough for our feet. I have to admit, that makes life easier. And you have to admit, we birds look awesome every day, don't we?
Mommy will be ok, and if you see her blog, then you know that she has many other ways to express what makes her unique. She adapts to things pretty well. Most of the time :)
That's all today. Take care, and have a great week.
