Do you remember the episode of Friends when Monica spent an obscene amount of money on new boots but then when she put them on they were the most uncomfortable shoes she had ever owned? Later in the episode she made Chandler carry her home on his back and ended up forgetting the shoes at dinner. She never went back for them.
I'm having that same problem. A few years ago I found the cutest slip on flats ever. I bought them in every color. They made it three years and finally died. So last year I bought a new pair of black flats. You guys they are the most painful shoes ever. They rub just above my big toe and they are so high in back they rub my ankle and make it bleed in under an hour.
See look how cute they are.
Here is where I become conflicted. I know these shoes hurt me yet I keep putting them back in my closet. I made it one hour today before my ankle looked like this.
Ouch. (Also lease note that my jeans are as always too long and end up dragging on the ground getting dirty, some day I should order jeans in short length)
So what do I do? Do I put them back in my closet again? Do I just throw the damn things away? I only paid about $15.00 for them so it's not worth it to put them on Craigslist. I could donate them, but I'm not sure I want to inflict this pain on anyone else. Is it going against the universal girl code to throw away perfectly functioning shoes? For now they are sitting by my front door. I'm worried if I put them back in my closet another month will pass and in a hurry I will think, "ooh cute black shoes lets wear those." Then an hour later I'll be crying like Monica. So tell me, what's a girl to do?
