I think I was in high school or something when I got my first pair. I remember thinking height without all the pain (I think I thought the same thing about platforms too). I don’t plan to run a marathon in any of them, but they are great for just about any time I want to leave the house and look like I’m suffering for fashion without suffering for fashion.
This weekend, my sister is having a really nice dinner to celebrate her birthday. I wish that I could be there, on the porch, hanging out. I want to start traveling for my family’s birthdays. I think that would be fun, you know, going to birthday celebrations (I’m even willing to ignore the repeated renditions of “Are we there yet”) It will have to be road based, because I don’t want to deal with the radiation or the pat downs. Maybe by the time I get to do this there will be better technology or something.
