"H" is for Heels. Something I won't be wearing for quite a while. I just had my ACL reconstructed on Friday. Everything is going really well with it, and it's healing nicely. I just wish I had asked my orthopod when I could wear heels again. If he gave me a date, that would give me an opportunity to make a really corny joke: "Really? That's funny, because I couldn't wear heels before surgery. Yuk, yuk, yuk."
I noticed these blue suede Guiseppe Zanotti heels advertised in The Times. It made me think.
It lead me to look at other Guiseppe Zanotti heels...
...for different occasions...
...and then of-course, the
more practical every day shoe.
But the blue shoes, that were advertised in The Times were really the ones the made me think about what the life of the woman who wears these shoes looks like. Not physically so much, but what does her day look like? Does she walk much? Does she take her kids to the dentist? What about grocery shopping -- does she have people who do that for her? Or am I just so out-of-touch that shoes like this are no big deal? I will say that the first and last time I saw a pair of shoes like this (other than on the tootsies of one of The Real Housewives) was after the theatre one night. It was 11:15 pm and although there was snow on the ground there were 7" suede heels on the feet of some very, very young women who were just beginning their evening. So maybe that's it: they only come out at night?
And just for the record, I am all in favor of slipping your feet into these beautiful, breathtaking Guiseppe Zanotti's no matter what your life looks like. If you can afford them and any incurred orthopedic costs, I say "go for it." That's what I say.

Author's Note: In the month of April, I am participating in the A to Z Blogging Challenge. The idea is to blog about something every day, starting with the first letter in the alphabet ("A") and continuing through all 26 letters (to "Z"). (We get Sundays off for good behavior.) In order to make this fun and challenging, I've decided to theme my A to Z blogging. Here's the plan: since I love reading The New York Times, and since I always find no shortage of frightfully interesting stories, I am going to center my blog on the stories I find in The Times. One thing I promise: an A to Z ride through The Times as diverse as the Gray Lady herself. Hang on for some fun. Or as Kevin said in Home Alone (one of my favorite lines), "I think I'll give it a whirl..."
