This pink look is all about the shoes, obviously. I loved them when I first saw them, and had to have them. In fact, they were the last pair in store – and they were my size. You’d think I’d know it’s absolutely meant to be but no… I actually put it down for a minute. And it was gone the next.
I walked around the store, eyes searching. Eventually I found it, next to a few other items and the shopper was right there. I felt like saying, “those are my shoes”. Instead, I hovered over it, hoping she’d leave the shoes. I even contemplated taking it while she wasn’t looking. Ha! But could you imagine, she picked up her stuff and walked away?!
And the shoes were left behind.
It must have been a mistake – how could she not want these shoes? I didn’t object, duh. I almost heard angels singing. My hands literally shook as I picked up my candy floss shoes.
And that’s a true story.
