Two Shoes Today

It may be obvious to you that in the above photo I am wearing two different shoes, but it wasn't so obvious this morning when I was getting dressed in the usual Monday morning rush.  Furthermore, it wasn't so obvious to anyone in my office that I was wearing two different shoes today - all day.  My office is 35 miles from my house, which means I cannot go home to change shoes at lunch.  I don't have time.  I was in the office when I realized I had a different shoe on each foot- I wore them proudly all day long.  No one noticed.  It's just like in The Shawshank Redemption when Andy walks back to his cell wearing the warden's polished dress shoes: "Seriously, how often do you really look at a mans shoes?"

At the end of the day today I brought my team together and showed them my shoes.  We ended the day with a laugh.

  1. I did that at Paradise one day. One was black, one was navy, but the thing that made it really bad is that altho they were both pumps, one was plain and one had a flower thing on it. I always put my shoes on last thing and they were in my closet below dresses and I only saw the backs of them. I still didn't notice at work until a student asked, "Do you have on 2 different shoes?" I can still remember looking down and seeing that I did and feeling my face go warm. It was about 10:00. I did go home and change as soon as I could. Good for you enjoying your own joke and laughing at yourself.
