Giants and cardboard
I purchased this beautiful pair of black, pointy-toed, high-heeled shoes a few weeks ago. I'm 5'10", without shoes on, so when I've got these heels on, I'm a good 6'1" or so. I sometimes feel like a giant, but at least I'm a giant with nice posture and a girlish figure. [There is something about wearing high heels that makes a girl feel dang good. Am I right?]
As I was walking around in the office with said heels today, something really started to pinch the tops of my big toes.
I discretely removed one shoe [at my desk] to feel around and see if there was something rubbing on my toe to cause this discomfort.
You know when you purchase a brand new pair of shoes and they are still packed with tissue paper, and cardboard pieces that help "shape" the shoe? Ya. I didn't take out the cardboard down at the end of the toe.
No wonder they were uncomfortable. I just love that I've worn these shoes at least 10 times and still have yet to realize I left the cardboard in there.
My name is A.E. Jones, and I'm a geeeeeeenius.
