Mall Redux

Overheard at the mall today:

Approx. mid-twenties Girl #1: (points to patent leather shoes) "I really hate all these plastic shoes.

Friend of Girl #1: "Yeah. Plastic is totally gross."

I swear - did the mothers of this generation teach them NOTHING at all about fashion?

But, I didn't let it bother me because I woke up to a wonderful surprise this morning. Despite having a cold for the past few days and fighting a certain monthly intrusion of Mother Nature and having therefore suspended the dieting and working out during this time period, I got on the scale this morning to find that I'd dropped FIVE POUNDS since Friday!!! I have no idea how this happened considering that I never made it to the gym after Tuesday and I ate (shhhh!) cookies on Thursday AND Friday. But hey - whatever works!

Woo Hoo! 5 more lbs. to my initial goal, baby!

And when I reach that goal - these are what I'm buying myself as a reward!

Go me!

Honey, I'm seriously concerned about this shoe fetish of yours :-) You're not using them as a substitute for anything, are you?

Hey, shoe collecting is a time-honored female way of dealing with emotional issues (see example: Bradshaw, Carrie). Shoes are the PERFECT addiction. They're calorie-free. They ALWAYS fit. My legs happen to look fabulous in heels. If more women channeled their food cravings into shoes - they'd be able to spend a lot less time at the gym (says the woman who fended off a major afternoon cookie craving by staring at her reward shoes)
