"How many pairs of shoes does the average woman own?" (said by Steve Harvey of the Family Feud - who, by the way, is the PERFECT host for this show)
The contestant mumbles her answer....and Steve Harvey booms out "TWENTY-FOUR! Survey SAYS? Twenty-four IS the number one answer!" (ding, ding, ding! lights flash and alarms sound)
To which I reply to the television, "Then apparently SHE (the average woman) is a lightweight!"
At last count (which was done approximately two seconds ago), I have around eighty-nine pairs of shoes (and that's not even counting the various types of slippers (WHAT?! You need "summer" and "winter" slippers! Hmmmm, now wondering if "slipper" socks count as shoes? If so, the number might go up a few digits....) or the miscellaneous pairs that are lurking downstairs in the mudroom or garage that are used for just normal, every day kicking around.
Don't believe me? Here's the proof of what is currently residing in my closet.
|Sorry for the mess - but this is what I have to live with until the "shoe wall" finally gets built....but the pink stripes are place; just waiting. See why he needs to hurry up and find a job?|
|This doesn't even showcase the shoes behind me that I forgot to memorialize in digital form.|
Excessive? No, I don't think so. Especially when I consider what all is MISSING from my collection..... *sigh* and the fact that I need EVERY. SINGLE. PAIR. of those shoes.
Otherwise, how ELSE would I ever get dressed in the morning? Because EVERYONE knows you ALWAYS plan your outfit around the shoes. Just ask Dorothy....or Cinderella....
