The shoe dilemma
So as I said in my last post, we are going on vacation tomorrow. I haven’t officially packed yet, but I have done some mental packing and once again I’m faced with the shoe dilemma.
The shoe dilemma comes up on every trip, and though I’m not a girly girl, I have this same conversation with myself every time:
- How many pair do I have room for?
- Are these shoes matching the forecast weather/season?
- Do I need dress-up shoes or semi-dress up shoes or casual shoes or all of the above?
- What shoes do I need for those pants, this skirt, that pair of jeans?
- Etc, etc, etc…
Is it just me or is this ridiculous waste of anyone’s time? I do understand that we need to change our clothes depending on the weather. This fits in the whole food/water/shelter category, and I think that’s fair. If not fair, at least manageable. The rest is just mindless though right? I think we need to put some R&D into one pair of black shoes that have an adustable heel. If they can make those converterible roller skate sneakers, surely the technology is available. Other possible side effects include:
Less shoes = less luggage = lighter airplane baggage = less fuel consumption = good for the environment?!
Wow. Someone should definitely get on this pronto.
