If you read the title of this post and immediately thought of Usher...you are my new best friend.
So I got this piece of mail yesterday. It was from DSW. That's the Discount Shoe Warehouse for those of you who aren't in the know. I opened it up and out came a $25 gift certificate. Sweet! But what's the catch? I proceeded to read the enclosed letter. I'll transcribe it for my 2.7 readers.
It really does pay to love shoes! We're sending this Reward Your Style certificate because you spent $250 at DSW."
I did what?!? Yes, that's right folks. It appears that over the past year, I spent $250 on shoes. Granted there was a pair of black leather boots that counted for about $60 of that total...but that's still a whole lotta money to spend on shoes. In one year. Oh, and let me not forget to confess that I have purchased shoes at stores other than DSW as well. Which puts me in the $300 range. Maybe more. But let's look at the bright side. That works out to a mere $25 per month. And may I remind you that my shoes are frequently the subject of much conversation, compliments and admiration in various circles.
So really my shoe indulgence is a good thing. It brings joy and happiness to so many. Numerous women have been inspired to expand their shoe horizons because of me. Even guys have benefited. One male friend has commented on my "sassy" shoes in the past. Others have been able to explore the intricacies of the female psyche as prompted by discussions of the delight of cute shoes.
So I spent $250 on shoes last year. Just doing my part for this little corner of the world. You can all thank me later.
