I have a lot of shoes. 

At last count there were 56 pairs.  I've bought several pairs since then, so I assume the count is closer to 65 now.  While that pales in comparison to Dog the Bounty Hunter's wife, I still feel it's quite a bit of shoes for one person to own.

No, I don't wear them all.

But I do, in all reality, wear at least 35 of them on a semi-regular basis. 

That being said, I need to get rid of a bunch of shoes before I move.  If anyone wants any of the pairs I decide I no longer need, you are welcome to them.  Otherwise I will donate them to Goodwill.

As I started going through my shoes yesterday, I realized something weird. 

I have, like, four flip-flops from Old Navy for which I cannot find mates.

I rarely lose socks to the Dryer Monster people so often complain about...  How did I lose an entire shoe?  It's not like they're hard to find or anything.  And I'm not the kind of girl who goes to a friend's house and regularly (or ever) returns wearing only one shoe.  (Seriously, who does that, anyway?)

So, I'm really curious, to say the least.

Where the fuck did the other shoes go?


  1. This is a common occurence in my life as well, and only ever with flip flops. It's like they have some kind polar magnetic force that just pushes them as far away from each other as possible. I usually end up finding the lost mate months later buried in the back of my car, or somewhere else equally nonsensical.

  2. That must be it. I assume I'll find the mates soon, as I just threw the ones I couldn't find mates for away.

  3. What size?? Please say 10.
    I love shoes more than cake.

  4. Ditto, my friend. Although, I think the part where I mentioned how many I have might have been indicative of that. Unfortunately, most of my shoes are size 8 or 8.5. Although, if I find amazing shoes in a size ten, I will be sure to let you know.

  5. What kind of shoes do you need? :)
