Shoe shopping: fun or chore?

You know when you really like cute shoes, but you're just not in the mood for a few hours of rubbing your feet raw by shoe shopping, yet your favorite work shoes have worn out until the steel spikes showing out the bottom are the most photogenic part of the shoes?

And likewise your second-favorite pair?

And your third-favorites... well, let's just say best not spoken aloud what shape they're in...

And then there's the fourth and fifth pairs, which had to be chucked due to external structural failure. And the sixth favorite pair in which one heel gives the support of a weak sponge, and the other a brick, due to internal possible disintegration.

Maybe one of those first three favorite pairs can hold out a little longer.


Okay, maybe it's time for this author to go buy a new, less-accusing pair of work heels.

What activities do you consider chores that most other people enjoy? How far do you go to avoid them?

    1. Something satisfying about being able to cross it off the list.
