I earned my FastPass ticket yesterday and today. Do you want to know how to get one too? You go shopping with your mother-in-law! Not just any kind of shopping, but . . . . . . . .
with a woman who has very, very small feet and a distinct idea of what an 81 year old woman should and shouldn't wear on those feet!
Have you ever tried to find a size 5 shoe? They don't sell that size in the stores. Believe me - we looked, and looked, and looked! Most of the stores start at size 6. If you're lucky, you can find a few 5 1/2's. So, we tried on every 5 1/2 we could find.
But, there are rules about the appropriate shoes for an 81 year old. Her rules, not mine:
1. The heel can't be too high.
2. No black patent allowed.
3. No mule/backless shoes.
4. Old ladies shouldn't wear red.
5. No pointed toes.
I know, you're thinking why didn't you look in the kid's department?
6. They can't be too young looking.
7. No super rounded toes.
8. No plaid.
Oh yeah, and we won't even talk about price point! After much frustration - more mine than hers - I thought I'd buy myself a pair!
And to make a statement that I'm not old - I went with pointy . . . . . and a little higher heel than usual!
And to make myself feel even better, I threw in a dress!Because if you can't make yourself feel good by buying a $5 dress - then something is wrong with you!
Yeah, I know those brown shoes don't go with that black dress. That is why I bought a pair of black shoes too!
After all, I need to look good in that FastPass line . . . . . .
