It’s that time of year again. Time for the annual changing of the
My beloved Crocs were slap wore out. The sole was as slick as a baby’s butt. In the rain, I was slipping, and sliding around, like I was playing on a slip-n-slide! Not good for my back, and neck!
What’s that? Why were they so worn out, when they were only a year old?? Because I wore them every day for a whole year! That’s 24/7/365. ( Well, actually you know I wasn’t on my feet 24 hours a day!!) 😉
Okay, so I knew I needed some new shoes. No doubts about it. The problem: size. My feet are ski boat size, and fat to boot! So, finding shoes to fit me, is a little bit of a daunting undertaking!
Armed with the knowledge that I had found the Crocs at Bealls, I made my 40th foray. (Give or take 20 forays.)
Yay!! Success!! Found a pair of white sandals.
But wait!! It’s after Labor Day!! Ya can’t wear white!!!!
Oh, fer Pete’s sake! This is Florida!! We wear white 24/7/365! Alrightey then, I’m not to be held responsible when Mama reprimands you!!
Whatev. Okay, now.
Found a pair that fit. Next problem: price.
Only $20?! I can afford that! But wait!! They are on sale!! 60% off!!! So that’s only….. (Counting on fingers…) $8!! I can afford that even better!! But wait!! Today is Senior Day, so that’s 15% off automatically! Woo hoo!! That’s only…… $6.80!! Better and better!!
But wait!! I have a 20% off coupon!! WOW!! So I only ended up paying ………………………………….. $5.44!!!!!
They are practically paying me to take them home!! Trust me: if they had had any more size 11s, I would have taken all they had! But at least I got 1 pair!!
I’ll be back next year!
And the proper burial at can for the Crocs.
No, I don’t know where the other one is, but trust me, I won’t be wearing just the one!
I’ve already been wearing the sandals about a week, and they rub my left big toe, right under my toenail. 🙁
NOW I remember why I gave away the pair I bought last year before the Crocs!!
Still on the look out for more gator shoes. Send any hints ya got!!
