Can You Ever Have Too Many Pairs of Shoes?
Today my son Max drove my daughter Tory and me into New York City for a morning of shopping, walking around, and lunch with my husband, their Dad, Mike. It was a hot and steamy day, but the shopping was fine, mostly for Max, my shoe boy. He is truly my son: He loves a great pair of fashion shoes.
Driving east on Route 3 in Northern New Jersey, Max casually commented that he needed a new pair of shoes. Nodding, I agreed his worn out high tops, oh those purple, blue and green fashion statements, needed to be replaced.
I walked behind my children as they headed south on 8th Avenue in search of the perfect pair of shoes for Max. He found them . . .4 pairs to be exact . . . at Mr. Joe’s shoe shop on the West Side.
Max likes high tops for work and play so I purchased these for him.
Max likes low tops for fun in the sun so he purchased these for himself. Did I mention how thankful I am that my children are gainfully employed this summer?!
Lest you think Tory, my professional shopper, purchased nothing, take a look at one bag of bargain purchases she hauled home. In addition, I bought her a pair of sandals and another shirt. Her stuff cost a lot less than one pair of Max’s shoes, thus proving my point that she’s a professional shopper and bargain hunter to boot.
And me? I bought one pair of $18 sandals for our upcoming vacation.
After sniffing all that shoe leather Max appeared to be on a shopping high and we purchased 4 tee shirts and 3 polo shirts. . .in colors to match his 4 new pairs of shoes. . .perfectly.
“My World and Welcome to It“: By the way, we rode the NCY subway. Have you ever ridden a subway and sat next to someone who jiggled? I mean jiggled his/her leg. Like just enough to bug you? Take a look at Max’s leg in the video and tell me what you think. Would it bug you to sit next to that jiggly leg? Take a look at Max’s leg. Who knew he was a jiggler?!
