I know, I know, I know….. this experiment in a daily new thing is supposed to push me beyond the materialistic. It’s supposed to be deep, life-changing, and boundary-pushing. However, I have just two words for you: ruby slippers.
Tonight, I made a purchase of something new. I bought a pair of ruby slippers. Well, actually they are red sequined bedroom slippers, but they look as though they were meant for a yellow brick road for sure.
Tonight we had a jewelry show at a local boutique, Polka Dots. Walking into this store is total and complete eye candy. There’s so many pretty, cute things to look at. However, my eyes were immediately drawn to the shelf in the corner filled with bedroom slippers. There were patterns of cute little owls, pink snake skin, pastel shades, and on and on…..however, it was the sequined ones that captured my attention.
There was black, pale blue, silver, gold, but the red…..the red might as well have been on a shelf all to themselves as much as they stood out to me. I am a sucker for red shoes, but red sequined bedroom slippers. And they have that super soft fluffy inside….wow. Are you kidding me? I really had no option but to buy them. There was simply no way my feet would ever forgive me if I left without them.
If there are any naysayers out there reading this that believe today’s new thing is superficial, materialistic, and outrageous, so be it. I have stylish, comfy feet that remind me of the most wonderful movie ever, and you don’t. So there. Now, be gone before someone drops a house on you.
