If you happen to have visited my twitter or Facebook or have been within about ten feet of me in the last couple of weeks, you may have heard about how I just sold my short story “Schröding
I love these shoes. They’re a great shade of candy-apple red, there’s a hidden platform that keeps them from being too high and padding in the footbed to make it possible to stand in them for more than ten minutes at a time.
But the best part (and the problem) is what’s on the back:
Awesome, yes? I could never bring myself to get any additional piercings on my body, but I love them on my shoes. And the metal heel is just the right touch of basassitude for the holidays. But there is a problem.
You know what happens when a metal charm hits a metal heel? Clinking. Jingling, even. But that’s okay. I figure either I’ll where these to a Christmas party and the noise will be blamed on someone else’s novelty sweater, or a club and pretend it’s just part of the music.
Because, jingling be damned, with imaginary cats as my witness I promise you this: I will wear them.
