OMG – What did he say?
ROFL – What did she mean?
Gender is important.It’s hard to know what the other sex really thinks.
So the bent (or cracked) folk at Guapola and Running Naked With Scissors are gonna lay it out for you.
One speaks. The other responds.
He Said/She Said
And make sure you see the other side of the conversation at Guapola. It will make your life better.
(Ok, probably not, but you’ll probably get a good laugh out of it, so maybe it will be a little better after all…)
Work shoes, sneakers, boat shoes, wedding/funeral/interview shoes.
That’s it. I own 4 pairs of shoes. And even that’s too many.
So can someone please explain to me the general obsession women have with shoes?
Flats, pumps, heels, stilettos, boots, straps, open toe, mary janes, kitten heels, slingbacks,
I could go on.
Too many kinds, and it seems like women want to own (at least) one of each. Are you out
of your minds?
“But Guapo!”, I hear from all corners of the girl-verse, “We need them! These green
flats are exactly the wrong shade of green to match my nail polish/eye shadow/dress/
skirt/poodle/handbag!”, they say. “I need to make sure I am ready for any possible
fashion emergency that could possibly come up at any time in the entire realm of
Have you tried black? Black goes with everything (say the magazines my girl flips
through). Oh, and comfortable. Go with comfortable too.
“But Guap!” comes the inevitable reply, “How can I be comfortable when I know I
don’t look the absolute best that I possibly can?!?”
Wincing in pain with every step is rarely a good look. Just sayin…
And why do women need 30+ shoes to make them uncomfortable“They have to match
the dress, Guap!”
The shoes are green. The dress is green.”No Guap. The dress is mint green. The shoes
are sea green. Are you blind?!?”
No. In this case, I’m sane.
I’m not saying you shouldn’t get all the sh desires. I’m not saying you
shouldn’t have stacks of shoe boxes all over the house (because you’ve run out of places
to store them). I not saying you shouldn’t leave the mall/shoe store/website without
having bought your body weight in shoes.
I’m just saying that later, when you lament that you have no room/nothing to wear/the
wrong tint/heel/strap, you shouldn’t expect any sympathy from us.
She Said – My Turn!
Hang on – I gotta catch my breath …
It’s a lot farther than I thought running all the way back from your place to get here in time.
And of course in these ridiculous shoes, ouch! I gotta blister. Ok Where we at here… da da daaa, blah blah blahhhhh ….. uh.huh..ok..I see .
Dude… first of all I gotta say that bragging about only 4, no 5 sorry, nice slippers by the way, isn’t gonna give you a head start over here. I have less pairs than you do. Really. Boots, Sandals, FLip Flops.
Oh and these hella sexy pair of heels I got just for the occasion. I think they liked them over there at your place, just a hunch. I could be wrong (but most likely, I’m not :-) )
So I got 4. alright we will call it a draw on who has more shoes, besides it is pretty safe to say that if I hadn’t had a pit bull and two puppies that were half pit bull half lab around the last year and a half, I would have like…7. Ok 10.
No I won;t cop to any more, and you can;t make me. Don;t make me bring out the rubber body suit I half rock. At least not this week.
I don’t have the right shoes for it.
I see you looking at my shoes there Guap.. which just proves my point.. It;s the guys fault we like shoes. Yup, that appreciative glance… they are pretty hot huh?
They pinch the shit outta my toes though – a complete coincidence – NOT an indicator that um, not an indicator that we girls would ….
My mother always told me “You must suffer to be beautiful” And why do we like to be beautiful girls? C’Mon let me hear you Loud and Proud
BECAUSE! Right on my sisters…. Because.
So as I see it I don;t have to say another word.
But you know me. I always have SOMETHING else to say.
I’ll think of it n a minute. I must say, you did an outstanding job covering the She said part too. I’m not sure why ran to come back here. oh yeah…
Girls Rule..Boys Drool! BAM and HA and Damn Fine Skippy!
All right I admit it, I am using diversionary tactics and subliminal suggestion.. circular diversion.
Look at those boys looking at my shoes…just like I said in Guapola… you should probably snap em out of it EG cause they won’t be much help in the voting.. are we taking a vote? Guap? El GUAPO!!
Damn, I am gonna go back and see if the have these shoes in at least…. 3 other shades. Yes black included. You are right on that one. Black is good. And Practical.
ANd shoe boxes are practical too. So I beg to differ about us lamenting about not having room because of the shoe boxes.
If you would not have your stuff, there would be plenty of room for our boxes. Just saying.
I am highly impressed that even though you can;t discern the difference between Mint Green and Sea Green, you know the names of them. I am proud to be your friend. :-)
Don’t think you squeaked the
I’m not saying you shouldn’t get all the shoes your heart desires.
comment in under the radar. I already called TMWGITU… we are going shopping this afternoon. I think she has your credit card.
So I guess, I really don;t see your point. Mine is better.
Oh and hey! Are you gonna let me visit again next week? I need to know so I can pick up a pair of Flip Flops. And running shoes. Maybe a new pair of strappy sandals…. heels…
You know you like it boys and we know you like it too…right girls?
