Shoo, Heels!

I’m short. Five-foot-zero, to be specific. But I never wear heels. Okay, I do have one pair of special-occasion shoes with a one-inch heel. Does that even count?

I forswore high heels way back in my early twenties. Why? Isn’t it obvious? Because they hurt! Besides, even if I braved three-inch heels, I’d still be really short. Plus I’ve never thought teetering was all that sexy.

And that brings me to my latest limerick:

Shoo, Heels!
By Madeleine Begun Kane

I’m short, but wear flats — never heels.
Cuz they hurt. Gals, you know how it feels.
So my word to height seekers:
Just give me some sneakers,
Or flip flops, or better yet — wheels.

    I’m with you on comfortable shoes, Mad. :)
    On another note, I’ve nominated you for a Beautiful Blogger Award, which I hope you’ll accept. I enjoy your sense of humor, so that counts as “beautiful”, I do believe. Beautiful Blogger Award

    I still wear very high heels, even at night on the cobblestone sidewalks of San Miguel de Allende)

    Hi Alexis. We each have our own vices. :) How on earth do you walk in high heels on cobblestones? I can barely manage that in sneakers!
