I Lead the League in….

1 Comment

….something ESPN doesn’t keep records on, evidently. According to my husband — who is a ESPN aficianado (when he’s not saving the world by playing Farmville) — I lead the league in shoes downstairs.

I do admit that I hate having shoes on and prefer to be barefoot. The second I get in the house, I’m looking to lose the loafers. Or flip flops, tennis shoes, sandals – whatever the claustrophobic foot enclosure might be. I’d like to think it’s because I’m anxious to show off my pedicure. But my sons can’t pull themselves away from Disney XD channel long enough to look, the dog thinks my feet are only good for licking, and my husband is anti feet. Pedicured or not.

So I decided to take a look around to see if my husband might be right, or if he was just busting my achilles. And this is what I found:

There was my pair of flip flops I wear to the little league games, walking toward the couch in the family room to find a place to hide

This pair next to the chair in the family room

And the dog overseeing this pair of tennis shoes.

Three pairs and we haven’t left the family room yet. Hmmm.

So let’s move on to the kitchen shall we? And here, we apparently have a two-fer:

OK, maybe my husband is on to something, because here are my snow boots on top of the dryer

Hey, there’s my other orange flip flop! But how did it get next to the box of Milk Bones in the laundry closet?

And my pink flip flops are right there in the garage, next to my husband’s golf clubs.

Upon further reflection, perhaps my husband is right.

Damn, it feels good to be the best at something.
