Sturdy Shoes-Sturdy Girls-My Apology

I'm never an easy study. But when I get something, it usually sticks. Something dawned on me as I stood in queue at DCA yesterday awaiting my Tampa flight. I was way out of my element regarding any authority on what shoes women might consider--"man shoe" wise. Lisa Golightly, I think, was the one who said something like..."a girl's shoes can't be bigger than the girl." I get it now. I was wrong to even offer any masculine shoddings options for gals and I'll never do it again.
Celibacy. I'm only thinking celibacy as this fairly young gal stepped in front of me. Sturdy my ass. I'll never....
....ever attempt to speak for a women's foot again.

Onward. In Tampa. In linen. Working on a panties post.

HA! Those hideous orthopedic nightmares are still less revolting than some of the vile shoddings I saw in airports this past weekend. I don't know how you do it--both the travelling, and the constant assaults on your sensibilities by what horrors people consider clothing assemblages. Two crimes committed by these people: first, when they bought this garbage; and second, when they elected to wear it. Out in public. Please bring back more warm weather, sir, upon your return.

Hoss, it ain't you. That's a bad shoe, bad sock, cankle trifecta. (BTW, I'm still dreaming of that ice cream girl. Made me want to transfer to the Army Air Corps)

Hey, now. Maybe these shoes are being worn to correct some kind of orthopedic problem, possibly the feet version of *man hands*. Though I don't think I'd advertise my condition by rolling up the legs of my britches.

Good Lord! ADG admits he was wrong. Publicly. What next?

I promise you that I'd never--in a million years--make comments about anyone who had a handicap and thus wore shoes/braces or anything to make their life better/easier/navigable. The shoes depicted here were attached to a woman whose gait/ambulation and mobility were not in compromise.

Back now, to the rough draft on my panties post.

I used to have a male-repellant traveling-for-the-company airplane/airport/motel kit not unlike the above. I just wish I could congratulate your subject on her success.

I'm pretty sure I know your stance on panties. However, I am curious to know what kind of cloting you like your women to wear.

If I were betting, I'd say you gravitate toward the ultra feminine, always wearing a dress kind of girls.

I'm with Flo.

High heels are the delectable price that a woman pays for glamour and beauty.

I can see going for comfort for a plane ride--but there are much cuter, and more feminine, options than the Orthopedic Olgas that gal is sportin' there.
