Agony and ec­stasy

Isis Town and Country - - OPINION - By JEAN WRIGHT

It’s win­ter and the sky is grey, the bills are mount­ing ev­ery day, when all I hear’s de­press­ing news it’s time to go and buy some shoes. When I’m in the foulest mood and noth­ing goes the way it should, to ease the stress, I surf the net and shoe-shop on the in­ter­net. Step­ping out in brand new shoes will ban­ish the sever­est blues. I walk the town and keep dis­crete the agony of blis­tered feet. To suf­fer pain in feet con­strained in too-tight shoes is most dis­dained by doc­tor and podiatrist, but I’m a fash­ion masochist. A girl in sin­ful, red stilet­tos will turn the head, as ev­ery man knows, but age dic­tates which styles to choose, I re­ally should shun fetish shoes. I’ll never grow old grace­fully nor dress re­fined and taste­fully, I’ll wear my styles, and sassy shoes; bug­ger the crit­ics and their views.
