It's a never ending joke - women love shoes. When advertisers survey women, they compare luxury vacations with buying new shoes. When they need humorous creative, they have a skit with women obsessing over shoes. When they depict women's fantasies, there are almost always shoes involved.
I have been ranting about the "women and shoes" cliche for several years now. I've just never bought it. Women simply can not be that obsessed with shoes. That has always been my stance.
Until last Thursday.
I responded to an 11pm cry from my sister to help her move. She rented her house for the summer and had to be out by midnight. She was not going to make it unless she got some serious help.
So me and my car rode over to the rescue. She had almost everything out of the house, except for some plants and her clothes. I figured that was one trip in one car.
I was wrong.
