New in town, I sulked my way thru a huge grocery market. Why don't they have the food I always bought at home in L.A. You know, regular food!
Then, out of the corner of my eye, I noticed a pair of silver shoes - not your ordinary silver shoes. Not silver sneakers. Glittering, new, company-for-dinner-flatware, blingding, fairy-tale movie, smooth leather slides. I wanted to laugh, sneaked a look at the wearer to see if I might get slapped. We both smiled, then laughed.
The gorgeous young woman said "I was almost afraid to wear them."
I assured her it was the perfect decision, and insisted: There are times when it takes such a completely unlikely, unimagined, fun perspective to blast away a clunky, who-needs-this kind of a morning.
I wish you smiles.
