The Fetish Is Afoot

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

It appears that I don't need to wait until my morning walk around the neighborhood on trash day to obtain free stuff. It is now delivered to the convenience of our driveway!

Over the weekend, Bill says, "There's a pair of boots in the driveway. Do you want them?"


"I guess. I'll take a look at them when I get a chance."

"Okay. I'll put them in the back of the truck."

So, I went ahead and forgot all about them until this morning, when he reminded me about them as he was about to drive off in the truck. And of course I had to check them out and try them on.

How does it happen that a pair of perfectly good (and sporty) women's boots, which just happens to fit perfectly AND feel more comfortable than most of my other shoes, ends up in our driveway?

Unless this is the work of the illiterate black cat who stole my socks, now making amends, I'd better put up a big sign in the yard, reading, "Thanks for the boots, whoever you are!"

    Well, do I feel silly or what? I misheard Bill. He corrected me this past Friday. "I said I found them in the PARKING LOT, not the driveway!" So, they were sitting in the Walmart parking lot, and in a sense Bill did bring them home for me!

Made a better story the other way, though, didn't it?

    Word to the wise: Put them in plastic bag and put them in the freezer for a few days. Since they are not spanking new, this will kill any living organisms they may harbor. Or ship them up North and we can leave them in the unheated mudroom overnite.

  I like the idea of the sign! Let's do it! These boots are made for walking! These days, people are more apt to take than give! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I'd like to think it is your sneaky sock kitty since it is shoes. Maybe he is wanting you to be more adventurous. Sexier. LOL. So now sock kitty is grooming you into the foot-savvy babe he knows you can be. Maybe a pair or red stilettos will show up soon. LOL.

    Are they leather?

And no comment is needed as to how bizarre this is. Are you living in the Bermuda Triangle of Foot-related Weirdness?

    Enjoy your new boots. I really do think Bill got them for you as a thank you for all your support that you have given him these past few months.

    WooHoo, way to go. I bet you look great in your boots.
It made me think about the movie we watched for the second time. "KINKY BOOTS" We loved it in the movie house and also with Netflix a few days ago.
Take care, you sure do live in a friendly neighbourhood. Pat in Maine.

HUGS SUZIE, You are doing emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Like Giniemie, I'm guessing that your anonymous donor is Bill. Either him or you have a very resourceful Guardian Angel who is aware of your size and taste.

    You sure Bill didn't buy them?! Enjoy them.
emoticon emoticon You sure do have a strange neighborhood. I never got anything useful tossed/put in my driveway that I hadn't paid for.
