Each week my BFF has a Sunday Funny. Well, I’ve got my own this week. Since Andy and I are going on a trip soon that will involve lots of hiking and we are also hitting Gatlinburg this fall, I thought I might want some new shoes. Confession…I wasn’t as concerned about getting actual “hiking” shoes as I was about getting my sparkling white running shoes covered in red dust and dirt. So I just got myself some nice brown New Balance shoes. I decided to try them out at the park tonight on an extremely low-key, but beautiful nature walk we took with the kids.
Stella: Where are your gym shoes?
Me: I got some new shoes. So I think I’m going to try them tonight.
Stella: Can I see them? (Points at box) In here?
(Stella opens box and hesitates.)
Me: Well, what do you think?
Stella: They are really handsome.
Me: Um, thanks.
Stella: No, really handsome.
Me: So, you like them?
Stella: No mom, they’re boyish.
Me: Well they are for hiking.
Stella: They look like boys.
Me: Some girl gym shoes are brown.
She wasn’t convinced.
