My Own Sunday Funny

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?
Me: Yep. 
(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.

  1. How adorable that she was considerate enough to say something nice about your shoes even though she did not care for them. What a great sport!
