Down at heel

broken heelMy shoe started flapping at me during a meeting. I tried to ignore it but it was very persistent.

What to do?

I considered taping it but thought that would not work and, anyway, would look really unsightly. I tried staples all around the heel. Nice look, slightly punky, but it flapped open straight away.

Oh well, only one thing left to do – rip it off!

Now I’m walking around as if I have a major limp. It’s not particularly unsightly; it’s definitely not punky. In fact, I just look a bit more of a tramp than usual.

But, no more flapping. Oh, the bliss of it!

flip flop to works i say? in winter? Ugg boots! :) What about super glue, would that have worked? How about just walking around in your socks? Set a trend, Nomad. Go on, just do it!

Not to worry, mate - you never were a flapper to begin with.

One word - superglue. Works wonders.

I feel your pain. One time I wore my most favorite addorable chunky flip-flops to work and of course that very same day the toe seperator came loose and I tried to fix it every way I knew how. I even tried using a rubberband and an unfolded paper clip. It didn't work. I looked rediculous. A friend of mine said I looked like I should be selling "Street Wise" (A chicago newspaper written and sold by homeless people for spare change). Doh.

nyasha and alan: superglue would have worked but I didn't have any access to any.

doug: you say such nice things...flap, flap, mince, mince. :-)

anne: thanks for commiserating and thanks for visiting.

Sweet Pea, being tagged by Dooce is like being glittered on by Tinkerbell. She is the Mother of all bloggers. Check out her ranking on technorati--more than anything read into her archives--she is brilliant. (Not like me and you brilliant--but brilliant :))
