I Guess I Just Have Big Feet

This week I decided that I needed a new pair of flip-flops to wear around the house. And on Wednesdays (today) there is a big flea-market type thing within walking distance from my house, so off I went to find a new pair of chappals (sandals). After going to a few different stands to ask if they had my size, I received a few different answers ranging from a mixture of "no"s to strange looks and confused faces. Most of the places I went to stopped at men's size 8, and being that I wear a size 12, this would not do. More than one vendor gave me a puzzled look, paused, and leaned over his table to get a look at my feet. I guess to see if I was telling the truth. I did, however find a pair of baby blue size 9's that the guys insisted I try on. My heel hung over the back about an inch or so and that was the biggest pair I found. With no luck, I returned home determined to one day find a pair of chappals that fit.

hahaha! I have the same problem!! Next time you're in the Capitol let me know... there's a couple of markets that cater more to tourists, so they have the bigger sizes :)

What happened to "to the Jews I have become like a Jew and to the Gentiles I have become like a Gentile?" C'mon suck it up and make your feet smaller! Try being flexible J!
Gosh! :)

Or just try this:
I wish I was a little less taller.
I wish my feet were a little bit smaller.
I wish I had a rabbit in a hat wit' a bat and a '64 impala.

That works for me.
