When you chose to laugh instead of being mortified…

Yesterday I pulled out an old pair of shoes and decided to wear them…they were my favorite for a very long time, and I admired how the leather had held up so well. So off we went to be with the church, I played the piano as usual, and sat down for the sermon, only to feel something odd on my shoe. I looked down and couldn’t believe my eyes–the heel was literally coming off in chunks, one chunk hanging on by a thread. I showed my girls and we chuckled–of course I was kinda flabbergasted, and hoped no more chunks fell off while I played the piano for the last set. But of course, by the end of the service, and by the afternoon, I had left chunks of my shoe all over the Omni hotel where our church meets, and all over taco cabana, and all over the car…and I did chose to laugh and make fun instead of feel (too) embarrassed…

(I just noticed there are tiny chunks all over the floor by my piano where I had practiced before church. If only I had noticed then!)

*I did call the company and they are sending a return label and will take a look to see if it’s a manufacturer’s problem..come on, I can tell you myself that this is not normal wear and tear!!!

  • If it is any comfort at all, I didn’t notice a thing and if I had, I probably would have blamed a kid for it. 🙂

  • This made me chuckle :)Thanks for your humble sharing. Reminded me that I miss your piano playing.

  • ha!

  • this was such a good one! it kinda reminds me of all the times i’ve walked around wearing only one earring…they fall out ALL the time…you’d think i would notice because of how GIANT they usually are.

    p.s. i hope they give you some new shoes and alot of money
