a mile in my shoes

I do believe that the rhetoric of my last post merits a bit of explanation...It's not that I hate my size 9 feet. I love my feet. They get me everywhere I need to be. They don't give me too much trouble except after torturing + standing on them for 12 long hours at work, then walking a mile or so on my way home when the bus just isn't frequent enough for my impatient soul. My feet are nice. I simply couldn't live without them. What I meant by "where in the world can I find these {sandals} in my giant size 9..." was simply that none of the great online stores I googled (Zappos, Piperlime, Nordstrom, etc.) carried the sandals in gold AND in my size. I was desperate to own these sandals and wondered if anyone could help me track a pair down. That's when I realized I needed to post my size in order to elicit your help. And that's when the words embarrassingly giant slipped in. But you know, life is good. In the end, this has been much ado about nothing. I ordered them in black AND in my size. They arrived yesterday (so fast!) from Zappos, and I am in love. They are like a party for my feet. To celebrate my very normal, reliable, nice feet.
