30 Days of Writing - #23 - Stiletto Heels



Stiletto heels?

What do I know about stiletto heels?

They're for women. Sure.

And perhaps transvestites who want to impress.

But guys?

No they're not for guys.

Unless beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

And guys admire girls who wear stiletto heels.

But who looks at women's feet?

Not me.

For me there are other things to admire.

Way above the feet.

I'm no heel.

Indeed, I've been told I'm a real sole mate.

And if a woman needs a lift.

I'm happy to pump her with compliments.

Or slipper a gift.

Like a pair of stiletto heels.


See what heels the other participants are over at We Work For Cheese. That's Nicky's blog, our Queen of heels.

I'm not one to speak out normally, but this time I had a "platform" to speak from.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
