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.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

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!"
