Imaginary Shoe Inserts

Rusty:  Jan's never going to win the Brightest Human of the Continent Award.

Micah:  Not even the Brightest Human of the County Award.

Rusty:  Do you think we could at least put her name in for the Human Running on Half a Cylinder Award?

Micah:  Not a chance!

Rusty:  *sigh*  I had such high hopes for this year.  If we aren't going to win anything, I guess we might as well tell a joke.

Micah:  Okay.  Tuesday morning Jan leaped out of bed -  No, let me begin again.  Tuesday morning Jan crawled out of bed and wandered around from chore to chore as fast as her feet and fuzzy brain could travel.

Rusty:  Before she even leashed the dogs for a walk, her feet and legs hurt.  Not unusual.  But even though she wasn't wearing inserts, one foot felt like it was on a heel insert and the other felt as if the insert had fallen out.

Micah:  "Oh, great, now these shoes are falling apart, too," she complained.  "I need to find something to change into before I leave for lunch."

Rusty:  She survived the walk but was so busy she forgot to change shoes.

Micah:  She ate lunch at the crowded church soup kitchen. (Yummy sausage dogs and banana pudding - she didn't even bring us a crumb.)  Then she went shopping at Wal-mart with two ladies.

Rusty:  When Jan got home, she rushed the dogs outside to the pee pen, then raced around the kitchen putting away a few groceries.  All she wanted to do was to collapse into a chair and take off those uncomfortable shoes that were causing so much pain!

Micah:  She stopped beside the kitchen table, took a breath, and for the first time that day, she looked down at her feet.

Rusty:  She can't believe no one noticed she was wearing two different shoes.

Micah:  I guess we should be thankful they were at least the same color!

Rusty:  Yes, they were - muddy.

We're joining Pepi Smart Dog for today's Thankful Thursday blog hop.


  1. MOL! We guessed she was wearing mismatched shoes. TBT did that once.

    It is our 10th Blogiversary today. We have been looking forward to that fer a long time and hope you will come and visit!

  2. My human did that once - on her way out of town, flying across country. And she forgot to pack her nice shoes too. She was stuck wearing unmatching, ugly athletic shoes for four days. MOL!

  3. We also had to look twice before we saw it...MOL :D Pawkisses for a wonderful day :) <3

    I'd laugh,'cept it's the kinda thing that happens to me so can only sym-paw-thighs. Anyway, kitties, you are not the ones who have to worry about being the 'Human' of the Continent, so rest easy. Hugs and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx

  5. Oh!! Fancy Jan wearing two different shoes when she went out. We hope she didn't get blisters.

  6. Oh that Jan is something else
    Lily & Edward

  7. LOL! This is why my shoes are different colors ;-)))

  8. Hahaha! That sounds lime something I'd do too!

  9. Oh, Jan, you are so original! I have always wanted to wear non-matching shoes and didn't have the hutzpah. Thank you for changing my fashion ideas from boring into something I shall stun the public with!!!

  10. BOL - that is so funny. But you know, our Mom did something similar one time. She was on a business trip with Dad and they had a fancy dinner to go to. Imagine her dismay when she put on her dress shoes and realized she had packed one black and one navy shoe. Needless to say, there was a very quick run to the mall:)

    Woos - Ciara and Lightning

  11. Well now dat's somethin'. Glad she's okay and didn't fall or trip cuz of da difference.

    Luv ya'

    Dezi and Raena

  12. ha ha - both my humans have done that. They felt so stupid.

  13. My mom's done that, too! I hope her feet are feeling better!!

    1. I mean, I hope Jan's feet are feeling better!!!

  14. girl... maybe you need a stylist to lay out your duds... that's so funny!

  15. That is too funny :) I thought you were going to say she was stepping on a dog or cat toy inside one of her shoes.

  16. Oh my heavens! Well at least they were the same color so maybe no one else noticed!

  17. Well at least that explains it. I was wondering why you needed inserts for imaginary shoes!

  18. OMD, you know what? Our mom didn't notice anything in the last pic until she read the last few sentences twice!! Twice!!!! No worries, Jan. We're sure you looked great! :) :)

    Momo & Pinot

  19. Oh, MY!! No wonder they felt so odd...

    Once the petcretary went to church in her house slippers...oops...but at least they were both the same, LOL!

  20. This falls under our "Don't tell the kids!" stories! We have MANY!
