What excited us even more was when we got in the store they had a ton of shoes at ridiculous clearance prices! Ooooooooh. Anyway, My husband has been looking at crocs... (well, actually Airwalk clogs, a discounted version of crocs that you can find in Payless,)...ever since we got to Utah. I don't know why, but they wear them much more here than they did when we were back east. The first time he mentioned them to me I told him adamantly that he could get them if he liked, but I would not be going out with him anywhere when he was wearing them. Why did he want them anyway? I myself refuse to wear shoes just because "everyone else is doing it". Those big plasticy shoes were a bit over the top as far as I was concerned, and why would ANYONE put those on their feet? Ha! (I laughed at him.) Ha, Ha, HA!!! That was the last time he mentioned them.
Well it just so happened that while we were in Payless, I saw a slew of the clogs on clearance for $3 a pair. Hmmm... wouldn't it be funny if I got a pair just as a joke? They had a large variety of colors in size 10. (Apparently not too many people have mammoth feet like me because I don't generally have a hard time finding shoes in my size.) There were red, navy blue, light blue, black, white, pink, orange and lots of different tie dyes to name a few. And $3? It was so worth the laugh. So I pulled out a nice bright orange pair and put them on my feet. Hmm... these actually felt quite comfortable. Almost like a winter flip-flop. (And you know how much I love flip-flops... I have like 30 pairs!) Huh... kind of bouncy... don't look too bad with my jeans really... I think I could maybe get used to these.
I couldn't decide on the pale pink with white skulls or the bright orange, so I just got both. When the lady rang me up, it came to a grand total of $4.81. Excuse me did you make some kind of mistake? Nope... I forgot, it's BOGO(HO). (Hmm... after separating it like that, I can kind of see why they don't add that on the end...). You mean BOGO(HO) works on clearance shoes too??? Oh Yeah!
Well all of a sudden I was feeling quite generous. Come on DeAnna, I will treat you to a couple of pairs of shoes too. (Usually she buys her own... she earns a good amount babysitting.)
Needless to say, we ended up with six pairs of shoes, (three pairs each), and the grand total including the aforementioned shoes was, (drum roll please), $20.83 :)
Now it could possibly end up that MY shoes will just sit in my closet for a good long time once I realize that I caved to a fad, (I haven't worn the big plastic shoes out in public yet), but who knows, I might get brave sometime soon. (After all, you can just hose them down if they get dirty... that has got to be a plus!)
Regardless, if you happen to see me with them on... please, BE NICE!
