Name Calling



I have lovely red tennis shoes on today. They're lovely and they say "diesel" on them. I think all shoes should be titled after fossil fuels. Black ones could be called "coal"...clear ones "gas". But I won't really know about the others because I usually stick with red shoes. They're tarty, I know, but what the fuck do I care about what YOU think?

Sorry. Didn't mean to get snippy. It's just, I love my lovely red shoes so much, I get sensitive when you call them tarty. I mean, I can call them tarty because they're mine...but it's just crossing a line to have you say they are. Why would you want to judge the shoes of a person you've never even met? I could be the least tarty person you know. I mean, jebus, just give my innate purity a chance to shine through the tarty red shoes.

Oh god...so much pressure. Poor, poor shoes.

Better tarty than farty.

diesel ... is that really a fossil fuel? I mean crude oil is, but is a byproduct of a fossil fuel, a fossil fuel?

I don't think I would wear shoes with the word GAS on em'.
Would you?

Kara said...

laura - I formally disown you

niall - semantics, semantics...you're just jealous of my red shoes

axatlas - um yeah, I would, cause they'd be CLEAR...how awesome would that be?

So, while wearing these red shoes, have you tried closing your eyes, clicking your rubbery heels together three times and repeating "There's no place like home." three times?
