Wow! It’s Wednesday! The First Pair of Shoes You Bought With Your Own $

blackconverseSo, I’m going to keep this short and sweet, since I have about 1,000 things to do today with a baby that I’m sure would rather be home and playing, than battling the shopping and mailing throngs or watching me type of mailing labels — thrilling thought that is.

What’s insane is that I bought most of my stuff online, so technically there shouldn’t be those many gifts to shop for. It’s the little stuff that adds up. So many new people on the Holiday card list this year. Also, we have to pick up a gift card for our mail person, who I’ve never met, but seems to be doing a really good job. And we’ve also got to ship that gift to our godson … anyway my day is a mess.

Weirdly, I remember neither, but I do vaguely recall this kid I dated in junior high. Our relationship consisted a hugging each other whenever we saw each other and occasionally talking on the phone.

And I think the first pair of shoes that I brought with my own money was a pair of Converse, which coincidentally was the last pair of shoes that I bought with my own money. Except my original ones were black, and my latest ones are azalea. Yes, azalea! I’ve always just really adored Converse…

But what was the first pair of shoes that you bought with your own hard-earned money?
