I gots my Jimmy Choos

So, while driving today, I noticed a lonely old shoe, just lying next to the road. I started to wonder as to how that shoe just so happened to get there. How do people lose just ONE shoe...on the side of the road???

Then, to my horror, I thought that maybe the person had been hit by a car and knocked right out of their shoe. Yeah, their SHOE, not shoes. Does that even happen?

If it does, and you survive, what do you do with the other shoe? Do you keep it and buy a new pair, then have, say, 2 right shoes and one left? Or do you just discard it?

I think I would look for the missing one and wear them as a pair.

  1. Even worse I saw a pair of little girl's pink jelly shoes two steps into a cross walk the other day. And the thoughts that ran through my head were not pretty.

  2. this reminds me of aidan's post about the red lacy bra she found a few weeks ago... http://ivyleagueinsecurities.com and she asked for people to comment on how the bra got there and why and who was the owner of said bra... in your case, i would like to think that the shoe was left because the heel was broken. have you seen the movie "in her shoes" with cameron diaz??? anyway, back to the shoe... the shoe has a broken heel and had to be discarded and was tossed out of the window of a car that belonged to someone very important and prestigious who couldn't possibly walk through a hotel lobby with a broken heel.

  11. I always wonder when I see random stuff like that ...that people just lose part of or one of...I would have stopped, picked it up, taken pictures and put it on Craigslits.com and asked for a shoe reward.
