********************It was back to work today for me after staying home and nursing my cold yesterday so I was able to get my morning fix of The Today Show. I only watch it at work as I just never seem to have the time to sit down in front of the TV at home anymore with my friends Matt, Meredith, and Al as I either never get up in time on my days off or there's this thing called the internet that I appear to be addicted to! We generally have the TV on at work until about 8:30 when it starts to get too busy and because of that sometimes I'm able to catch a little bit of what's going on in the world.
This morning on their "Free to Be Me" segment, Ann Curry did an interesting feature called "Why do we splurge?" What caught my attention was the statement that the average woman owns 19 pairs of shoes but regularly wears only 4. Really? 19 pairs of shoes? I made note of this little fact and vowed to count my shoes when I got home from work just to see if I qualified as being the average woman when it came to the number of pair of shoes I own and wear.
After looking through my closet, under the bed, and anyplace else I keep my shoes, the final tally was 20 pairs - if you count my 2 pairs of slippers and 1 pair of golf cleats. Good Lord, when did I get that many shoes? And how many of them do I wear regularly? Let's see, there are my favorite worn-out white slippers, my work boots, and my blue & white New Balance sneakers. Ha! I only wear 3 pairs regularly so that just goes to show I'm not average!
How about the rest of you, are you average when it come to shoes?? Inquiring feet wanna know!
