Puttin' on yer weinie shoes!

The male animal and his shoe size!

My husband has this pair of shoes that give him the illusion of small feet. They were super expensive shoes and it's just plain weird how these shoes manage to shrink his feet from a size 11 and 1/2 down to an 8 or something.

I was in bed the other morning and he walked over to my side and asked, "Do these shoes make my feet look small?"

I looked down, blinked a couple times, looked again, blinked a couple more times and then said, "Yeah, but...I don't get it. How can a pair of shoes shrink your feet?"

"I don't know," he replied, "but I can't wear them. You know what they say about men with small feet. I don't want anyone thinking..."

"What?" I teased.

"You know...."

I laughed. "Honey," I said, "You don't need to worry."

"Yeah, but nobody else knows that!"

Now you know what goes on in our house. I recently spent the weekend with my husband, his two brother and all his many male cousins - I kid you not, I gave birth to the only two girls in that family - and all they talked about was hand size, foot it width or length? Is it the distance between your extended thumb and the end of your pinkie? Men...

"I have long fingers," somebody said.

"But I have a wide palm," said another person.

"I have big feet."

"Yeah, but my toes are longer than yours."

All weekend.

On another note - sorry about the late post!
