Who's really impressed by black shoes anyway?

My black work type shiny shoes were dug out from under the bed last night for wearing today, the first time not wearing runners, pink crocs or slippers since maternity leave started... the reason? I wanted to impress my new classmates and teachers with my professional and tidy appearance, yes I returned to college today. In black shoes. And I slightly twisted my ankle.
Tomorrow's plan includes bringing baby danger cushions with me to class, as he has promised with his big puppy blue eyes that he will behave and let me absorb all the writing goodness with no interruptions. Anyway in return I have to promise to walk him around for 20 mins ahead of each session so that he'll get to sleep through it.
The stupid black shoes are going back under the bed, they don't even have a heel on them (as you'll know if you read watercats, I'm actually a giant in real life). Sneakers ahoy for the next little while.
Just as well it's only a 3 day course.

I thought all the young hep-cats shuffled around campus in their jammies and bunny-footies these days. No wonder I get stares (and the occasional escort from police) when I go hang out on the quad.

I like the sound of the pink crocs. I might even write something if I had a pair. But I don't.

come to think of it, i can't even remember what shoes they were wearing, maybe i should go with the crocs after all...
acorn, you'd have been elected king of the campus if you'd have been there!!

My crocs are a boring blue - I have no imagination :)

Good luck with baby danger cushions!

Once you've sampled the easy shoe life, it is hard to go back! What are you studying??
