The Taming Of The Shoe

  1. 1. “The Taming of the Shoe”<br />By Julie Sullivan<br />(Yes, the sound you’re hearing is the sound of Shakespeare rolling over in his grave.)<br />
  2. 2. It all started in Austin, Texas, December, 2008…<br />
  3. 3. …when this woman decided she wanted to have some fun… <br />
  4. 4. …with some high school friends she got together with during Thanksgiving who loved the idea of her going to Texas with her high-heeled Mary Jane snake skin stilettos…<br />
  5. 5. This is Frank, my cabbie who drove me around downtown Austin. Frank likes my shoe. <br />
  6. 6. So does Stevie Ray Vaughan. <br />
  7. 7. Next stop…the famous Continental Club. <br />
  8. 8. Martinis at the Continental. But be careful ‘cuz you know what they say– “Martinis are like women’s breasts. One is not enough and three is too many.”<br />
  9. 9. Oops…had one too many breasts, uh, I mean martinis and got up on the stage and started singing.<br />
  10. 10. Next it’s on to the Arc Angels concert at the legendary Antone’s. <br />
  11. 11. Chris says, “Girrrrrl, I loves me some snake skin Mary Jane stilettos! I got a pair just like them in my closet!”<br />
  12. 12. Doyle says, “You want me to pose with your shoe?? Lady, you’re a freak…yet I find myself strangely attracted to that about you.”<br />
  13. 13. Here Iam puzzled by the fact that, unbeknownst to the rest of the population, Charlie Sexton has a shoe fetish. (Actually, someone off to the side called my name and while I was distracted Charlie tried to look down my shirt.)<br />
  14. 14. Charlie is paying homage to the shoe that he correctly identified as a “Mary Jane.” Impressive. Then, again, he did have on a pair of stylish, Italian-crafted snake skin boots so the man obviously recognizes good taste when he sees it. Let your metrosexual flag fly, baby!<br />
  15. 15. Alas, it could never work between Charlie and me. Even though we make a handsome, fine-footed couple, I just can’t be with someone who worships the shoes I walk in. The man might as well just scream out loud “I’m needy.”<br />
  16. 16. The slide show is over and I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Austin but there is one more person that is quintessential for the “Taming of the Shoe”…whom I will have to get a picture of during my next visit…<br />
  17. 17. That’s right, Leslie. I’m comin’ after YOU!!!<br />
