Talking shoes should be so easy right? Today I took Sophie to the vet, it was a full house. I was the last to be seen, apparently you don't need an appointment only applies to the non German speaker that doesn't have a life and can wait 1.5 hours in a waiting room cause where else does she have to be, is me. Sophie loves going to the vet, she greets everyone all happily wagging her tail and jumping up to be noticed. Just gonna say bad day to start a diet, stuck in a waiting room with no one to talk to but a candy dish. It's not really my fault I almost emptied it, hour and a half is a long time. This is where an iphone would be handy I hear they have games and you can email etc... okay sorry back to the shoes! So normally when I lived in America if I saw someone with cute shoes or outfit I would ask a perfect stranger....Omg I love your shoes where did you get them...etc! Okay I have never done that here, granted I don't know how to say that in German. Plus I don't think Germans take well to strangers coming up asking about their shoes in an excited fashion.
Today I was sporting my last year Sperry's feeling all Spring like and happy the sun is shining kinda. Anyway the women working the front desk is wearing Sperry's too I have never seen them cool baby blue suede, love them especially with what she was wearing. So after my appointment I was paying and I said love your shoes are they Sperry? Why I asked when I already knew, I don't know! She speaks a tiny bit of English so I know she only understands some. Some days I'm starved for conversation! She comes behind the desk and says I don't know what they are? Hello who doesn't know what kind of shoe you are wearing! I said they are pretty, very Spring like. She just looked at me like I was insane. I couldn't get out of there fast enough!
I miss talking shoes! These are a picture of mine.I said to her I'm wearing Sperry's too, she just looked at them and went back to work! Omg I think I'm out of touch on how to have a shoe conversation...it's been too long.
