I was shopping with a friend a few weeks ago, and we looked at a cute pair of peep toe heels.
She said to me, "Ohhh, those are cute!"
I responded, "Yea, they're adorable, but I think my feet must be deformed because peep toe shoes make my toes hurt. My toes go through holes, and, a few hours later, I feel as through my little toes are being cut off. And, by the end of the day, I am certain that I have just lost my toes for life."
Interlude for the men...these are peep toe shoes...see the hole or 'peep' in the toes...
My friend responds: "Uh, yea Kara, that is just what happens in peep toe shoes. Your feet are not deformed, they make everyone's toes feel like they're going to fall off. They just don't all talk about it."
I looked at my friend, completely aghast.
"Are you kidding me?" I responded. And then I continued blubbering on like an idiot, totally shocked that I was not the only human on earth whose toes were mutilated by adorable peep toe shoes. I explained how I wanted peep toe shoes for my wedding, but I also wanted to be able to walk, and asked why nobody had ever told me this before....
She looked at me, unsurprised, and just responded, "This is a secret women just don't share. The pain of peep toes."
Well I am here today to break the silence for all of those women living in pain. Peep toes hurt. But they are so darn cute. And that my friends, is a crying shame.
What other secrets are out there that nobody has told me???
