Appearances

There are a pair of coral colored, peep-toe, sling-back heels strewn across my kitchen floor.

I like them there. The only thing out of place.
They give the appearance that something untoward happened on the hard, cool floor.
Or perhaps on the counter.
Maybe against the cabinets.

I like planting those questions in people's minds.
I think I'll leave them there for a while.

Just for appearances sake.

I would just think they hurt your feet and you took them off in a hurry.

I'm usually the first one with my mind in the gutter, so I would assume the worst. Or the best. Guess it depends on how you look at it.

I like it the other way around.

I may seem so strait-laced and my house is always impeccable - no one could ever imagine what goes on behind closed doors.

Actually, no one could.

On the cold hard floor, on the counter or against the cabinets, huh?

You're naughty!!!

And I like it!

What color is coral? Is that like a blue?

Somehow I think I may have missed the point.

Burg - Actually, they're super comfy. I wear them as often as I can.

Jon - I think, in this particular case, it would be assuming the best. :)

Carl - You're making me think you're a secret member of some S&M or Swingers group. That's not a question!

Johnny - Well, someone has to be naughty. There are too many straight-laced people in the world. :)

Jason - Ah, I see we have a man's man in the house. If I thought for one second you didn't know what color Coral was, I'd tell ya. I think you got the point.

Got company coming over? I'd think his parents would be great right about now...

Ah, but the grand thing about the shoes in the middle of the floor is that you can make salacious assumptions, but that doesn't necessarily make them true - as the lovely Miss Burg pointed out.

Shoes are fairly innocuous.
Now, say, if I left red lace boyshorts with black satin lacing on the living room floor . . . Well. Then his parents could raise an eyebrow or four.

Carl from L.A. said...

See? You made salacious assumptions about me without me putting anything out. Yes, I'm that good.
