Are Friends Like Good Shoes?

That is not precisely the hypothesis of Julie Neidlinger's post, but I like it anyway.

Friends are Like Good Shoes:

  • You can never have too many.
  • You still need the shoes you wear only occasionally.
  • It takes a while to be really comfortable in any shoe.
  • Some shoes look promising but turn out to be a disappointment. Returning them or trading them in is the only solution, even if it means going without for a while.
  • There are shoes that are so reliable, so comfortable or so valuable, you keep them forever.
  • Some people only need a few.
How Friends are Not Like Good Shoes:

  • Sometimes the pretty ones that pinch turn out to be the ones you keep forever.
  • The really good ones are not worse for the wear. Ever
  • Time only improves friendships.
  • Ugly friends still warrant our affection. Ugly shoes, never.
  • Good shoes keep your feet dry. Not even your best friend can accomplish this.

I may have to rethink my original hypothesis.

(I've always wanted to say that.)

I've known some really awful shoes.

I've been thinking of additions.

How about "It takes a long time to find a really good pair."

Or "Often you don't know what you're looking for until you see it right in front of you."

This is too funny!
My best girlfriends and I were having lunch and we were comparing one another to shoes! For example, my friend Lexi is a black hightop with a zipper - dependable and secretly sexy!
