For me, it's stilletto shoes and boots, I have over 100 pair! Other contenders: beauty treaments, night school, dance lessons.
Mine mostly goes to these: travel, lingerie, golf at the best places, gifts (and that doesnt mean money) to others for no particular reason.
I'd love to have all those shoes but personally I hate shopping!
Lombard write: I kinda asked this on another thread, but I'll ask it again. What's the thing with Shoes?
Why can men get by with two pairs? The old ones that feel great but smell bad and are falling apart, and the new ones that hurt like hell, but will someday turn into the old ones that smell bad and will fall apart.
What if men all owned at least 100 pairs of shoes, like so many women. We wouldn't be able to pay for dinner. I think the species would soon become extinct.
I will repeat what I said in another post. We men DO NO NOTICE YOUR SHOES. You must be buying them for each other. We only notice the very provacative angle of your rear end forced jauntily into the air by those circus stilts you are wearing.
While the combination of 4" inch heels and a good push-up bra is effective, you don't need one for every conceivable Cher costume change. We men are simple critters. We respond predictably. In fact, complicated shoes just confuse us and give us that curious george bush look.
BTW, nothing I said here applies to shiny leather thigh highs. Spend your childrens inheritence on those babies.
Lombard, I answered your question in the other thread: First, it's disposable income; it goes without saying that necessities are taken care of first!
Also, it's artistic expression, and, save for the one killer pair we trot out to knock your eyes out, THEY HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH MEN. (That's OK, yes? To have interests and pursuits that have NOTHING TO DO WITH ATTRACTING MEN? Or is that just too subversive . . . ?)
I searched for the perfect hamburger - found! I searched for the worlds best BBQ - found! I searched for the woman who could make me scream - not found - but judging by that picture of those legs in those boots I could probably whimper :)
if i may add a thing or two.for those ladies here for reasons they shouldnt be.i have a question. can money buy love?i have the answer if you care to challenge me. and to the beautiful ladie(thegoodlife) you nailed it baby.theres always develish people on real sites.im glad you stepped up to comment to them.keep smiling it looks great on you. love chris parisplastering at yahell
This thread has been going for quite a while and been pretty humorous but the the last comment hit home pretty hard and was upsetting because some of us(like me) who can't have kids but would like them SHOULD be upset by it. I understand it's all in good fun I am just giving a heads up that I personally find it offensive..sorry if I upset anyone
Remember- You will NEVER have a race horse, but you might get the old mule. You are as exciting as a old worn out tennis shoe.
There must be some excitement in there somewhere or else "how did the shoe get worn out" ???
Not sure on the race horse vs. mule thing. One seems very high maintenance, and the other doesn't breed well (actually at all)... On second thought, perhaps a hard working partner that can't reproduce might be just what the doctor ordered... LOL
