The Weekend

Well dearies we're off. Terrified that the summer will end without us having squeezed every ounce of fun out of it. The fam and I are off on an impromtu weekend trip. I will post again when we return, with all sorts of tales of fun and misadventure. Until I return I have a questions for you all that I have always wondered about:

If Cinderella's shoes were such a perfect fit then why did they fall off in the first place?

Was it just an extra bit of magic from that wonderful fairy godmother (why didn't I get one of those)? Or can we say that perhaps Cinderella wanted to be found, and it was just an elaborate game of hard to get. If that is the case, you think she would have left a better clue than a shoe. Honestly that was a pretty big gamble, I mean its a little hard to believe that she was the onle size six and a half in the kingdom, but then maybe her shoes were such a perfect fit that they really would only fit her, but if this was the case then...(see above question). You see my problem, I just can't figure it out, so I'd love to hear what you all think.

I think she caught her foot on the step and it knocked it off. I also like to think that her feet were so tiny that she knew there wouldn't be anyone else it would fit except her.

have you ever tried running in heels?

That glass slipper never would have fit on my big feet! If dainty feet were the criteria for winning Prince Charming, then I would be left out in the rain.

Nice blog, Nic.

I agree with Morning Glory...she had very dainty tootsies, and said-shoe's heel got stuck on the step in her mad dash down the staircase. It's the only logical exclamation so that we don't lie awake at night after reading the bedtime story! ;)

Can you imagine how much a foot would sweat in a GLASS shoe? Slipped out, her feet did. That's the only possible explanation.

I'm with Stephanie. Slippery glass. My question is, why didn't it break?
