The Shallowness of My Soul

As a rule, I tend to think that people are very multifaceted, and that we can really only show one side of ourselves at any given moment. Sometimes this helps me give people the benefit of the doubt when I think, “Wow, what a waste of space/idiot/bad driver/terrible/obnoxious/inane/irritating/willfully stupid person.”

I am hoping this has garnered me enough good karma for what is about to follow, which should leave you in no doubt whatsoever about just how shallow I can be sometimes. Currently, the all-consuming dilemma raging in my soul is not about politics, bloodbaths in the Congo, domestic violence, child abuse, the depletion of the ozone layer, global environmental choices, or anything remotely important.

Hell, it’s not even about which room in my house I should clean tomorrow! (Because I know I’m going to be too busy riding my motorcycle to clean them all. Obviously.)

What I am agonizing over is: shoes. Which pair am I more desperate to have RIGHT NOW?


Sam Edelman, Beatrix, gunmetal.


Duoboots, Ziller, black.

GAAAAH. Why, why am I wasting so much brainspace on this?
