Transference

Trans·fer·ence  (trns-fûrns) n. The redirection of attitudes and emotions towards a substitute.

Hmm. Is this what I’m suffering? Transference? Since April, when I basically gave up junk food, the pairs of shoes in my closet have multiplied exponentially. Am I trading one bad habit for another? I mean, I had to have these. Then I saw these, and those were too pretty to pass up. I’m ashamed to say the list goes on. So, am I mental? Do I need a shoe intervention? And who’s going to come to my house and pry them out of my cold, dead paws?

Hey, it’s Thursday, so that  makes everything OK. One more day till you-know-when. I’m up for a party this weekend. Anyone else? My house. Bring new shoes.

As long as you’re not spending every last dime you have on them, you’re just fine, Birdie. That’s as much sage advice as you’re going to… Read more »

You just transfer to your hearts content!
Liz on one shoe shopping trip (yes, she has shoe trips) purchased 9 (count em) 9 pairs of shoes. You would like the shoe vault. :) My role in her life that day was simply being the schlepper!
As Mavis said…as long as it hurts no one including you …you’re safe!

I trust that Fridays are “put on your dancing shoes” days!

Think of it this way: Shoes you can enjoy more than once. Junk food is gone when you eat it.

I’d much rather wear my ‘bad habit’ on my feet than other places on my body! :P
