Common Sense: Wow. Those are some really adorable shoes.
Suzanne: I know, right? Zebra stripes plus red accents?
CS: Yep, they are sure cute, but wow, look at those heels. How are high they?
S: Well, 4 inches, I think, but the sole is actually a 1/2″ platform.
CS: And they fit?
S: Believe it or not, yeah! They had my size and they felt really good!
CS: Wow, that’s amazing, because most of the cutest shoes don’t even come in a size 11. They “felt good,” hmmm? They are actually comfortable? Really?
S: Well, I wouldn’t want to stand in them for hours or walk a mile in them, but yeah, comfortable enough for heels.
S: Well, anyway, they are for dressing up, so it doesn’t matter if I can’t work in them all day long.
CS: Dressing up, you say? And where would you be going when you dressed up and wore these shoes?
S: Well, um. You know. When I dress up.
CS: And you dress up how often?
CS: Yeah. Exactly.
S: I’d wear them to church every time I play!
CS: Yeah. Cause Zebra print shoes totally scream CHURCH. And don’t even try to suggest that you wear them when you dress up to play for funerals, cause I know that’s where you think you are going next.
S: But look at how CUTE they are!!!! And get this! I found them online for $15 cheaper than they were at the mall! They were $55 at the mall, but only $40 online!! With free shipping! I’d totally be saving money by getting them online.
CS: Spending $40 on shoes you don’t need is NOT saving money.
S: But look at how CUTE they are!!!
CS: It doesn’t matter how CUTE they are if they are totally impractical.
S: But it’s almost my birthday!!!
CS: Still doesn’t matter. You can’t have them.
S: But I NEED them. I fell asleep DREAMING about them.
CS: You NEED them? What you NEED is HELP.
