This is not a funny story.

I've been craving some flat, black, below-the-knee boots. I found a pair that looked comfy (for a potential NYC all-day jaunt) and were on sale. Yippee, I thought, when I realized they actually had my size in stock! I ordered away, despite knowing that I have chubby calves and can never wear boot that go up to the knees.

Alas, the boots came the day before Thanksgiving and I couldn't really get them up past my ankles. Mr. FGD shook his head sadly, perhaps to commiserate with me, or perhaps thinking if only he had known he was marrying someone with fatty calves....


I prefer to think he was commiserating with me.


I sadly packed the boots back up and put them in our guest room.


Then came Thanksgiving day morning when it was time to get rid of all clutter in the house in preparation of our house guests. I asked Mr. FGD where I should put the giant box o' skinny boots and he said, in the garage. Now, picture this, a 2-car garage filled with 2 cars, a garbage bin and recycling bin that the HOA nazi's require go in our garages, and several tall shelves filled with excess crap such as Christmas decorations, luggage, extra TP and paper towels, etc. This does not leave much room for the subject box. I quickly laid the box on top of the recycling bin and ran back inside the house to finish cleaning up.


You can probably see where this is going.


Yesterday was trash and recycling day.


I'll just leave it at that.

For your future boots, I, as a Fatty-Calved Monkey, can attest that such things may be stretched by a cobbler and made to fit our strong legs.

IHY!!! I could eat for THREE MONTHS, at LEAST, for the cost of those boots. I'm so heartbroken for you and pissed at you at the same time.

Criminal. Those boots are gorgeous!

Mr. FGD said...

if leather boots get recycled, do they end up becoming a cow eventually?

Claire said...

I feel good that I"m not the only one with fat calves.
But looking beyond myself, I'm sorry for your loss.
