When You’re Down and Troubled…

Friends are great, aren’t they? I have made some wonderful friends over the years – many of them live too far away for me to enjoy as often as I would like…

Today, I was shopping at Beaty Shoes here in Johnson City, TN. I had a stressful day at school after a Biology Lab exam gone awry and needed some shopping therapy.

As I was walking down the aisle, two older women were sitting on a bench. One was trying on shoes, the other was observing. The first stood in front of the floor mirror looking at the shoes…her friend said, “Those are hideous from the back!” I burst out laughing. Honestly, I couldn’t control it. They both looked over at me, maybe surprised that I had overheard the comment and I said, “May I borrow your honest friend while I shop?”

Now that I think about it, maybe that was her sister. At least that’s how MY sister and I shop. 🙂 Friends might say it a little sweeter like, “Oh, how about this pair instead.”
