Pointy-Toed Shoes

Today I bought my first-ever pair of pointy-toed shoes. They’re super pointy.


I have wide feet. It’s a character flaw; some may say my one and only. If you also suffer from this condition, you already know that pointy toes and wide feet do not get along. But today was the last day I could use my 25% off coupon, and they were on sale, and they have this wacky print that I would never ever have considered before in my life, and they fit my big ole stompers.

And if there’s anything anyone can learn from the senseless murders of dozens of people who were killed early this morning in Orlando for simply having a good time being who they are, let it be this: there’s never enough time to be yourself.

It doesn’t matter who you are, as long as you’re not too much of an asshole. Someone will care about you just the way you are, even if it’s only because they don’t know any better, and you’re a real jerk sometimes. Or maybe you’re actually really amazing and not enough people have noticed yet; don’t worry, we will.

Shave your eyebrows, and hack your body, and by all that’s holy, buy a pair of pointy-toed shoes one time in your life. Be proud of these things. Be proud of yourself.

Be who you are, and be loved for it.
