Hello everyone. Welcome back to my participation in Part 3, Day 18 of the 30-day Blogging Challenge. I took a short break from the blogging challenge to address some other projects that were pressing.

I'm back now and will focus on completing this challenge. I intend to finish the blogging challenge per my commitment. For today, the topic given to respond to is: When was the last time you tried something new?

Wow, it's take a moment for me to remember the last time I tried something new. That's because it takes a lot for me to step out of my comfort zone and try something completely different I've never done before.

I remember about ten years ago, my daughter wanted to purchase a matching pair of high top tennis shoes. I'm from the old school of thought. My shoes are loafers. Socks; always. I don't understand what's going on today with not wearing socks. Anyway, I consented after she kept telling me how cute they would look on me.

Having an over sized foot length for a normal lady, I should have know how they would look. My family kept urging me to go ahead and wear them.

Well, needless to say my daughter looked cute in her tennis. However, it was another matter with me. The moment I placed them on, I was the laughing stock of my family.

My legs are skinny, and the high top tennis shoes laced all the way up made me look like Olive in Popeye. I'm a senior citizen. I had no business wearing high top tennis shoes. I gave the shoes to the Good Will. Hopefully, someone else will get enjoyment out them, and they won't look like a pole stuck in the hole of a long log.

That was the first and last time I wore high top tennis shoes.


Hola a todos. Bienvenidos de nuevo a mi participación en la tercera parte, día 18, del Reto Blogger de 30 días. Me tomé un breve descanso del desafío de los blogs para ocuparme de otros proyectos que me apremiaban.

Ahora estoy de vuelta y me centraré en completar este reto. Tengo la intención de terminar el reto de los blogs según mi compromiso. Para hoy, el tema dado para responder es: ¿Cuándo fue la última vez que intentaste algo nuevo?

Vaya, me ha costado un momento recordar la última vez que probé algo nuevo. Y es que me cuesta mucho salir de mi zona de confort y probar algo completamente diferente que nunca había hecho.

Recuerdo que, hace unos diez años, mi hija quería comprar un par de zapatillas altas a juego. Yo soy de la vieja escuela de pensamiento. Mis zapatos son mocasines. Calcetines; siempre. No entiendo qué pasa hoy en día con no llevar calcetines. De todas formas, accedí después de que ella me dijera lo bien que me quedarían.

Al tener un pie demasiado largo para una mujer normal, debería haber sabido cómo me quedarían. Mi familia me insistió en que me los pusiera.

Bueno, no hace falta decir que mi hija estaba muy guapa con sus tenis. Sin embargo, lo mío era otra cosa. En el momento en que me los puse, fui el hazmerreír de mi familia.

Mis piernas son delgadas, y los tenis de caña alta atados hasta arriba me hacían parecer Olive en Popeye. Soy una persona mayor. No tenía por qué llevar zapatillas de tenis de caña alta. Regalé los zapatos a la Buena Voluntad. Con suerte, alguien más podrá disfrutar de ellas y no parecerán un palo clavado en el agujero de un tronco largo.

Very entertaining story! I stay away from certain styles, too, because they make my feet look big, so I can understand! I'm one of those who seldom wears socks, though. My feet get so hot with them on!

Hello. Thanks for visiting. I'm happy to hear someone knows my agony. I wear shoe size 9 wide on good days, lol. I take HBP meds and blood thinners, so my extremities are always cold, 365 days. I wear socks year round. If temps drop to 75, then 2 pair.

Take care, and stay safe.

OMG, our feet are the same size! 😃 Depending on how the shoe is cut, I can sometimes wear an 8.5 or sometimes it takes a 9.5, but most of the time 9 does the trick, and wide-width is better than a 'B' width!

I knew I wasn't the only child in the odd foot category. Yes, my Bunionectomy didn't even help. But only got one done. Never went back for #2. Now I've mixmatched big toes.

However, I'm in a predicament that I read numerous others are started growing back about 5 years after surgery. Now my foot is older and wiser and admonishing me for its constant pain and suffering with the screw it has to carry around all day.

Not much more can be said as my toe is throbbing as I write. Take care.

Bang, I did it again... I just rehived your post!
