Shopping for shoes at DSW for 2+ hours is quite maddening. How else to explain getting Chinese takeout on the way home after buying approx $100 worth of groceries last night. I’m sure you think I have no willpower or self discipline and maybe you’re partly right. But it’s not easy. At the top of my street alone are 5 Asian restaurants. They include: Bamee Noodle Shop, Mars Restaurant, New Peking Mandarin and Szechwan, New Toyko, and Nohana Japanese Restaurant. And to think I don’t even live in Chinatown. Oh, and we won’t even talk about all the other restaurants close by. I know. I know. Excuses! Excuses! But I really was too tired to come home and cook anything. Btw, in case you are wondering (and I know most of you aren’t), I purchased a pair of Steve Madden sandals and a pair of Saucony running shoes.

Don’t beat yourself up. Guys get into shoe-shopping, too, but we just don’t talk about it. I once spent several hours picking out the right cowboy boots in a Wyoming western-wear emporium. And the last time I bought running shoes here in Chicago, the ordeal last at least 90 minutes.
