Initially, they started congregating quietly. Silently, they crept from the summer closet, sneaking down the hall.
Very soon, their forces were joined by the occupants of the winter closet and overflow over-the-door shoe rack.
They congregated at the top of the stairs and developed their plan of attack. Winter shoes and summer shoes; they had a common goal.
They could have chosen to use the chair lift to go down the stairs, but opted instead for making it on their own; building stamina and strength for the battle ahead.
Sneakers joined with stilettoes. The flats and the pumps were in agreement.
Flip flops and slingbacks were united. Nothing could stop them, now.
They continued to search for their prey. Through the pool hall they meandered, confusing the dog and the cat excessively.
The slippers yelled for the heels to follow their lead. They knew where to go.
Bravely, they marched through the dining room. Could this be where the enemy lie?
No, it was but a ploy to confuse and delay them from reaching their goal.
They couldn’t be stopped or fooled any longer! Bravely they forged forward in search of the enemy.Around the corner of the kitchen they trudged, knowing they were nearing their goal. Around the corner into the mud room, they could sense they were close.
Past the dog dish…there it was! The attack began and they were relentless! They kicked, stomped and dug their heels in.
The enemy was theirs. Victory was afoot!
The ugly winter galoshes were no match for the dainty flip flops or wedge sandals. Cute shoes will always win!
Yeah, you guys better hide. You’re next.
