Stolen Shoe Giveaway AND a Trifecta writing assignment

Anyone remember the mysterious shoes that showed up on my doorstep last month? And, more importantly, anyone remember when I learned they were purchased by my dumbass credit card thief and decided to give them away here at ODNT?

Well, ladies and gentlemen …. THE SHOES HAVE SPOKEN!!


So now, in a spectacular display of womanly multitasking, I will reveal the winner of the contest while also answering Trifecta’s current writing prompt: “This weekend we’re asking for 33 words about a new beginning.”

Putting the Shoe on the Other Foot

In an effort to cleanse the souls (or should that be soles?) of these ill-begotten shoes and give them new purpose, I have elected to award them to my daughter’s fifth grade teacher.


Here she is now. Enjoying them in all of their newly-emerged-butterfly purity.


Screw you, thief.


The Mystery of the Surprise Shoes – SOLVED!

Remember the post I wrote last week about the surprise pair of size 9 strappy leather heels that showed up on my doorstep? I couldn’t figure out why (if he was ordering them for me) Dave had miscalculated my feet to be two sizes larger or why (if he was ordering them for himself) he’d miscalculated his feet to be three sizes smaller. Never mind the fact that they don’t match any of his suits at all.

But now it all makes sense. Because I got a call from Discover. It seems my credit card was stolen just before the holidays. Which prompts me to write ….

Dear Despicable, Lowlife, Smells-Like-Bad-Things Larcenist,

The jig is up!

I’m not sure who you are or how you managed to appropriate the numbers on my credit card … but you will get nothing from me and mine this year. The shoes you selected for yourself or some barefooted loved one are now safely in my possession. I have no idea what I’m doing with them yet. I could donate them to a number of friends who will gaudily bejewel and bedazzle them to create spectacular throws for the widely-popular Muses parade held in these parts a few days before Mardi Gras.

I’ve also considered using them as a hammer as the sturdy wooden heel would serve this purpose well. Or I could use one to level my old rickety washing machine. Oooh! Or the wood could help Herve keep his teeth filed down to an acceptable length for a hamster. There are so many possibilities that I just can’t decide. In any event, YOU will not be receiving them … as you were somehow wily enough to steal my credit card and yet too stupid to change the shipping address on your shoe order. Dumb … and might I add … ass.

And, while we’re on the subject of your stupidity …. my friends and I are curious why, if you had the ability to purchase a full spectrum of fashionable shoes across the globe and clearly no morals with which to accessorize them, you would elect to buy a cheap shit pair on clearance for $7.26.

You’re not very good at this life of crime business.

Which also reminds me … your repeated attempts to find an online friend at buddies4you.com as well as your clumsy efforts to purchase tickets via Delta Airlines have left a paper trail right to your front door (meaning your computer, jack ass) and thus your days of online shopping with (aka STEALING) my and the rest of the world’s money are coming to an end.

I hope you had a Merry Christmas as 2013 is likely to start getting a little suckier for you.
