I attended a bar the other night.. watched several young ladies flaunt all that they had in sequined dresses that were way out-of-place for the peanut shell floor; however, each generation has their own mating call.
I watched as they tripped over one another and made attempts of boot-stomping dances in platform heels.. As they started to do the dances.. many began to remove their shoes.. I had to laugh as I was exchanging idle chatter with a few women similar to my age.. as we watched these young vixens strike up a line-dance.. we laughed as they started to remove their big girl shoes in order to complete the stomps..
Being true to who I am… I got up and immediately picked up on the quick little steps… with my 6″ platforms I was not only able to keep my shoes on, but, complete the steps perfectly… the ladies laughed as I felt that not only was I doing it for me.. but, for them as well.
When I think about young ladies wearing skin-tight black evening dresses and platform shoes.. I still have to chuckle that when the stomping really gets going.. it’s the 41-year-old that not only does the dance, but, does it in the shoes she came in.
Although I may never show up in a skin-tight black evening dress …. I find comfort in the fact that if and when the mood strikes me I can still kick up my heels, rather than kicking them off.
In the words of VanZant……
Just sayin’, platforms were made for wearing.. never tossed aside.
