April 18, 2009: Where are the Wellies?

Wellies "What do you mean you don't stock Wellingtons in a size 38!" I exclaim to the man in the fishing supplies shop. "I'm sorry, but fishermen are usually of the larger male variety," he tries to explain. "Aren't there any short fishermen out there?" I ask. "Well, I'm sorry, but there are no Wellingtons in your size in the country. I'll have to order some for you, can you come back next week?" 
[1 week later]

"Nooooooooooo. I meant a Ladies' size, 7, not a Men's size 7!"

"Try it anyway."

I'm convinced some men will never understand shoes!

May be you can stuff tissue paper in the toe. That's what I do with my daughter. She has tiny feet too............Now if I can only get her (my daughter) to put the shoes on the right foot.
