This post is in honor of Mom, but it's not because Sunday is Mother's Day. It's because of something we celebrate on May 3rd.
Mom always worked outside the home. Quite frankly, if she hadn’t needed to and wanted to, she probably would have – just as a means of escape from her five children. But I digress.
She traveled a good bit with her job, including numerous flights from Columbia (SC) to Chicago. On one particular occasion, she had important meetings scheduled in Chicago and couldn’t quite decide what to wear.
Finally settling on a white outfit with a touch of brown, she then had to decide about the shoes. Her options were white sling pumps or her two-tone brown pumps. She put on one of each to see which looked and felt better.
The next time she thought about the shoes was when she was in the gate area of the airport, getting ready to board the plane. She thought about it because people standing around her were looking at her feet and snickering. She looked down and gasped!
In the Atlanta airport, a man walking past in the opposite direction, smiled and said, "I'll bet you've got another pair just like that at home, don't you?” Oh, yes, she most definitely had a matching pair at home!
Yep, today is "National Two Different Colored Shoes Day." Have a happy one, Mom!
