Claude is the Streetwise vendor who is often found outside of J’s workplace. He is one of the most compassionate, heartfelt men I have ever met. Every time I see him, it brings a smile to my face, because he has a beautiful sort of faith I’ve found in few other people. He knows what’s going on in J’s life and mine, and he prays for us in our struggles. How many other complete strangers have you met who will do that for you?

I was browsing the internets today for a completely unrelated topic when I came across a user’s page at 43things.com. In among the other, relatively normal goals was this:
Now if you’re familiar with the layout of 43things, after each goal, there’s usually a number representing the number of people who want to do that goal. The number after “become anorexic”?
These just disturb me so much. They have everything wrong with them. Why should babies wear heels? So they will encourage pedophiles (after all, what are high heels about if not sex)? So they can start malforming their foot bones as early as possible? I can’t think of any good reason to do this. Although I should give the creators some credit – assuming that the shoes are made of a soft/stretchy fabric, they probably won’t do any damage to a little girl’s feet. But these are being promoted as “her first high heels”. Who is making her second and third high heels, and what does it do to a girl’s body development if she’s got her own high heels to wear starting as soon as she can walk?
Unfortunately, I would not be surprised if this becomes a big trend. So cute! So heel-arious! You get to make that pun every time someone comments on them! I just hope that people who put these on their children get a good kick in the eye with a baby high heel the first time they’re trying to change their baby’s diaper.
That would be heel-arious.
