Is a foot fetish called a feetish?

Next question: should Miss Grey Cup be disqualified if she contracts athletes' foetus? But I digress.

Having been a girl watcher since I was old enough to differentiate, I appreciate the finer things in life. But until Diana Krall released her album "The Look of Love", I never knew I had a foot fetish.

I remarked on this to a good friend, a leather craftsman, who took over his father's shoe repair shop and who introduced me to the music of Diana Krall.  I said, "How can she walk in those things?"

He told me that one day a very tall, very lovely young woman came into the shop with a pair of heels to be mended. He asked her the same question, "How can you walk in those things?"

She said, "I don't.  I go into a lounge and trade shoes out of my handbag. then I dangle one off my toe and wait to see who buys me a drink". I gather the line formed on the left.

There is much more to music than Country, in case you were worried, so now, for your listening enjoyment, I give you Miss Diana Krall.

  1. Diana Krall is in my music collection.
    Great sound
    Feet are neat, but I'm a boob man myself (am I suppose to appologise for that?)

  2. I love Diana Krall too -- such a wonderful performer! And that album cover has always caught my eye too. But I know that shoes like that are not meant to be walked in. They're meant to be worn in bed!

  3. "Athlete's foetus"?!? Bahahaha!! I can understand if not actually share your aesthetic appreciation for the album cover, and I agree on its contents! Diana Krall is in my music library, too. (A bit of trivia: Apparently she lives 'just down the road a piece' from our new place here on the west coast... if by 'a piece' you mean about 20 miles.)

    1. Yes, I knew you would know that. I hope you can 'run into her' someday, since you are practically neighbours. Is she ever home, do you suppose?

    2. She probably has staff specially hired to keep riffraff like me away from her house. ;-)

    3. I couldn't figure out why she would marry some old guy 10 years her senior. Then I remembered Tanya did the same. Cant figure that out either but won't complain.

  4. Oh yes, Diana Krall, gorgeous music, gorgeous lady, and I could never stand up in shoes like that let alone actually take a step forwards.

    1. Girls in Kyiv walk on cobblestone streets in shoes not quite as flimsy as those. Poise, balance, and calf muscles like a marathon runner.
