There is a disclaimer that all of these were ran past my friend that is black and she thought the shoe conversation was hilarious so there is no ill will or hatred meant in this but yes, I had this conversation.
Me: Rich, help me find my sandals before we go out because my feet hurt. (the dogs push them under the sofa and I lose them)
Rich: I only see the lizard ones and one of each of the other two. Which ones do you want?
Me: The lizard ones hurt my feet. Just give me the blacks or the Mexicans. Oh Lord, that sounded like I was hiring someone.
(one pair is black and the other pair I got in Mexico)
