Pink Keds

I don’t play the guitar, but I have one in the loft…

I bought them years ago, on a whim.  They were on sale, and I thought they were cute, campy.  I wore them once.

Lately, I’ve  been shopping my shoe morgue of great deals, rarely worn. I slipped the Keds on with a pair of jeans and now wear them often.  Perhaps pink footwear is  “me,” after all.   At age 62, I’m breaking out of my mold.   A young friend said I was stylin’.  I’m not sure if that’s good or bad. 
They do make a statement.  Are pink Keds a metaphor, my rebellion against aging?  If asked, that’s the explanation I’ll offer.  But just between you and me, they are deliciously comfy  At my age, comfort is the deciding factor.
