There was also this incident in my office where my colleague who really loves heels, infact who needs the tower of babel to hear from Baba God when you gat those heels, the inches no be here, I was even fearing for her. Anyways, one day, like me she fell from the stairs with that mighty heels, tried to stand up but ended up falling again, it actually happened 3 times, then someone helped her up. Hmmm, I really felt for her cos she couldn't walk very well after that, but had to go home early. No be person tell am, for the next 6 months, she came to the office with flats.
As much as I love heels, my flats are so comfortable especially in this part of the world where there are bad roads. When I see ladies walking on bad roads with their finely built heels, I cringe. Why should you suffer your legs and those heels, especially your legs. In the absence of a car, its right to put those heels in a bag, wear your flats and then when you get to your location, you then rock the heels. It's far more better and comfortable that way.
There was actually another incident. I was in a bus on a Sunday morning, while waiting for the bus to get filled up, a lady passed us, shaking like fowl wey dey pour hot water. Then, my gaze and that of so many others were on her. Fine babe was probably coming back from morning mass, rocking her beautiful heels but babe no fit waka on it. Both her and the shoes were shaking, people were already laughing, the next thing ...gbam, fine babe was face down on the ground. Chai! Lagos people wicked ooo, instead of someone to help her up, they laughed and laughed, I must confess I didn't know when I laughed too (covers face). I'm sure she would have wished for the earth to open and swallow her, but as usual, it didn't, so she quietly stood up, picked her heels and walked bare-footed. If say she carry flats that embarrassment would have been avoided. So you see, flat shoes saves lives.
So when flying your "owambe" parry this weekend, remember to carry a flat along side. Do have a blissful weekend my lovelies.
