I did not teach them to walk in heels!
I was listening to a couple of young women in the green room the other day (we were in the cast of our local production of Mary Poppins) . One said, “I’m so glad my mom taught me to walk in heels!” What!?!?! Another thing I have inadvertently forgotten to teach my girls, and I have 4 daughters who are fully grown now!
OK – that’s a lie – I did not forget to teach them, because I didn’t know I was supposed to teach them, because I didn’t know there was “a way to walk in heels” that varied from wearing any other shoe.
Fortunately my daughters walk very well in heels despite my ignorance. They must have picked up the skill from someone else. But just in case your mother did not teach you either the trick (so the ladies in the green room say) is to walk toe heel, toe heel. I think I’ll stick to my vibrams!
