Perhaps if I walked a mile in his shoes I'd understand why, oh why, my husband insists on keeping these shoes!!
I did a massive cleaning out of my side of the closet complete with getting rid of 3 bags of stuff, thoroughly vacuuming/cleaning the floor, baseboards, and shelves. And I couldn't help noticing these shoes completely caked in dust, way back under some hanging clothes on my husband's side of the closet.
Although I was not cleaning out his stuff, to be helpful I drug the shoes out, and later said to my husband, "Since these were so coated in dust that I actually vacuumed a thick layer of dust out of them, I'm assuming you want to get rid of them."
"Those are my favorite shoes!"
Me: "But you obviously have not worn them in ages! And judging by how they look you really shouldn't be wearing them!"
Him: "I wore those shoes the whole time I was away at business school (allow me to interject that this was 12 years ago). They are great shoes; I'm never getting rid of them!"
Now you know the uphill battle I'm fighting to get organized around here!
Sentimental attachment to shoes!
Pack rattery at its finest!
