31 Days of Spook – High Heels

17 Oct

Oh ladies – do you have those favorite pair of high heels sitting in your closet?  You know the ones – the ones with the red bottoms that you just can’t live without?  Did you know that high heels were originally created for men to wear?  Butchers wore them in their shops so they could avoid stepping in blood.  Okay – you can say it now.  EEWW – can you imagine that?!

Of course, mom says that it might be kind of fun watching some big masculine men walking around in high heels.  Lord knows she’s not thinking of daddy here at the Hotel Thompson.  That father of mine can barely walk around wearing tennis shoes – snorts!

So the next time you put on those fabulous pair of pumps, think of how the originated.  Then put them on and vogue it my friends!

      Tell me about it. I can’t even look at mom’s high heels anymore. I’m thinking of pushing them towards Houdini and letting him take care of them. XOXO – Bacon

    A quick Wikipedia search shows, only half the truth, Bacon:
    Mongolian horsemen were among the first to use heels as means to keep their feet from sliding out of their stirrups. It is also well known that Egyptian butchers wore high heels so they would not step directly in offal. Pharaohs and nobles in Ancient Egypt would wear high heels to show power and for ceremonial purposes. So, I suppose the egyptian butchers were not necessarily the first to wear them …

        Neither did I – and I can understand that you concentrated on the butcher – it’s bloodier for Halloween.

      My dad thought the same thing brother. He said that his checkbook will appreciate it while he cans. I’m sure it won’t last for long. XOXO – Bacon

      Snorts! Mom says definitely not. They probably were not something that women would want to be caught dead in these days. XOXO – Bacon
