Shoe Ho's Anonymous


PING Apologist #9
 Share

Recommended Posts

SETTING:

​​A random schoolroom after hours in Anytown USA

​SCENE:

​A small group has gathered to bare their souls in a self-initiated intervention program

​

ACT-1 SCENE-1:

​"The cleansing of PING Apologist #9'

 

​PA#9: stands up and states to the group: â€‹"Hello, my name is PING Apologist #9 and....well... (sobbing)...I'm a Shoe HO...(more sobbing)

 

GROUP:​ "Hi PING Apologist #9!"

 

​GROUP LEADER: â€‹"It's OK, just let it out"

 

​PA#9:​ "Well, it all started back in September of last year. See, I began playing golf more often and...and I just couldn't help myself! Oh God, I'm so embarrassed!" (more sobbing and blowing nose into tissue)

 

​GROUP: â€‹"Go on brother, we're with you"

 

PA#9:​ "I found these in the interwebs and just figured, you know, one pair couldn't hurt...right?

IMG_20180413_184036673.jpg

 

​PA#9:​ "Then...then I didn't wanna be a dweeb and wear white after Labor Day so I told myself to get these..."

IMG_20180413_184403759_LL.jpg

 

GROUP LEADER:​ "It's OK son, two pairs is OK. You're not sick."

 

PA#9:​ "No you don't understand! Two just wasn't enough! I had to diversify and expand my fashion styles away from plain old white or black! I...I needed MORE!"

IMG_20180413_185730029_LL.jpg

 

RANDOM MURMERS EMINATE FROM THE GROUP

 

​​PA#9: â€‹"And MORE!"

IMG_20180413_190844673_LL.jpg

 

GROUP: â€‹"AUGGGHHH!"

 

GROUP LEADER:​ "HOLD IT! HOLD IT!!!! 4-pairs really​ aren't an issue here! You did stop there right?...Well?...Didn't you?"

 

PA#9:​ "NO MAN! I found these!"

IMG_20180413_191045139.jpg

 

PA#9: ​"I just figured that since I was nearing 50...well why the Hell not?!!! Right? I mean..."

 

​THE GROUP SUDDENLY TACKLES PA#9 AND HOLDS HIM AT BAY WITH LOTS OF KICKING, SCREAMING AND AN OCCASIONAL BITE OR TWO WHILE THE LEADER CALLS 911.

 

PA#9 IS LATER HAULED AWAY WEARING A TIGHT "SWEATER" BY NICE FELLOWS DRIVING A RUBBER TRUCK...

 

END SCENE

 

​​Yes...yes I am one sick puppy when it comes to getting and wearing nice solid MADE-IN-USA footwear...I just can't stand most of the overseas-made crap that all seem to emanate from the same factories, feels cheep and wears out easily and I'm willing to fork out the extra cash for that piece-of-mind too. Found all of these on-line and mostly all either new & unworn or nearly new. I'm also watching a couple of more pairs as we type, so the illness persists...

 

​Is there anyone out there with a similar affliction? I'd love to hear from y'all!

 

Cheers and thanks for reading!

I'd suffer from that affliction if I could afford it. I spend as much time looking at shoes as anything else in the golf shops. Fortunately, I have a buddy who is a full price shoe ho, and I get his cast-offs. He gave me four pairs about a month ago, including a pair of adidas that I don't think he ever wore. [emoji106]

You definitely have a problem. By my count you have 3 holes in your collection. [emoji6]

I only got 5 pairs. All FJ. 3 BOA, (hyperflex, reelfit, contour), 1 sport, 1 contour. Got rid of the DNA cause I prefer a heel instead of flat shoe.
