Illustration Friday - Worn
"Home, Feet, Home"
I figured there would be a lot of entries this week that featured shoes and old people. So I figured I'd double-up and combine the too.
Remember the Little Old Lady that lived in a shoe? She had so much debt that she didn't know what to do. And once all of her kids moved out into their own shoes (with their own financial and arch support), our LOL (Little Old Lady) was left pretty much on her own. To tack on some more brutal sadness, her expenses eventually overtook her meager income, which led to the bank foreclosing on her Shoe. Her soul as worn as her sole, she threw up her hands and gave up.
Walking away barefooted, she vowed to start a new chapter in her life. She'd try to put her best foot forward, and to not step in any of life's droppings. She would tread where she wished and wouldn't be heel to anyone.
Possessions packed partially in shoe boxes, and partially in her oversized purse, LOL moved to Kalamazoo and became Mayor.
