"No, you just do that now. That's just a new thing you do, until you and your shitty ankle both die."
As expected, my internet research proved correct: ice, advil, stretching, shoe inserts. I can no longer wear my birkenstocks because they're too flat. sob. AND he told me to get expensive running shoes instead of my current expensive walking shoes. So, I head on over to Sports Authority and I try them all on, and I spend about 10 minutes talking with the cool dude who was helping me about the purpose of my purchase: it doesn't matter what they look like, it's the comfort and support that's important. Because LOOK what I ended up with.
I could have spent $25 more on the pair that weren't as supportive or flexible, because they weren't as hideously ugly, but that's totally unnecessary. It's not about what they look like, right? RIGHT?
WHY DO WOMEN'S SHOES HAVE TO BE PINK??? Are men's shoes baby blue? Seriously, that's just WRONG.
