Roly-poly Dr. Scholl-ys,
fifteen bucks at Wally*Mart.
Put them on – take not one strolly;
three of them! That’s a good start.

Walk while shopping,
walk ’round town,
walk for groc’ries,
then sit down.

“Curvy shoes for better butt!
Well, not mine, but then –
so what?

I’ve no need for better heiney –
cheapness is my love affair.
Rolly polly Dr. Scholl-ys,
twelve more times then

    I just saw a commercial where a law firm was recruiting people for a class-action lawsuit against Sketchers because they fell down or twisted their ankles wearing shoes like that.

    You’re supposed to break them in slowly; wear for an hour or two at a time. OR you could just move to the beach and walk in the sand every day. That would do the same thing.

    But wait… then you wouldn’t live in your house in Seward. Scratch that thought.

    Roly-poly Dr. Scholl-ys….HA! If that’s not their real name, it should be!

    I’ve thought about getting these shoes…because frankly I can use all the help I can get, but they look dangerous to me and I already have trouble with falling down so I’ve resisted.

    How big is the difference walking in these? (And your post reminds me of an elementary school joke that was always told: Say knee high backwards)
