Like gunfire

23 Apr


I absolutely love

the staccato sound

of confident high heels


like gunfire

across an expensive


of polished

marble floor



This post is a year old, but I will always love the sound

    Once a couple of decades ago, lol, I had an older boss who was a throwback to the forties or fifties. He always had a tailored suit on, and he came very close to insisting that I wear high heels to work. Why? Well, I finally asked him one day when he was hinting around (believe me, this wasn’t the sort of “hint” that would be harrassment), and he told me he was in love with the “staccato beat of your glorious high heels across the lobby floor”. My office and his were directly off the lobby of our building. And I, too, even as a woman, will turn my head when I hear that sound.

      Interesting. I have no idea why it resonates so strongly with me. Yet it does. Smiles.

        My theory has always been that the beat represents power and self-assuredness and sexuality, all wrapped up into one. But that’s my theory, and I’m usually only right about half the time. 🙂
