I Never Learn

I Never Learn

These are my aunt's former maternity trousers, given to me when I ran out of something to wear the last time I visited her. I don't know how to feel about the fact that they fit so well. I try to reason that I am taller and it all makes sense. Proportion shift and all but even I'm not convinced sometimes.

But what I really wanted to talk about today is the fact that sometimes I feel that I Never Learn (Lykke Li knows). The first time I wore heels until my feet hurt I think I was 15. I had missed the bus closest to my house and ended up having to walk an extra 7 minutes. Let me tell you that those seven minutes were full of nothing but me pleading with God. If he took my feet right at that instant I would never wear heels for more than ten consecutive hours in my life. 

God didn't deliver, but for more obvious reasons such as the fact that I now take to wearing heels for say 14 hours without feeling any pain. Honestly when a pair is as seductively but sensibly built as these Talulah's who can resist?
