Bloody Mary Shoe

"Can I take you to brunch on Sunday?"

 

I'd never heard of the place she suggested, but since I'd go just about anywhere with her, I accepted. "I'll meet you there right after church," she said.

 

Church? Before I had time to react to that, a second shoe hit the floor. "If you get there first, go ahead and order me a salad in a glass."

 

"Absolutly!" I said, even though what I was thinking was more like "Bloody hell!"

 

We said goodbye, and I hung up the phone, mystified. Church made some kind of sense on Sunday morning, but salad? I prayed to the Virgin Mary there'd be something on the menu I could count on to ease the hangover I was already planning to have.

Gicleé print, signed & matted — $75

Every shoe tells a story — I've always thought of a Bloody Mary as a salad in a glass. It's so good for you!

 

I created a trio of shoes for the Tomato Festival at Art + Invention in Nashville — this one, the Pomodoro Shoe and the Salsa Shoe.
