Snow White Shoe

She'd taken a big bite out of my ego.

 

"You're a small, dopey, rotten man!" she shouted. "Why are all men so rotten?"

 

She was the one to talk. As I dodged the contents of the fruit bowl, I reflected on what she'd said. Bruised ego aside, I didn't think I deserved it. Not all of it, anyway.

 

"You're not exactly Snow White. Who died and left you queen?"

 

"That's not fair."

 

But it was. Of all the things I'd ever wanted to say to her, it was the fairest of them all.

Every shoe tells a story — I started this piece  for "Fables Retold", along with the Cinderella Skate and Red Riding Hood Shoe, but it became another UFO (Un-Finished Object) until several years later, when I brought it out and finished it for another show that needed new work.
