Waitress (Greasy Spoon) Shoe

"I've been waiting for you," she said.


By the looks of her that wasn’t strictly true, but I let it slide. Something like that would never be the last straw with me. Besides, I hadn't come here to sling the hash. If that was her story, I was willing to let her try and stick to it.

Every shoe tells a story — I'd like to personally thank everyone who ever wrote anything during the earlier to mid part of the last century. I love the use of metaphor to describe ordinary things — if you told a waitress you "hadn't come here to sling the hash", she knew just who you were and what you were talking about, and it tells the reader who she is, too.


The show theme was "Food + Drink". I created this Waitress Shoe, a Chopsticks (Chinese Food) Shoe and a Greek Cup (Coffee + a Bagel) Shoe.


HINT: Great gift for your favorite waitress!
