PAIR OF SHOES!!!
Yes, you should always have a backup pair of shoes with you!!! Today during 6th period, I got up to answer a phone call and my shoe broke! They are the type of shoe that fits between the toe, but not flippies. I didn't know what to do, so to make it not noticeable, I played it off like my foot slid in my shoe because they were sweaty! I answered the phone call and then sat back down in my chair at the front of the class, trying not to have to do much to walk in them.
As soon as the bell rang, I poked my head into the room next door and grabbed a safety pin so that I could at least walk out to my car at the end of the day with no problem. I pinned them together, but spent 7th period teaching barefoot. Sadly, when I got home my shoes found a new home in the trash can.
I guess I can't really be surprised that they broke seeing as I have had them since I was at least a freshman in high school. They were just so practical and kind of comfy (not like the shoes made nowadays)! I suppose I will have to go shoe shopping now =)
