I won’t get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.
–Elvis Costello/Angels Wanna Wear My Red Shoes
I have over 12 pairs of red shoes. I stopped counting at 12.
Does that seem like a lot? It seems to me that I should have some more.
No angels have ever asked to wear them. Do you think Elvis made it up?
Some of them are pretty cute. I can understand why an angel would want to wear them. Popes have been wearing red shoes for years. Why should they have all the fun? Maybe angels gave them the idea, but then again, some of the recent red shoe popes got pretty old. Maybe they should have let the angels wear them after all.
The current pope doesn’t appear to be wearing the traditional red guccis. We’ll see if he ages at an decreased rate compared to other popes.
I will definitely consider it if an angel asks.
I wouldn’t have to let them wear all of my red shoes, would I, ’cause no one is wearing my red Frye boots but me!
