Several days ago Seraphic Secret received this email from a loyal but unhappy reader:
It’s been ages since you posted a Friday Footwear blog. I get it. You like to write about Israel. Awesome. I’m a Christian Zionist who loves the Jewish people. You like to cut Obama down to size. Double awesome. I’m a Conservative. You like to write these amazing tales of Hollywood moral corruption. Again awesome because who doesn’t love fallen stars. But Robert, let me confess that I have a physical yearning for Friday Footwear.
Has Karen stopped buying cute shoes?
Have Offspring #2 & 3 gone on shoe strike?
You’re a Hollywood playwriter, right? Aren’t you supposed to give the audience what it wants?
Well I’m a gal who wants shoes, shoes, shoes!
Dear In Despair:
Thanks so much for your kind if desperate note. My bad. You are right, it’s been far too long since I posted a Friday Footwear edition. I have no excuse.
And yes, I am a screenwriter whose first duty is to my audience.
Lucky for you, Karen’s been hunting and gathering at Loehmann’s and Target the past few days and the love of my life has nabbed some choice new footwear.
Warning: Karen’s latest haul is anything but cute. In fact, the new shoes are positively… well, you’ll see.
Karen and I wish all our friends and relatives an inspirational and well-shod Shabbat.
