The shoe analogy could be infinitely extrapolated. If the feet aren't right, we just plain stumble. No humungous epiphany here.
Not surprisingly we begin our fairy tales with Cinderella and her dainty glass slippers. We win when we fit the delicate shoe.
Fit the shoe? Really?
I'll let the shoe fit. We're spoilt for choice with the advent of globalisation.
Was I talking footwear? Maybe. Maybe not.
Moral of the story : Wear socks. Shoes can't be trusted !!!
