After scouring the area for a pair of Wonder Woman boots for Caroline, I finally found some at a consignment store.
Since they are black I will have to paint them but I’m happy since the fit is good.
While I don’t mind shopping at consignment stores, the shoes can give me the willies.
Dried stranger sweat tends to do that to me.
So each time we tried on another pair of boots I would say, “Caroline, leave your socks on.”
She promptly told me, “No, Wonder Woman doesn’t wear socks.”
Breathing deeply I would reiterate each time that she needed to keep her socks on.
We persevered though and finally found the perfect pair.
As we were driving home, Alex asked Caroline what else she needed for her costume.
She must have had our previous conversation on her mind because she said, “Wonder Woman doesn’t need socks.”
And yes, she occasionally refers to herself as Wonder Woman in the first person.
I said, “I think she does wear socks.”
“No she doesn’t.”
Alex asked her, “Does Wonder Woman fly?”
“Yes but she doesn’t need socks.”
I responded, “I think she wears the socks underneath her boots.”
Exasperated she let out a sigh and said, “No. She doesn’t wear socks. It’s not on the super hero show.”
I couldn’t let it rest, “Maybe you just can’t see them.”
“WONDER WOMAN DOESN’T WEAR SOCKS!”
Can you imagine with all the running around Wonder Woman does how sweaty her feet must get without socks?
Instead of her lasso and cuffs, she could use her stinky feet to fight for justice.
