glass slipper

Why did she choose glass?

Now this just makes no sense to me. Absolutely no sense. I mean, I’m a dad so I don’t have much experience with wearing female footwear, but even I know that shoes made out of glass are an absolutely terrible proposition. And not just shoes; heels! Which according to my wife are horrible when they aren’t made out of a completely unmalleable material.  Cinderella-disneyscreencapsAnd Ms. Cinderella doesn’t just have to walk in these, she has to dance for hours followed by a little light running. She spends at least 5-6 hours in these things. Was this the Fairy Godmother’s first day on the job? There are few materials that could have been chosen more uncomfortable to wear than glass. I guess it does make the whole idea a little more plausible that Prince Charming would be able to find Cinderella with the heel left behind. He would just have to look for a girl who’s feet were bloody & bruised and who most likely won’t be able to stand up for the next 1 to 2 weeks.
