Hey, I got some new shoes on and suddenly everything's right.

I don't know much about shoes, or how to buy them or when to buy them or why to buy them. So when I came across the Jildor website, I didn't really know what to make of it. Was it good? Was it bad? Was it a website that anyone would ever want to look at again? And why was I sitting at my computer questioning this myself when I instead could bring in three renowned shoe experts: Sweetie, Middle, and Oldest, to examine the site and let me know whether THEY liked it.

So I did that. "Hey, Sweetie, Middle, Oldest, come here. There's a website you might like," I told them. They responded enthusiastically:

Sweetie: "Is it another one of your dumb lists?"
"I'm doing homework."
Oldest: "Everything you say is boring except when you give me money. Which I could use some of. Does the website have money on it?"

Eventually, though, I got them over to look at it (by telling Oldest that the site did actually give out money.) When they got a look at it, here's what I got:

Middle: They have ugg boots and shoes for way cheap!

Did you see they have handbags for way below regular price? I could always use a new purse. Especially if I'm going to have money to put in it. I am going to get some money, right?

Sweetie: Where's the credit card?

So the verdict was in. This site, Jildor, makes shoe shopping easier -- a little too easy; my credit card is melting down-- and more fun by letting women compare shoes and get great prices on them and then order them online, so that shoes just get delivered to their door, like a little surprise every day. Or several times a day, in our house. Plus handbags. Plus they've got live chat to help out, and a phone number to call.

But mostly, I think, it's the shoes. The neverending display of shoes that look so great on the website, and are so easy to click on and order. They look a lot bigger in our house, where I think eventually they're going to crowd us out. But the girls are happy, I suppose. And isn't that really what counts?

Middle: No, what really counts is shoes.
Oldest: And I could still use a little money.
Sweetie: I'm just glad it wasn't one of your dumb lists.

Dude, if you keep writing stuff about discount designer shoes, my husband is going to ban me from your site. Keep it on the DL, man.
