of shoes and men

One of my joys of coming home was seeing Joyce again. (Joyce is our "house help" and a dear friend.) Yesterday, we had an amusing conversation. Joyce was looking at a pair of shoes I got when I was in the States...

Joyce: "These shoes are so nice."

Me: "Thanks. I like them, too. Niel doesn't really like them, though. He says they look like old lady shoes."

Joyce: "What do men know about shoes anyway?!"
