The heel/sole of your shoe breaks in front of a large audience?What will you do?

It happened to me! Allow me to give you the gist.........

I was nominated for an award and was called to recieve the award. On the faithful day, I was so happy and trust now, I had to look good for the occassion.

To cut the long story short, when I was called up to recieve the award, I got up and started walking down the aisle (unfortunately for me, I sat at the back-to draw attention to myself) and all eyes were on me as I walked down. When I was almost in front of the stage, the heel (very high one for that matter) of one of the pair of shoes I was wearing broke!  Ha! I almost died. At first I was not sure of what had happenned but then, it dawned on me.

I will not tell u what I did or what happenned there after until I get your take on what you would do if tou were in my shoes.

What would you do if u were in my shoes?

I will stop at that spot, signal to the people on the podium to give the award for some minutes, see if I can fix the shoe. If I can not, I'll remove the shoes and walk bare footed to collect the award.

I have won the award, my name has been announced and so the breaking shoe cannot remove the award from me.

i'l faint first, wake up and-------then-----faint again (these would happen in seconds, though)

BUT; there's no turning back so, i'll take both shoes off and glide gracefully to the stage to collect my award.

it has happened to me before shaa. but it was the sole of my damn shoe that went haywire. and just like u. i acted a drama and won best male actor. it was in high school and big boys usually stay at the back but that faithful day, i was in front(thank goodness) when i heard my name, as i was walking up to collect my award with eerone looking at me, i took few steps forward and was in the middle of everything, all eyes where on me cuzz i was also a prefect. let me reach the stage, i took one step forward and my sole left me. i actually walked for 2 seconds before i noticed it. i stopped, looked down saw what happened, looked behind me and saw the silly sole lying there. some people were giggling but i know send person. i removed the other one, and picked both of them up, went to the side and dropped it then i went to the stage wearing only socks and collected my award.

Forgive me but why shamefacedly at all? She didn't ask for the shoe to misbehave and well... she didn't make the shoe and it's not a reflection on how inexpensive the shoe was or any such thing. Just last Wednesday; I was walking home from work (I quite enjoy that) on a very busy road, smack in the middle of the city centre and my heel snapped. Imagine... all suited up and all. It was just my very 2nd time of wearing the shoes and they were bought from no less than the acclaimed city of fashion itself, Milan. I felt like going back there to rant and rave but that will only be crazy not to mention penny-wise pound-foolish. What did I do? I naturally had to forget about walking home for the next 30 minutes even though the weather was gorgeous. I laughed and believe me, every other person who noticed what had happened couldn't stop laughing either. Some even came over to see if they could help. Luckily, a colleague was just driving past and volunteered to give me a lift home.

What would she have done but to pick the heel and walk out of the crowd shamefacedly.

Or at best, forget about the heel and still walk out of the crowd less shamefacedly.

What else would one do? You cannot disappear. If you could that was the best thing to do. I cannot disappear myself cos I am not a spirit; so, I would just pick the heel and walk away. Mature people in our country would understand. (45 yrs we are)
