This is going to be a rare non-educational post from me, but it is teacher-related IF you’ve ever tried and FAILED at wearing these.
I seriously need these in order to wear shoes like this.
I’ve HEARD legends about people who have successfully worn these. I’ve received tips about the RIGHT ones to buy (100% cotton?! good luck finding that!). Still, I have never successfully worn a pair of these. I UNsuccessfully wear a pair every day though, and by first hour, I’ve got the wad in my shoe going. You know what I’m talking about! I’m constantly fixing my heel part and pulling it back up. Or, I just leave the wad until I can fix it. But at least the wad is absorbing sweat, right?
OK.. so my Tried it Tuesday for today is actually going to be “HOW I SOLVED THE WAD IN MY SHOE!” Are you dying to know? Here it is!
Problem solved! It even says so RIGHT THERE on the tape! OK.. so what is that? It’s flash tape. I keep it in my desk just in case I ever have a “flash” emergency. My former principal was always on cleavage patrol and it made me so nervous that I kept this tape in my desk. I’ve only had to use it a handful of times in the 6 years I’ve had it, but I’ve shared it with others who are having their own flash emergency. The great thing about this tape is that it sticks to skin AND clothing, so, for example, if you’ve got a shirt that tends to poof out when you bend over, just tape it to your chest. You get the idea, right? I honestly don’t wear revealing clothes to school – or even BORDERLINE revealing clothes – but a teacher can’t ever be too safe.. especially a middle school teacher.
So, as I arrived at school yesterday morning and sat down at my desk TO FIX THE WAD IN MY SHOE, I opened my drawer to look for something and there was the flash tape and the rest is history! I flash-taped my shoe liner to my heel and it held ALL DAY. I did it AGAIN today, and once again, it held all day!
You can buy the flash tape here and I promise you’ll get your $5 worth! Just tape it to the back of your heel and then remove the double-sided sticky part and press the back of your shoe liner to the tape.
BOOM Shakalaka! Just like the tape says.. PROBLEM SOLVED!
