I'll take "I Should Have Known That" for $200, Alex.


"Mrs Smith, you know that wedding I went to in Miss Concert? (Wisconsin) I got new Tick Tocks for it! "

Me: "Tick Tocks? What are tick tocks?"

Susie: "You know TICK TOCKS. When you put them on and walk they go TICK TOCK TICK TOCK on the floor!" Big Smile.





Silly me.

As a child I was very embarrassed one whole school year because my new shoes squeaked and the kids all made fun of me. I spent all of one Saturday morning "getting the squeak out of them".

Well, that's one description I've never heard of before. Cool!

Oh, to be young enough to appreciate "tick tocks!"

Working in the library, I'm constantly trying to silence mine.

How embarrassing! We've all been there, though :).

We put Tick Tocks on our smallest trick-or-treater this year so we could find her by the sound. Worked like a charm.

Wish I could get me some new tick tocks. But we're staring down the barrel of unemployment, so the only new tick tocks I'm going to be able to afford will have to look good with a Denny's uniform.

Ya, Hubby does not appreciate it when I wear my boots on our tile and hardwood floors cuz they go 'tick tock' and he can't hear the TV. *sigh* Oh Lordy, it's always sumpin'.

See, clearly I don't speak kindergartenese because I was still confused.

It's awesome that you're bilingual.

What a perfect description! The Pixie had some dress up Tick Tock's on this year, I can't believe she made it around the block in those things!

SkylersDad said...

We Ninja's never, ever, wear any shoes that make a sound.

I loved "tick tocks" when I was a kid - wish I had known that name for them! Then I'd have known how to ask Santa for them for Christmas!

CatLadyLarew said...

I can't wear tick tocks... I keep falling over.

LiteralDan said...

And just like that, TickTock.com, the world's best online shoe store, was born. Catchy, isn't it?

I could go for some real Miss Concert Cheddar and fresh Italian bread right now. Mmmmmm...

I always love it when my shoes gives out a squeak when I walk in home on a rainy day, all drenched! It reminds me of my toddler days!

Sprite's Keeper said...

Hee hee, I actually knew that one!

My son graced me with two such comments yesterday. As we're eating dinner and he's saying the blessing, "....give us Lord our daily breath, Amen." Then as he was carrying money around I asked him where he was going to put it and he replied, "In my pinky bank."

adrienne said...

I love that!

God I just love your kid stories. I believe they may be keeping me young.

Kensi said...

Very funny...when my girls were little, they called them "clap" shoes. They loved to wear them with their "belly shirts."

(don't worry, they never left the house in "belly shirts.")

Pastor Sharon said...

Oh I always wanted my very own pair of tick tocks! I'm sure I could have danced to the tunes all day in them!

Tick Tocks are dress shoes??

Christine said...

I love that expression and have every intention of stealing it and making it my own at the first possible opportunity. :-)

plo said...

Carol said...

Miss Concert - I would love to hear this child say this... being as I am from WI.
I want new tick tocks too!

Kate Coveny Hood said...

Those were my favorite kind of shoes when I was little (kind of still are)...

Roshni Mitra Chintalapati said...

I bet she loved the sound more than the actual shoes themselves!!
