These boots were made for, erm, walking?

According to this story on the BBC, I should maybe think about revising the upper height limit I've imposed on the heels of my elusive pair of perfect boots.

Talking of strange medicine, a gust of wind almost made me sick yesterday. I was walking around a corner, yapping away on my phone, and a huge gust blew straight into my open mouth and triggered my gag reflex. Luckily I hadn't eaten or drunk anything for a few hours, but it was almost nasty. Is this a first?


  1. Sorry to laugh at your discomfort, but that's hilarious!

  2. I know ;)

    Imagine the coroner's report - "choked on own vomit due to inability to breathe properly in windy conditions". How embarrassing.

  3. Good thing you weren't wearing stilettos! (perhaps that study should have also taken into consideration twisted ankles)

  4. Don't forget that if you twist your ankle, you get to spend more time in bed...

  5. I've had this happen but only when it's severely windy out...I learned to tuck my mouth into my scarf for breathing at those times.

  6. Oh, I'm so glad it's not just me! The entrance at the corner of my building is a real wind tunnel, and it was a particularly windy day. I don't usually wear a scarf but I can learn to keep my mouth well and truly shut while I turn that corner.
