“Eric, you better come home this instant!”

“But, honey! I just got a promotion, and the boys are celebrating.”

“Not tonight you aren’t. You may have been promoted, but you’re still my husband. Get back here now!”

“But honey…”

“If you don’t come home, I’m putting on the red shoes.”

Silence.

“Roxanne?”

“Yes, Eric honey?”

“You don’t have to put on the red shoes. Or the red dress tonight. I’ll be home shortly.”

Roxanne sat back, chuckled as she looked at the box with the magic butt-kicking shoes inside.

“Best five dollars I ever paid.”
