This was not in the job description

I am possibly the first start-up founder who literally walked their heels off for a company.  Here’s what happened as I criss-crossed Cambridge for Daily Grommet today!

As my high platform shoes spontaneously reorganized themselves into wobbly Earth Shoes, I got shorter and shorter with each step.   Just to cap a long day of back-to-back meetings off, I had to end the night in these crazy half shoes by attending a crowded office open house.  It was held at the pristine and spacious new digs of a local venture capital firm.  No amount of awkward mincing could prevent the showering of black rubber crud that traced my every step on the brand new white carpeting.

Think PigPen–with a beer and a limp–meets high finance.
