    metaphor

    Hi !

    I would appreciate someone to give me an interpretation of this metaphor .

    "you donít have to be like the glitzy stiletto heels you pull out once or twice for special occasions.I like shoes that fit well and feel good, shoes you donít mind wearing everyday. You are that kind of shoe, Lewis, and I like you the way you are.Ē

    thanks

    Setting aside the possibility that the girl might be a cobbler, she likes Lewis because he is a regular guy! She does not want Lewis to be a man who tries to impress everyone by being someone he is not. Glitzy stiletto heels may be attractive but what happens when the shoes are taken off and placed in the closet for long periods of time? The girl would rather be with Lewis every day rather than just on special occasions.

    Cheers,
