My silver shoes. Even though they look nothing like Dorothy’s shoes in “The Wizard of Oz,” they somehow remind me of them anyways. I did read somewhere that in the book, the slippers were silver, but they wanted to show off the color technology in the movie, so they made them ruby slippers. I recently re-watched the movie and just feel baffled. Why does she want to go back to Kansas so bad? A land of no color, no exciting adventures and interesting creatures. A place with tornadoes and farm work. She misses Auntie Em, I know. But I just don’t get it. If I were her, I would want to stay in Oz forever.
