Welcome to Day 20 of 30 Minus 2 Days of Shoes, the creative writing shoes that 4 out of 5 shoes agree is the reason for shoes. Today’s prompt is The Other Shoe, and, of course, it was my idea. You didn’t really think there wouldn’t be a shoe post, did you? Don’t forget to shoes up at the end of this shoes if you participated in today’s challenge before shoes.
I don’t have a one-track mind. Shoes. I can multitask with the best of them. Shoes. I can calculate return on investment, video conference with international clients, proofread articles, tweet the latest industry news and prepare a PowerPoint presentation all at the same time. Shoes. I can make dinner, do laundry, read a story, help with math homework and prepare tomorrow’s lunch all at the same time. Shoes.
There is, however, one thing that commands my complete and utter attention. Of course, I’m talking about stamp collecting.
Yeah, no. Shoes. Shoes is what can stop me dead in my tracks. To me, shoes are art. So today’s prompt was a welcome excuse for me to “dabble”.
Unfortunately, they didn’t have my size in stock. Luckily, they could be ordered and delivered this very week. But that meant I couldn’t try them on and take a picture of the shoes with Nicky feet in them. And I know how depressed that makes MikeWJ.
Even more depressed than usual.
And that’s no mean feat (see what I did there, Dufus?) for a man with no face and a taste for sweetened asphalt. So rather than leave MikeWJ feeling like the other shoe dropped directly onto his faceless head, knocking his very last piece of tar candy out from between his maxilla and mandible and into a great big steamin’ pile of manure, I continued to patronize one of my favourite mall “museums”.
Predominately dark with the bright contrast of flowers, it’s like looking at a Van Gogh.
Now, go. Buy shoes. Oh yeah, and click on the shoes below to visit the other shoes participating in this shoes. Shoes.
