It would not be an exaggeration to say that the Red Dirt Girl and I share some laughs over shoes. Her blog, the one I first read, posted pictures of the shoes and boots she liked, along with the poetry she loves. She had, just before my arrival, taken possession of a pair of extremely neat red lace-ups, which I admire greatly.
It would not be an inexactitude to suggest I was a just a tiny wee bit jealous of her for having such cool footwear.........
I had always wanted a pair of shoes with toes in them, so I threw common-sense to the wind, and went ahead and bought some Vibram Five Fingers. They're silly, but comfortable, and allow me to hang upside-down like a fruit-bat, using my prehensile toes.
Okay. I lied. I can't hang upside down using my toes, but I can leave strange footprints in the mud.
Not to be outdone, the Red Dirt Girl's youngest son (12) just came home from school with this cool footwear made out of duct-tape over socks, by his schoolfriend. Kelyn.
