Have you ever been a passenger in a car gazing out the window and off to the side of the road you see a shoe? Where in the hell did that shoe come from? I mean, it’s not like you see one, maybe two shoes on the side of the road in a lifetime, you see them all the time. And I say ‘you’ because I know that you know exactly what I’m talking about. Now how weird is that?
I can understand a flip flop here or there, but I see gym shoes-high tops no less, dress shoes, slippers, all kinds of shoes on the side of the road. And it’s just one! WTF?
Was a couple fighting in the car and Sally took off her shoe and decided to start wailing on her boyfriend? Did he then get the shoe from her and whip it out the window?
I know that when people get hit by cars they get knocked out of their shoes, but this is way too many and there’s only one!
Was someone fleeing from the FBI and needed to de-clothe? (It’s a word now.) If so, why aren’t their clothes strewn about trailing behind the lonely sole? Where is the other damn shoe? Are that many people throwing out just one shoe? They can’t possibly be losing them. Wouldn’t you notice if you were walking down the street and your shoe fell off? A high top can’t just fall off.
Please tell me I’m not the only one who wonders about this. You must have conversations about the damn shoe with your people when you pass a single sole on the side of the road.
Someone please tell me what this is all about so I can sleep at night. Share with me your wisdom and insight, and if you don’t know the answer, just make shit up. Even if you do know, just make shit up anyway.
Okay now, I’d like to give a quick shout out to my pals who have been so encouraging and supportive. Okay, maybe it won’t be short…but I strongly suggest you go visit these blogs if you haven’t already.
Terry over at A Writer of Wrongs. I have had the privilege of reading his first novel that will be published soon, I just know it will. I get to say that I have an original copy of the manuscript before it was published even though he’s revised it already. He is a great writer. He has the ability to capture you and keep you wanting more. AND he has really pushed and encouraged me to continue with my own dreams. He has a way of telling you the truth without being harsh or offending. Something I could only dream of being able to do. He pushes on even when he doesn’t want to and I find that quite inspiring. Thanks for listening to my sniveling and whining.
Meleah at Momma Mia, Mea Culpa has a knack for telling you all about her little adventures out in the world. She makes me laugh every time and she has such a wonderful family and shares about her journey with them. She is an inspiration to Do Things Differently in order to change your life for the better. I can’t wait to meet you Mel.
Then there’s Marty. He’s doing a 365 day bar crawl. He finds some interesting characters and great bars. It’s summer time and he’s in New York. So if you want to know of the cool places you can visit while you’re there get over to his blog and take a look. Let’s not have him destroy his liver in vain. Oh. And he’s got some pretty entertaining and funny books out there.
Dana at Confessions of a Random Chick happens to tickle my fancy. She’s pretty funny and I can relate to all of her randomness. She has published a book recently called Stupid Poetry. YAY Dana! (Yes, I bought it).
Last but not least DL at Cruising Altitude. He’s having a contest called THIS IS SPARTA-A 300 Celebration. The prizes are incredible and he never requires alot from his followers. The contest is over at the end of May so get over there, follow and comment. His new goal is to have a follower from every state in the U.S. and at least one from every country. So go help out a fellow blogger who has much to offer and is also very talented.
Love you guys.
