The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS July 6/19

Chew/Choo by John W. Howell © 2019

“Why are you  looking through that shoe catalog?”

“Are you kidding. This thing is loaded with designer shoes at a discount.”

“Don’t you have enough shoes right now?”

“Asks the man with three leaf blowers.”

“Hey, wait a minute. Each has its use.”

“Well, each pair of shoes has its use.”

“Okay, then. Anything catch your eye.”

“I like this pair of Jimmy Choo heels.”

“Whoa. You could get a car for that amount.”

“Yeah, crappy car or the best shoes?”

“You make a good point.”

“They have shoes for men in this catalog. Interested?”

“Let me chew on it for a while. Not sure I could pay that much for something I wouldn’t wear every day.”

“So you think every day ought to be cheap?”

“Yeah. You get value out of use.”

“Like those Old Navy sneakers?”

“Precisely.”

“The ones with the twine for laces.”

“Works.”

“And duct tape for backs?”

“As I said. Works.”

“Okay, then. Anything above ten bucks is overpayment as far as you are concerned.”

“Make that two for ten.”

“Give me the strength.”

“You’re strong.”

“Times like these not strong enough.”

“Want to wrestle?

“Right.”

  5. You’ve spanned both sides of my shoe-view, John. I’ll pay for comfort and support (these days, heavy on the support) but not a fancy name. Nice job with the prompt.

    Never really been a shoe person but I do like to be comfortable and colorful if possible. Only boots should hit triple digits and not by much:)
