I’m sure that we all have something that we hold onto for much longer than we should. I have a number of those things, consider this a character flaw if you wish, but for me it’s all about comfort.
At some point during my high school career, I purchased a pair of Adidas slip-on soccer style shoes. I think this was my sophomore year, but I can’t be sure as that was almost 2 decades ago. Bygones.
I had kept those shoes through thick and thin and they had become a staple of my casual summer wardrobe. Without implicating my wife too much, Sweet Sweet had grown to hate these shoes and I could certainly understand why. They were dirty and quite frankly a little gross, but they were damn comfortable, they had stood up to the test of time and I’m of the school of thought of why should you get rid of something if nothing is wrong with it?
Well, at some point during the summer I promised Sweet Sweet that I would throw them away and this post is in remembrance of those shoes. Cue the sad piano music.
