Today’s song title is from Closing Time.
Because I am super-ambitious, I’ve joined another November challenge: NaBloShoeMo.
I wear these shoes nearly every day (when I bother to wear shoes at all). Boring! Luckily, the rules are pretty relaxed. Nevertheless, I felt obligated to spice my contributions up a bit, so when Gwen told me that overstock.com had my sneakers on sale for fourteen dollars a pair, I used my emergency credit card as god intended it to be used and bought a pair in brown and a pair in green. They’re shipping ground (only $1.00!) so I don’t know when they’ll get here, but to say that I am super-psyched wouldn’t entirely convey my joy. (I am sad to say that the price has nearly doubled since I made the purchase — thank god I didn’t decide to hold off — but is still a significant savings. And let me tell you, these are the best sneakers on earth. My first pair lasted me almost ten years and is still in good enough shape to be garden shoes; my current pair is going on three years and has only needed the laces replaced.)
