Shoes and their place in contemporary mores

May 12, 2011


An old friend, much maligned in his time, came over to my place to give me a pair of shoes that he couldn’t wear. This is the second year running for this display of charity. They hurt his feet he says. They are perfect for mine. Like limousines. It seems my friend’s feet keep growing. Normally it is the ears. That keep growing when you get older. But for my friend, lets call him Victor (that’s his real name anyway), this has become a terrible price to pay for longevity. He has to have experts pare his nails. Its covered by his medical program. The nails punch through his shoes and scratch the linoleum. Like chalk. On a blackboard. Victor’s wife, let’s call her Linda (for obvious reasons), has complained about the scratches across the kitchen floor. Victor blames their cat. Linda reminds Victor that the cat has been dead for a year. “Oh,” Victor shrugs and shuffles off to the basement. To plug in his sander.
