I feel totally high right now. You know why?
IT’S SUMMER, PEOPLE!
We have had two, count ’em TWO, glorious days of sunshine, right in a row. It is too exciting to bear. I am going to make this one quick since I have to clear my schedule for traipsing around in the sunlight and thawing the hell out.
Remember how I told you that my friends, Hopscotch and Rambo, recently got hitched? And how my hiney was in motion on the reception dance floor in celebratory glee? I have a post script to that story.
So picture me, busting a move in the middle of a crowd of wedding guests of all ages. Are you picturing it? I don’t feel like you are really picturing it. PICTURE IT.
In the midst of this crowd of dancers, there were these two teeny little girls. They were wee ones after my own heart, as they were dancing it up just as hard as their little legs could go. But then, you know what happened?
They saw my shoes. My lovely, delicious sunshiney shoes.
AND THEY WERE CAPTIVATED.
They both, simultaneously, got down on their little round bellies, crawled toward my dancing feet, and started to worship the shoes.
I had to stop dancing and stand there for a minute. They both just melted there on the floor in front of me. They reached out with both hands, and petted my shoes. For a good long minute. Pet pet. Pretty pretty. Pet pet. Shoooooooz.
Everyone laughed. My friends snapped photos of this. And the kiddies just stared and petted. Not to be interrupted. Eventually, I had to stop the madness and I just sort of gently withdrew from the little hands.
I have been told I have nice shoes before. But this? This is getting ridiculous.
