Imaginary Shoe Inserts
Rusty: Jan's never going to win the Brightest Human of the Continent Award.
Micah: Not even the Brightest Human of the County Award.
Rusty: Do you think we could at least put her name in for the Human Running on Half a Cylinder Award?
Micah: Not a chance!
Rusty: *sigh* I had such high hopes for this year. If we aren't going to win anything, I guess we might as well tell a joke.
Micah: Okay. Tuesday morning Jan leaped out of bed - No, let me begin again. Tuesday morning Jan crawled out of bed and wandered around from chore to chore as fast as her feet and fuzzy brain could travel.
Rusty: Before she even leashed the dogs for a walk, her feet and legs hurt. Not unusual. But even though she wasn't wearing inserts, one foot felt like it was on a heel insert and the other felt as if the insert had fallen out.
Micah: "Oh, great, now these shoes are falling apart, too," she complained. "I need to find something to change into before I leave for lunch."
Rusty: She survived the walk but was so busy she forgot to change shoes.
Micah: She ate lunch at the crowded church soup kitchen. (Yummy sausage dogs and banana pudding - she didn't even bring us a crumb.) Then she went shopping at Wal-mart with two ladies.
Rusty: When Jan got home, she rushed the dogs outside to the pee pen, then raced around the kitchen putting away a few groceries. All she wanted to do was to collapse into a chair and take off those uncomfortable shoes that were causing so much pain!
Micah: She stopped beside the kitchen table, took a breath, and for the first time that day, she looked down at her feet.
Rusty: She can't believe no one noticed she was wearing two different shoes.
Micah: I guess we should be thankful they were at least the same color!
Rusty: Yes, they were - muddy.
