This is the first of many humorous and human interest bits about the attire and the garments that people wear/display these days in the twenty first century. I call this piece KICKS & LIDS. This first story is hilarious. Check it out!
So, for my Birthday/Christmas gift my Sister at Church gives me a $50 gift card to D & K Mens Clothing & Haberdashery. I went looking for a black, french cuffs shirt. they have never had shoes in my size (size 8), so I usually just walk past and review them on my way out. But something caught my eye! A blue suede, lace up, round toe shoe! Nice, I said. "Watch it not be in my size!" So I stopped, picked it up, and to my SURPRIZE, SURPRISE! Yes Gomer, it was an 8! Regularly $99, today half price. I forgot all about the shirt! I began to look for the mate. LOL! It should have been in the box under the shoe, right! NO MATE! "What, the one legged man came through and bought the RIGHT SHOE,left the LEFT SHOE?!" Now the store owner and all his employees are looking for this Right Blue Suede shoe. After 20 exhausting minutes, still no SHOE! I left my business card with my phone/email information. "When you locate the mate, please give me a call."
A week to ten days goes by and still no CALL! So I decided to stop in again. The box, one left shoe and my business card were still behind the counter. The search continued. Another exhausting 20 minutes goes by, still NO MATE was to be found. I had resided into buying a shirt! Smiling, laughing and having one legged humorous thoughts. LOL!!! Then suddenly, from the back of the store, Michael, the SHOE ANGEL yells, "I found it! It was hidden on a shelf in the back listed as a discard item because it has NO MATE!" LOL!!! The whole store erupted into laughter!
But that's not how the story ends! The lost/found shoe had no shoe string I exclaimed! Michael, the shoe angel calmly says, "You got the shoes, we can find you some new shoe laces!" I got another 30% OFF on the shoes, leaving me enough on the gift card to purchase a signature hat/lid designed by Carlos Santana!
Now I've got to Kick it for now partners, so keep a Lid on it til later!
