Last Saturday I was teaching at a conference in Owatonna, Minnesota. Towards the end of the last class, something was going on with my shoe. I couldn’t tell if a sticky something was on my shoe, or if the shoe was falling apart.
I didn’t want to stop class and check it out so I just kept teaching. After the class finished, I checked my shoe…it was falling apart. If fact, it had cracked in two.
Duct tape to the rescue!! Thankfully I happen to have some duct tape in my class supply box. Kelli taped the shoe up for me and then we were on with the rest of out day. I wore them for another five hours before we made it home. Kelli, of course, made fun of me the entire time. It was a little embarrassing walking around in duct taped shoes but eventually, I just took it in stride.
I had thought about replacing the shoes at the beginning of this summer but decided they weren’t completely worn out so why…Well they are in the garbage now, so new sandals for next summer!!
I loved those shoes….may they rest in peace.
