Living In Moot Mode


Is it just me, or does anyone else wonder about the lone shoe or boot on the side of the road?

How does that happen? Do drivers and/or passengers  take one off and dangle it out the car window until it slips from their grasp? If so, why?

Is it fun?

Are these people snubbing their noses at the bourgeois?

Or maybe, pedestrians are the culprits!

Picture it: a person is walking along and suddenly decides the left shoe is no damn good and ditches it on the spot. Get thee behind me, bad shoe!

Notice how you never see a pair of errant shoes, it’s always just one.

Why keep the right one? This pair of shoes has spent a lot of time in one another’s company. Surely, even in the shoe and boot microcosm, bad habits and questionable ideologies  rub off.

Something huge is afoot. I can feel it.
