I had the opportunity to stand outside in some sticky snow today for a while as I was waiting for my ride to come back and get me. And when I looked down at the snow as I stepped off of it, I was pleasantly surprised at what I saw!
No, it wasn't that my feet are smaller than I thought. I'm a good ol' size 7.... just perfect, I think.
No, it wasn't that I had narrowly avoided stepping in a pile of dog poo.
No, it wasn't even that kerschnoooooooge sound the sticky snow makes that you know I love so much.
I pulled my foot back from the snow and was completely in love with my footprint! Yes! My footprint! I have never paid attention to the sole on this particular pair of running shoes before and I loved the design it made. I loved it so much I took a picture of it with my phone (but I don't have the cord to connect to the computer, so I can't publish it). The sole of my runners has a series of horizontal lines evenly spaced for the length of the shoe and then it incorporates a smattering of circular bubbles, if you will, periodically spread throughout! And when you make two shoe prints side by side, well you can imagine the harmonic bliss I was able to create! I was so excited that the people walking by me starred with awkward looks on their faces as if I was an escapee from a mental institution.
If there was something that could make my day today, it was my snowy footprints. Look, peeps... the whole point here is that sometimes it's just nice to find amusement in the smallest of things that life has to offer you!
