A funny young girl checked us out at Home Depot. Well, she wasn’t checkin’ us out, even though we are quite a spectacle, she just rung up our items and took our payment.
She wore a pair of white Vibram shoes, the ones with the separated toe slots. Nick asked her if they were comfortable and if she thought they’d be comfortable for him too. Without missing a beat, without blushing or stumbling on her words, she said, “Yeah, why not?”
Then we all got a good laugh visualizing Nick slicing his fused plastic toes apart with a knife and cramming them into his own pair of Vibrams. Size 12. And since he’s getting his new set of feet tomorrow morning, we could easily make this joke a reality with these current, outdated feet.
Home Depot homegirl gave Nick an over-excited high five and a “Hell yeah!” with the news of getting his new feet tomorrow.
Hell yeah! High five!
