Appealing to my female audience...

Today, I'm going to talk about shoes...

Recently, HBoO and I went shopping in an attempt to replace my timeworn footwear. It was a bit of a sad moment for me, because this particular pair of shoes had seen so much. These were the shoes that had spanned much of our relationship, not to mention all of the adventuring in Europe. In one store, we found my shoe's clone...
Look at the new shoe on the left, proud to be fresh off the assembly line and naive to the hardships ahead. Now look at my old shoe, eight months on and it has seen the soil of four different countries and shielded my delicate feet against countless landscapes...
A feeble old man awaiting the next life standing beside a rising star of the next generation...

Or maybe it's just a shoe...

Anthropomorphism FTW!

Apparently Internet memes are all I have to offer these days.
