I bought a pair of used sneakers 5 years ago for about $3.00. They were so worn out that last winter I parked them in my stairwell due to lack of tread. I went arse over tea kettle a couple of times the winter before last. My sister gave me a new pair with treads when Zellers started to drop their prices last fall. They are great sneakers, nice traction in the snow but not much support on dry pavement. I think, being a recycled rebel, I'm taking my old treadless sneakers out for a mission tomorrow afternoon.
It's time to sing along......
Head out to the bus stop.
Put on my old sneakers.
Racing with my shadow,
And at noon I'll always win.
I'm thirsty and off to the beer store.
Quench my thirst in the Canadian way.
I'll put my chair on my front steps,
And sit back and enjoy my day.
BORN TO BE MILD.
