My dad will be so proud…*

A few weeks ago, I was talking to my dad, and my dad said something that really struck a chord with me. It was this:

“Don’t hesitate to buy shoes,” said my dad. “Buy all of them. Especially those ones with the red soles.”

OK, so I’m paraphrasing here. I think he might ACTUALLY have said something about seizing the day, living life to the full, not putting off until tomorrow what you can do today, and all that. And I think the “not putting stuff off” bit might have been in reference to all of the STUFF belonging to me that’s still in my parents’ attic and my old bedroom.

But I chose to interpret it as “buy shoes”.**


It was my dad’s fault.

Am I grounded?


*Possibly not

** ON SALE, though! SALE.
