Payless on Pine and Lewis is not the nicest shoe store in town but everyone seems to know him there and it seems relatively safe. Unfortunately, they do not have the shoes he wants in a size 14 but they do have them in a size 13. He assures me that once he cuts his toenails that the size 13 will fit just fine!!! (gross, gross, gross, and more gross) So, the shoes are bought and after a nice 30 minute conversation with the clerk we exit the store. As we are leaving the largest black man in the biggest fur coat you have ever seen comes up to us and says in a very deep voice "Hey, y'all want to buy some movies?". Michael replies, very innocently "I would sir , but I don't have a projector". At this point I am laughing like the fool that I am and the large man in the large fur coat moves along for sure thinking that we were the crazy ones.
p.s. I start training for my second marathon in a few weeks and I can't wait!!
