comfortable shoes

"Do you like my shoes?"

"Yeah. I guess. Do you need for me to like your shoes?"


"Are you sure?"


"I'm going to have to challenge you on this one."

"If you said you didn't like them I wouldn't care."

"Okay. But you want to know when I wouldn't like your shoes."

She always looks at me like I am going to surprise her, "Yes."

"I wouldn't like your shoes if you said they were uncomfortable."

She looks up and to the right before she smiles.

Today I am grateful for a haircut. Family night. For Bets and Grace. For my sidekick. To watch my brothers play ball with my niece. For hamburgers. For a wind, a faint thunder and frogs and crickets and a simple sweetness in the air.
