|The old boots...|
At first I thought maybe he was sick, but he seemed to feel fine. I asked if his boots hurt his feet and he adamantly said, “No!” I believed him at first, but soon began to suspect that he was fibbing. He just looked like someone who’s feet hurt.
I think he’d decided that if he complained, he might have to give up his beloved boots, and since a new pair had not yet materialized…he wasn’t willing to take the chance.
We took him to the mall and had his put his feet in one of those things they have to determine accurate size. His old boots were a size 8. His shoe size, according to the shoe store chart, was ten!!
