There’s his shoes. So where is his next destination?
There’s his shoes. So what is his next conquest?
There’s his shoes. So what journey is he embarking on next?
There’s his shoes. So is he leaving us again?
Those were the questions that the people in John’s life always asked whenever this well-worn pair of shoes was sighted at the doorway.
The children were sad that he had to go for yet another long month or so without a father figure not to mention a sweet or two here and there. His wife was in the same boat, thinking of the lonely nights without her soulmate, her protector. While his mother worried about his wanderlust nature, thinking that maybe some day, the family breadwinner, her only son may not come back.His counterparts, on the other hand, were simply amazed at his love for new conquests and new journeys.
All in all, the sight of those shoes in the open tickled everyone in their own way.
