However, when I got here, I realized that it felt more and more like my heel was lower than it should be. I looked down and saw - my shoes had fallen apart. Literally.
I stumbled over to the desk and showed them to Ron, who gave me duct tape and told me to do what I could. I have liberally taped them together, and it does seem to be holding, but I'm still sitting here wearing shoes held together by duct tape.
I think I'm amused.
