Just when I thought to myself to slow down a bit on the blogging front in February for the sake of quality over quantity, something happens to me that leaves me barefooted and feeling very vulnerable, which in turn forces this post to pop out uninvited. I must admit that it does leave me a little bit happy because it used to be things like these that drove me to blog in the first place!
What started to be a very normal Sunday afternoon, ceased being normal when I could not find my sneakers in the gym locker room while I was in the changing room for two minutes! I mean, it was there when I left it and when I wanted to put on the sneakers after changing, they were not there. I looked under the benches, in the locker, everywhere I could think of and they were nowhere to be found!
So there I was in the locker room, barefooted and a tad bit miserable listening to sad songs on my ipod. Thank goodness my sister was heading to the gym and I called her and she said she'd grab me something.
Looking back, I can't help but wonder what could have happened to those shoes. I don't know of the existence of any witches or wizards who can do magic, and sneakers, although used for running cannot possibly run on their own without someone to run in them! And they're big and bulky and cannot be accidentally pushed into a corner.
The only thing I can think of is that they might have been accidentally taken by someone else, but who on earth can't recognise their own shoes, and my socks were in there too! And it's not as though I use Adidas, or Nike Air or even Reebok pumps for anyone to want to pilfer them. They're very normal, non-branded shoes which are only about 5 months old and are still in good condition (because I only go to the gym twice a week) Plus, I get attached to my stuff, even shoes, especially when they treat me well, which is why I'm still using a phone which is over 3 years old and is outdated to the point where it has become something people joke about! But then if they were indeed pilfered by someone on purpose, I hope they have permanently smelly feet for the rest of their lives!
