So People Love the Cons...


So my friend gave me a pair of brand new converse. Never before, did I have a desire for these shoes, and there is no way I would have gone out and bought them myself. But now that I own them, it seems like converse is a way of being. haha. Honestly, every time I wear them, someone comments or gives me some sort of affirming nod. Its like the people that drive buses, motorbikes, or VW bugs, they wave at each other. Like they are in this special little club. I can't even believe I got free membership into this club....

A club that I didnt even know existed.

You think I am kidding. I am not.

Today in class, the guy next to me (super cool masters student) points at my shoes..."sweet shoes" he says. I look down at his shoes. Buddy has got cons on. Through the course of the lecture he nudges me and points to the guy down our row. Yup...cons. "Love it"...was all he said. Its like I made a new friend.

Who even knew?
