My New Sneaks

These were my new sneaks for like two hours. 


I loved them in the store. 

My stylish and lovely daughter helped me pick them out. 


Nike bright orange–cool, fashionable. 


“Just do it!”

But when I tried them on, I didn’t have socks, and had to use the ridiculous thin ones in the store.


The sneakers were snug and I asked for a larger size, which they were out of. 


I took the sneakers anyway, hoping they would be okay when I got home, but disappointingly, they were way too tight. 


And “the give” that the saleslady said would happen with the sneakers, absolutely didn’t. 


My foot was being crushed in there. 


I think Nike’s run small. 


Like the look, but not the sizing. 


Anyway, saw three people playing soccer in these (or something close to it) the same day. 


Orange is the new black. 😉

Not Every Problem Requires A High-Tech Solution

So I thought this was pretty smart.


Yes, it’s a “Smart” car.


But more important is this guy parked his car in a very smart way. 


The spot was too small even for this micro urban car.


So he just parked it sideways–and poof it fits.


Also, look how easy it is for him to drive out of the spot when he’s ready. 


Now, I’m not one to say whether this is legal or not (his rear wheels are on the sidewalk, of course).


Still there is something refreshing about this solution. 


Nothing high-tech about it — he didn’t need to move the cars further apart or shrink his own vehicle, rather just think out of the box. 


Frankly, it works, and I think this guy deserves the parking spot–so right on dude!  😉
