What’s up Sweet Paul?
Spring is upon us and once again I meet it
with mixed emotions.
On the positive side I love spring because
I can shed boots and any winter footwear
and get my beloved saddle shoes and
penny loafers out of the closet. Ever since
I could dress myself I wanted penny loafers.
As a kid I refused to wear any form of
sneakers–I simply hated them. For gym
class, my mom had to run around town to
find the right pair of old-fashioned canvas
tennis shoes. I was such a horror.
This spring I have my sights on a pair
of olive-green embossed leather penny
loafers. I will rock them.
But the parts of spring I don’t like so
much? The merciless spring light. Every
year it happens, usually when I’m lounging
on the couch, that sun comes in my window
and I can see everything: dirt, dust, faded
fabric on the couch, walls that need to be
painted. Usually I just pull down the blinds,
but this year I will do something about it:
I will paint those walls and get a new couch.
I will even do some cleaning. Or maybe I can
just pay someone to do it for me while I’m
out showing off my new olive-green penny
loafers in embossed leather?
