I’ve had these boots since at least January 2007, maybe 2006, so it’s not unreasonable that they should be wearing a hole in the soles. They’ve been lots of places, and I’ve gotten my money’s worth out of them.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve noticed that they make walking uncomfortable. I *should* go buy a new pair, but so far, I haven’t. Shoe shopping is one of several things in my life that just never seems to get done- I have so many other things I’d rather do with my time than contemplate whether a shoe feels right… much less whether it looks good (I know my mother is reading this and nodding, saying something like, “Well, at least she tells the truth.”)
There are lots of other things I don’t ever seem to get around to. My winter coat, which I’ve also had for a long time–I’m guessing eight years– is missing at least one button. I could drop it off to get it fixed, but that would mean I’d have to remember to go pick it up. I could try to sew the button myself (I even have it!), but that seems like a colossal waste of time; whenever I sew a button on it is either too loose or too tight, never just right (here, my mother is nodding again, and rolling her eyes, wondering why I never learned to sew). I could get a new winter coat (the inside lining is torn up, too), which is what Francisco has suggested, but… I like this coat. I don’t want have to find something new to like or, worse, to try to like. I could ask Francisco sew the button on, but that would be admitting that in many ways I’m a terribly helpless creature when it comes to domestic tasks. Really, though, he already knows this.
What do you never seem to get around to? Why?
