My God, it’s full of shoes.

My honey recently ordered shoes over the Internets. We received them yesterday. The box is huge! And yes, it’s full of shoes. He didn’t order just one pair. Some people buy a lot of shoes, but they rarely buy the same pair more than once. He did. He ordered five. Five identical pairs of black Reebok shoes! This way he will have a fresh pair for each workday and the rest can stay at home and do what shoes do while they’re not being worn. This is important (somehow, I guess). He already had two identical pairs, which was working pretty well for him in its own way, but apparently not well enough. He claims he once had four pairs of identical shoes (I don’t remember this). We shall see if five somehow solves all the ills that two or even four wasn’t able to cover. At least, this way, they last a long time and he does walk a lot so… perhaps there’s something to this.

Naturally, he sent me out shopping for Odor-Eaters.

    Yes, if you're able to do simple addition, that makes seven pairs of shoes. 2+5=7 Though he may put 3 pairs away for "later" and only rotate through 4 pairs for now.

    Without odor eaters the air would be of a different color.

    LOL! This is true. And I’ve purchased lots of cans of Dr. Scholl’s odor-fighting foot and shoe spray over the years! The benefit of having that many shoes is that they have time to dry completely before wearing again, so it’s actually been a pretty good thing.
