2020 lack of vision

I only went out for milk

As you can see, the aftermath of the Local Festival for Local People where it Never Rains left me shy one pair of shoes. My sensible black shoes, no less. The problem was not that they were not waterproof but rather that they were too waterproof -- rainwater cascaded from my overly fashionable jeans into the shoes and stayed there. All weekend. I've tried wearing them once since, but it wasn't a pleasant experience.

So this lunch hour I went out to try on that sensible pair of shoes I saw last week and thought, hmmmm, they might do for work. Well, no. The six was too small and the seven too big. Typical. However, there were a pair of "CherryBombSkullsChex" Old Skool Vans on the sale shelf. Maybe if I walk quickly, people won't notice that they're not sensible.

Otherwise, today I've been reading a report on cyberbullying, which is entirely in comic sans. Right now, my eyeballs feel cyberbullied.
