Clipless Mary Janes?


cool shoes

It turns out that one of our clients at my day job (Toy Store Website Designer) has a blog, which came up on the phone. “Oh you have a personal blog? Me too, it’s called I make bags out of inner tubes.”

“That’s cool! I have a blog called Bike Tinker. It’s about, um, about tinkering with bikes.”

“My housemate’s a bike mechanic! He repairs carbon bikes. Do you know anyone else who does that?”

Yes. But it’s a pretty rare skill!”

Anyway, it’s a funny small world, and I really like her shoe-remake, and I’m trying to get her cast off shoe tongues for bike mudflaps

    Me: Tongues
    Post Office Employee: You’ll need to fill out a form.
