The Bran Report

It's good for parts of you that you'd probably rather not think about.

I got the idea from Mildred Taylor

I am a man who walks everywhere, and have consequently worn through my cheap-ass shoes.

Some said it couldn't be done, others that it shouldn't. They said I didn't have the know-how, or any tools.

Well, guess who's stepping out tomorrow in shoes soled with the finest cardboard a man can fish out of a dumpster.

This guy.

When I told a friend back home about this genius plan, they said "OK, Sam". I am entirely OK with this.

Does this mean that you're going to be wearing sandals for the next 6 months, again?

Evidently this post wasn't as clear as I'd hoped.

No, the sandals have such worn heels they're actually quite tough to walk in. All I've done is cut foot-shapes out of a sheet of cardboard I slyly acquired, and put them in my shoes to replace the destroyed insole. It's working out great.

Don't get started on the "boots" theory of socio-economic unfairness.
