This one came out of the blue one afternoon when Joe and I were walking around town on vacation. We saw this well-put-together woman in her 70s dressed in leopard pants and a sparkly black top.
“She looks good,” Joe commented as she passed by. “Except look at those shoes.”
Joe pointed to the beige, worn-out orthopedic shoes old people often wear. You know the kind.
“I’m going to make bedazzled orthopedic shoes. People like her need me!”
“Why even bother, Joe?” I asked.
“Because old people like to look good, too, damn it!”
