So I decided that we will have reoccurring themes. This one will be entitled, “WHY??” And under this theme I will post anything and everything that causes me to stop and ponder this very question. I’m sure you will too.
I decided to truly find out what would possess a person to not only put this on their foot, but moreover, pay legit, non-counterfeit, U.S. dollars for a pair of these suckers. Out of respect for the company, I pixelated the brand, so none of you will never, ever, never guess what it is.
I started the journey to enlightenment with Josie, Douglas, (I doubt that’s her real name), and Carla. I packed a tape recorder, a legal pad, and a smooth writing ball point pen just to ensure that I got every bit of information. When I arrived the ladies were just finishing up an apple (they all 3 shared it), and were more than happy to see me.
Well, 2 out of the 3 were. Carla and Josie were welcoming, really nice and personable, but Douglas tried to cut me with her nail. (TWICE!) Apparently they call her “The Snake” at their local Mervyn’s.
Okay. So the next lady I got had just come out of an underground discotheque, and although at first glance seemed like a lovely woman, she had a very hostile tone. I had to give her a few minutes to put her supplies in the back of her Taurus before she would answer the question at hand.
No, Sally, I won’t F*$# off, OKAY!?
And last, but not least. Miss Freetie, who refused to let me photograph her face, was a little frustrating to interview. She was rattled and paranoid, and had a very hard time giving me an answer for anything. At one point just to get a simple answer out of her I asked if she had 2 feet, and she said something about O’Reilly Auto Parts stealing money from her.
However, I really wanted 3 solid points of view for this segment. And Josie, Douglas, and Carla counted as one as far as I’m concerned.
So there you have it. I spent 4 years and 7 months living in the fissures of an off the grid Arctic glacier, eating only snowflakes and hand-caught fish to report this. What a waste.
