...a random musing....

This morning as I was driving my daughter to the train station, we came across a solitary work boot - a Doc Marten type - lying abandoned in the middle of the road. This is not the first time I have noticed single items of discarded footwear.
Where do they come from?
Does the owner not notice as one of their shoes/boots/trainers fly off?
I have visions of people getting some sort of a shock, and being scared right out of their shoes, and then running off, limping and unbalanced down the road!
...just a random musing...

Hmm...sounds like a story here. What on earth could scare them so bad they've ran off that quickly and left a boot behind?

Oh, now that was an eerie thought, Akasha! I like that dark thinking. I think I came by once before. And here I am again. BTW, thanks for tagging along!

Something I've always wondered myself!

I love this observation. I'd suggest that the shoe came off as he was grabbed around the middle and yanked into the shadows...screaming.

Maybe there clues...

Alan ~ that's the trouble with me, I see a story in everything!

Ello ~ it reminded me of that story too. :)

Nevive ~ That's me. The Queen of Dark Thinking! ;)

John ~ Glad I'm not the only one!

Stewart ~ My thoughts exactly! :D

Rick ~ Perhaps I should go looking for clues....

Good question! :-)

You had a great story about a pair of boots a while ago...

Put pen to paper and see what else your mind can make of it... maybe, like Alan said there a book waiting to be written.

Next time you are passing please pick up an award waiting for you. It's for your kindness and support.

Thank you.
