On Hope and Shoes

I see hope everywhere. I maybe pessimistic, but it doesn’t mean I give up easily. I know when there is still hope left in something. Like my shoes, for instance. I was doing some cleaning at home yesterday when I spotted my dusty shoe rack. After a little inspection, I found out that I had four pairs of shoes that needed repair. Since I had spare money, I decided to take them to our trusty shoe repairman and save ‘em shoes from impending destruction.

I sent the shoes to the neighborhood repair shop just before we heard the morning mass. While the two shoes needed stitching of the soles, the other two had broken heels that needed to be replaced. When the shoes were done, they were sent to our house and I paid a total of P300 for the entire batch. Pricey? Not really. Shoe repair shops in malls charge way higher for the same services.

When was the last time you had your shoes repaired?
