The Shoe Hunt
Sales Associate: "Can I help you?"
Me: "Hi, I'd like to exchange a pair of shoes I bought on Thursday."
SA: "What happened?"
Me: "Well, hehe...I got home and realized I don't like them. They feel like they don't have any cushion. I like my old shoes and want to get those. I'm not sure why I got a different shoe this time."
SA: Knowingly kids, "Ah ha!...You thought you wanted something different, didn't ya?"
Me: "Yeah, " I shrug.
SA: "You wouldn't believe how many people come back to the store wanting to try something different and then a few days later walk back through the door with the white bag in hand wanting to go back to the tried and true."
He then looks over at the BF and says, "You better watch out!"
We all got a good laugh out of that.
So, I'm now back at home wearing my new pair of the Adidas SuperNova Classics. I can't wait to take them out for a run tomorrow. Now that I have bought the same shoe twice, I feel like I have met a new milestone with running. I feel like like this makes me a more "serious" runner somehow (I'm sure this is all in my head).
