He Just Walked on By

This didn’t happen today, but it really did happen. It’s a funny story (click the link at the bottom to see the actual story and sequels to it). If it doesn’t make you laugh, maybe it’ll start your day with a smile at least. Enjoy!

He Just Walked on By

 

I was walking the dog

Pretty much minding my own business

And here comes this kid

Walking down the sidewalk toward me

Pulling a shoe

 

Yep

This young fella was probably ten or eleven years old

Normal looking, nice-looking kid

He had a rope tied to a shoe

And was dragging the shoe along behind him

Not the actual shoe.... a cousin, I think

Not the actual shoe…. a cousin, I think

The shoe was flopping and bouncing around

And it was, to say the least, a comical sight

 

I smiled at him and said

As if I saw such sights every day

“Walkin’ your shoe?”

“Yep,” was all he said

No smile; no look of disdain

Don’t be a smart-ass old man

No sir, he just walked on by

 

I had to laugh

It was, after all, something I might have done

When I was his age

Hell… I might’ve even done it now

If I’d thought of it first
