Odd Shoes on the Road

Have you every really noticed all the shoes on the roadways?? Just one shoe. Not a pair of shoes. This has had me perplexed for the past 3-6 weeks. There seem to be odd shoes on the road everywhere I look. How can people just loose the one shoe? Why don't they stop the car and get the shoe they drop? How is it one shoe gets dropped on the road? Did they have their feet hanging out the window? If so, if they were shoes with laces, how did the laces get loose enought for the shoe to fall off.

The shoes I have seen in the past 4 weeks-- and there are at least 3 pairs per week that catch my eye--have all been thrown over the overhead electrical wires. How does that one shoe stay up there. It is a real shoe mystery. There must be a conspiracy going on. People are purposely planting these one shoes just in my locations and roads that I travel. There just is no way it can be all that random. There are just too many shoes.

I wonder if I were to start collecting them , if maybe I would not end up with a pair?!

Really. The next time you are in your car, just pay attention to the wire overhead and the shoulder of the roads. I bet you will see a lot of shoes!

What I do is kick them in the pants with a diamond buckled shoe!

This has become a life long annoyance. My friends think I have lost my mind worrying about where they come from, but, they make me angry trying to imagine where they come from. I mean, how do they all get there, pairs and single. Hanging from wires I understand, I picture people walking home from the shops, they arrive in the house and look down to see only one shoe on there feet. Argh!
