Friday was such a good day. Really, there are so many cool things happening right now. I can’t divulge them all just yet…
But know this…
I am winning!
And what better way to celebrate said winning than to wear your new, surprise gift…Cherry Red Doc Martens! Oh my good god.
Let me tell you the story. Catherine (my 12th grade English teacher) and I have stayed in touch. We write each other good, old fashioned “put-pen-to-paper-stick-a-stamp-on-and-find-a-mail-box” letters a couple of times a month. (As well as these new whizz-bang “gone-in-a-second-even-if-you-didn’t-mean-to” emails).
Anyway, a couple of weeks back Catherine asked for my shoe size. She would tell me nothing more and my growing curiosity was sated when I arrived home on Wednesday night to find a great big box waiting on the kitchen counter.
What could it be? How about…Cherry Red Doc Martens! I swear, as soon as I glimpsed the corner of them in there I snapped the lid back shut in shock. I’ve wanted Cherry Red Doc Martens since I was old enough to know what they were! And here was a pair! For me! That fit perfectly!
The best part of all is, I know there’s a story behind them. And I can’t wait for Catherine to share it with me.
Because not only will the story be something special. But it will be told by one of the best storytellers I know.
