Life's Mysteries ~ Shoes in the Road

Ever catch yourself wondering how a perfectly good (by all accounts) shoe ends up in the middle of the street?  I do.  Today I saw a shoe on my way to lunch.  How did it get there?  Who is walking around half barefoot?  Was this an accident or on purpose?

Did someones son or daughter toss it out of the school bus window?  Not likely, since school has been out for the summer since two weeks ago.  Or did some little darling give it a heave-ho in the midst of a temper tantrum?  This was an adult size shoe, so could it have been thrown out of a car on a dare?  I just don't know.

We couldn't blame anyone for purposely sending some very ugly footwear out the window...they would be guilty of littering, but doing the fashion world a favor.  Perhaps the fashion police ditched them as a favor to society.  That would be understandable in my mind.

There is no clear answer to all of the questions.  This is simply another of life's mysteries.  Have you seen strange things in the roadway while you were driving?

  1. That is so funny. Every once in a while I see a shoe in the road, too. I always wonder how someone lost ONE shoe! Why not a pair? lol xo Diana

    1. Diana - Exactly! What's up with that anyway?

  2. You are too cool! I too have wondered about the stray shoe in the road. The only things we see in the road around here are bad drivers.

  3. Yes, I have always wondered about that. I have also seen articles of clothing too. I have also seen shoes hung up on wires - what's up with that?

    1. Lisa - My guess is the clothing flies out car windows the same way shoes must. As for the shoes on wires, I have read that that is a gang thing, though I am not sure what it is supposed to mean.
