I got my shoes shined yesterday. There's a shoemaker in the Empire State Building with an old-fashioned shoe-shine spot. I go everyone few months, when my shoes looks really bad.
I love getting my shoes shined. LOVE IT! I walk out amazed at how shiny they became, like they've been resurrected from the dead. It's like getting new shoes without having to untie them.
Perhaps I should learn to tie my own shoes. Arnold Vinnick, Republican Presidential candidate on The West Wing says you can't trust a man who doesn't tie his own shoes. Well, sir, I say you can't trust the opinions of an imaginary character (and a Republican nonetheless!!!).
Besides, it's a $3 shine (before tip) and my time is better served elsewhere. I think this is the reason Brian refuses to make his own ice (but I don't get that either).
P.S. Does anyone know what movie the title of this posting refers to? You'll kick yourself when I tell you.
