Now Go Get Yer Shinebox!

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.

Do you mean you should learn to shine your own shoes, instead of tie them? Either way, it's really time to learn to tie your shoes. And no, velcro is not the same.

And the movie is Goodfellas. Duh.

Really, Brian? You wont make your own ice? You are a man of many quirks...
