Yesterday I took Leta to buy some new sneakers, and after thirty minutes of trying on ones covered in glitter and ones with a built-in ballet rotating thing that, HOLY GOD, they are putting built-in ballet rotating things in kids’ shoes! People. This shit is crazy. Jesus wore homemade sandals and he turned out pretty good, you know?

We finally settled on this pair. No glitter or crazy accouterments, but they are silver. So, fancy enough. And she was really excited to show them to her friends at school today. Remember those days? Those days before adulthood destroyed everything?
