I have a question for my shoes. Specifically my shoelaces.
Why, shoelaces, do you insist on untying yourselves while I’m sitting at my desk?
Has anyone else noticed this bizarre shoelace phenomenon? I can understand my shoelaces coming untied after I’ve been walking all over the city, but when I’ve spent the last 6 hours sitting at a desk, how is it possible for my shoe to come untied? I am double-knotter too. This shouldn’t happen. And yet every so often when I stand up and start walking I realize that my shoe is no longer tied and I am slipping out of my shoes for no apparent reason. My feet aren’t moving during the day except for the occasional trip to the kitchen or bathroom or perhaps a toe-tapping to the radio, but this movement shouldn’t be enough to jiggle my laces out of their double knot, should it?
The best I can come up with for this is that there must be some sort of mystical shoelace goblin who’s sole purpose in life is to go around to unsuspecting desk-dwellers and undo their laces. Anybody else got anything better?
