23 years in the making… Converse


I’ve wanted a pair of converse ever since I saw a Wimpy ad for them at the age of 3. Wimpy is (was?) a fast food chain in South Africa, where I was born and raised. They had to be RED!  They were prohibitively expensive… 23 years and a continental move later I’m finally in a  position to own a pair. They arrived today and I’m as excited as if I was a kid again. It’s times like these I feel I’m being true to what I was taught by one of the most influential people in my life, Mr. Larry Kilgore (my middle school tech teacher): you have to grow old, you don’t have to grow up. I have a pair of RED converse bitches! Stay young.
