I am pretty sure my pathological need to see my name emblazoned on things is deepseated, caused by NEVER seeing my name in the personalized license plate rack in souvenir shops, and an older brother who would take my stuff to torment me.
It is what it is. I have wanted NikeID shoes for at least five years. This year, I finally bought them for myself for Mother's Day. I had a gift card, so I could almost justify the extra cost. Of course, styles changed and colors changed every time I looked at the custom shoe feature, but finally, I made something I thought I liked.
I got SOOOOO excited when UPS delivered my shoes to me yesterday. I couldn't stand it! They came all the way from Thailand:
Pan Asia Footwear Public Company
Pan Tech R & D Co, LTD
177/2 Moo 5 Baypass Rd.
on Dragon Air and Cathay Pacific.
And they look like THIS!
Yeah, I know, a little plain. Kind of funny that I would make them look like bowling shoes. Over the years, I have designed plenty that looked like clown shoes.
But these are for real. And since they say "Go Bets" on them, I have to get on the treadmill. I guess I think I have to earn the right to wear them....and that's ok.
On a very happy note, one of my knitting friends was just taken off the lung transplant list because she was deemed too healthy for her transplant; now she goes in to be 'tortured' (physical therapy) frequently. Thinking "Bets, get your ass on the treadmill" has been amended to "Bets, go join Denise for her walk."
I love that.
