They are on their last legs, so to speak.
The sole is cracked. They leak. The zipper sticks.
But I love them so.
Not just because they’re uber-comfortable and they go with everything I own.
But because of David.
These trusty toe-warmers have accompanied me to some of my favourite David concerts.
They’ve kept me warm in frosty lineups waiting for MoTab to begin.
They’ve bounced me senseless for Zero Gravity.
They’ve pounded the pavement in Times Square before helping me put one foot in front of the other over to Irving Plaza.
I’d like to say I was wearing them when I heard the Announcement but I was at home in my slippers listening to the cell cast… so my boots were spared being salt-stained by my tears. (Sorry, couldn’t resist, hahaha.)
But I think I will cry when I finally have to say goodbye to these babies. Every time I put them on, they transport me right back to those amazing times.
I hope they at least last until 2014.
How about you guys? Do you have favourite David mementos you’d be sad to lose?
