Went to the lake. It’s Michigan, so the water was cold, but I love to play in the waves. Ran up and down the beach then happened to look back.One of my shoes was G O N E.
I /thought/ I had left them out of the reach of the waves, but apparently, the sneaky lake grabbed one and moved it down the beach. I start jogging towards it.
A wave comes up, pulling it closer to the water before dropping it.More waves push and pull at it. I’m running. I grab the errant shoe. I turn back to get the obedient shoe.
Sonofabitch shoe is being lapped at by waves.Run back up the beach.Collect both shoes.Sweaty up top, but freezing from the knees down.Michigan.
