This week Unknown Papi and I celebrated our third anniversary. We are broke so it was pretty low key, but we got to spend the day together and we had a great time. We had agreed that we would not exchange gifts, but that stinker cheated and got me a present anyway. Can you believe his duplicity?
He got me something I have been wanting for awhile now. A pair of silver Toms Shoes!!! They look like this:
Do you know about Toms Shoes? They are awesome and aside from being sported by hipsters all over San Francisco, they are shoes you can feel good about. You see for every pair of Toms Shoes that is purchased, one pair is given to a child in need. Why shoes? Because there are children all over the world that grow up without shoes. Did you know that there are soil-transmitted diseases that penetrate bare feet, that sores on bare feet can become a health issue when they become infected, that some kids can’t go to school because shoes are a requirement? Check out the video below if you want to see a shoe drop in action.
I am telling you about this company because I like them and support them. I have received no sort of inducement to promote them, I just thought you might like to know.
On Wednesday, Put Pie and I joined a friend and her daughter at the S.F. Zoo. It was a wonderful day, especially since admission was free. The only problem is that my friend got mugged in plain sight and no one did a thing about it, except Put Pie. Put Pie admonished the mugger and yelled, “No! No! No!”, while wagging a finger at him. Don’t worry, the assailant wasn’t armed, unless you count a beak as a deadly weapon.
We were sitting at some tables eating our lunch when a seagull jumped on the table and stole my friend’s cheese. It all happened so fast that it was over before we knew it was happening. Then a few minutes later as my friend was holding her sandwich in her hand, the bird swooped down and stole the sandwich right out of her hand. To add insult to injury, her two year old thought it was hilarious. I did too, but I managed to stifle my chuckles.
That’s it for me today! I hope you have a great weekend and that a seagull doesn’t steal your lunch.
