Adriana's Shoes

While staying up too late to figure out a crochet pattern for my friend (Fat Bottom Bag, you make the rockin' world go round), I saw a commercial for one of those Children's funds. This guy is walking hand in hand with a barefoot little girl and says, "This is Adriana. Everyday she has to walk barefoot over this rocky, dirt road because her family can't afford shoes." I have one thing to say to the spokesman: Look you smug, Gucci-wearing douche, pick her up or buy her some damn shoes. Look at that face; the kid's in pain. Yes, I know, it's not that easy, they can't shoe the whole country and that's why they need our help. But my aunt and uncle used to travel through South America with their church group and they would bring cheap ass sneakers (which you can buy at Sav On for $3) for the kids. Hell, even $2 flip flops would be better than nothing. Instead, he's dragging this kid over sharp rocks to tug at our heartstrings for God knows how many takes. Argh!

That's what you get for staying up late. It coulda been worse; you coulda bought something which you can't afford and don't need but was such a deal you couldn't pass it by.

NOT that that's ever happened to ME.
