Conversing about Converse All-Stars
When I was about 10 years old, I had two kinds of shoes on my wish list: pink and white and neon green high-tops like my sister had (luckily, I grew out of this one), and Converse All-Stars. Back then I didn't even know what they were called, being a sometimes-welfare-kid running around barefoot with no concept of brand names except adidas (All Day I Dream About Selena?). But I knew I liked them.
So, lucky for me, they're still around and still in style! As a post-birthday treat for myself, and to replace my other shoes that are falling apart, I bought a pair. You'd think I would have chosen turquoise or red or yellow, but I wanted grey. So far, I love them! They're so comfortable already.
Although maybe I'm not really cool enough to wear them since I don't call them "Chucks".
What about you? Did you have a wish from childhood that you've indulged as an adult? Or maybe there is something still on your list that you haven't gotten yet. Next on my list: a horse.
