Today I was at the movies and had the misfortune to sit next to a female clad in a teensy dress and what must, one supposes, be characterized as shoes. In fact, I believe that even in the short history of this blog these offensive footwear have come up before, also with a short skirt. The ones that look like someone cut off a polar bear’s feet and then put them on over a spacesuit. I kept looking over to stare in mesmerized disgust, whispering furiously to my friend that I simply could not bear it. Implacably (for he is a practical man) he answered that the lights would go out soon. Which they did and I started breathing normally again.
