When I saw this video, I knew I would have to blog about it. My last couple of entries have been rather serious in tone, so I thought something lighter was in order.
One of the most endearing memories I have of my dad is his teaching me how to tie my shoes. I was in kindergarten and needed to be able to show Sr. Stephana I could tie my own shoes and thus earn the coveted gold star on my report card.
It seems that I tie my shoes backwards from my dad. I clearly remember him sitting in front of me and showing me his tying technique. I apparently mimicked him perfectly but in mirror image. Nonetheless, it has been working for me all these years.
After watching this video though, I was a little bit paranoid about my shoe tying ability. Was I a granny or a reefer?
I am happy and relieved to announce that I’m a reefer and shall continue to have tight shoe knots.
