Peter's "Jays" arrive. Apparently that's what all the kids call Air Jordan's these days. Or, at least, that's what Peter is calling them.
I hope he's not disappointed when they arrive. I think they look ugly. My brother even tried to convince Peter to get a less "clunky" looking shoe but he wouldn't budge on the "classic" Air Jordan.
This is the one he finally ended up ordering:
Two days after Peter ordered these, Sarah informed me that she wanted a pair of Converse.
Again, I ask, "What year is this?"
Apparently, Converse All Starts are back in style. And not just for kids - I've seen them on a lot of fashion blogs for women as well in all different colors
So Sarah's new spring shoe won't be cute sandals like normal, she'll be wearing these:
Peter is going to be sporting old-fashioned clunky looking Air Jordan's. Sarah is going to be sporting old-fashioned uni-sex Converse.
And I'm left pondering Ecclesiastes 1:9: "What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun."
Pretty sure fashion was not what the author had in mind when he wrote that but it sure does ring true!
