Fings Ain't What They Used To Be

A visiting child asked me if I'd surf the Net with him. And what did he want to look at? He wanted to look at shoes on eBay. At first I thought his mother must have put him up to it, but- no- his favouritest thing in life- after watching our footballers fuck up in Europe- is shopping for shoes.

I know, I'm a fogey. But I grew up in the era of Just William. Shoes were for scuffing. And a visit to the shoe shop was only a couple of notches worse than a visit to the dentist.
