Today I’m giving away a pair of used Nike running shoes, size 8. I have good friends from Vancouver and their daughter Heather needed a place to stay for an important internship in Toronto last summer. So, she stayed with me, and was an excellent room mate. Heather is good company, very well-read, does the dishes, looked after my house when I wasn’t here, and was sweet and thoughtful. She also made excellent baked fish and was able to keep the garbage routine straight.
She had a wee luggage problem on her return journey and couldn’t fit these in her bag. She told me to give them away but I had forgotten all about them until today when I was cleaning up a closet downstairs. I’ll put them in the New Circles box. They still have some life left in them and they are bound to find a great new owner there.
In case she sees this, Hi Heather, I hope you’re not working too hard!
