And You Thought Skechers Were Cool

Apparently not so much anymore; in the eyes of the young, anyway.

Yesterday, Baret and I spent the day with his father for his 61st birthday. Also over were Baret's sister and her family, including his 11 year-old nephew, D. After lunch, we were having a blast playing a DVD-version of Family Feud. Baret, D., and I were playing as Team B.

Our question came up as "Name something that - just by looking at them - can tell you someone is a geek." We started whispering and jotting down the obvious...glasses, pocket protector, high pants, braces. After we ran out of obvious ideas and still had a blank to fill, we started brainstorming. D. says, "Skechers! All the geeks at school wear Skechers."

I glanced down to wear my Skecker tennis shoes were sitting under the TV tray where I'd kicked them off. Unable to resist, I grabbed one and held it silently up in front of him.

"Yes!" he said, excitedly, before realizing they were mine, "Just like those!"

I erupted into laughter and poor D. turned red and gave me a sheepish grin. "Sorry", he said.

I assured him that, no, I was a total geek and wasn't in the least upset. We shared a laugh, and won the round.

"Skechers", I am happy to report, however, was not on the list.

    I simply desired to appreciate you yet again. I am not sure the things I would've done without those tricks shown by you on such area of interest. It was before a very depressing problem in my view, but encountering the specialised manner you dealt with it took me to leap over happiness. I am grateful for this service as well as hope that you really know what a powerful job you are always providing teaching men and women via your web page. Most probably you've never come across any of us.
