Still Open

I have a dance exam coming up on Thursday, and I really needed to get dancing shoes.  Problem: no freaking time.  I'm either at school from 8-6, or at work from 9-5.  No real time to drop by a shoe store.  And besides that, I had no idea where I could find a dance store.  I had a couple friends that told me what street to look on, but... well, let's just say I get lost really easily.  Still, I really needed these shoes, and if it was along one street, there shouldn't be too much of a problem, right?  So I planned to grab shoes today after school.
Of course, life struck.  I left my jacket in my dance class, so I had to drop by my teacher's class to get it.  Then one of my friends asked me to drive her home, and I couldn't say no, could I?  So by the time I got on the road again, it was about 6:30, and I still had to find the store.  Finally I spotted it, and I could have sung for joy.  I pulled in, and then I got a look at the times.  Open 10-6 Monday through Friday.
Still, the lights were on, and when I checked the door, it was unlocked, and I poked my head in.  A woman came from the back room and asked if I was here for the shoe fitting.
Me:  "Uh, no, but I am here to buy shoes."
I guess she'd specifically left the store open late for someone that hadn't shown up yet.  She was very kind and got me a pair of shoes, and I went on my merry way with a grateful prayer.

Fare thee well, friend!


  1. Isn't it great all of the little blessings in life?
    I'm glad that you got your shoes okay! Good luck on your dance exam!

  2. Don't worry, you can totally handle it! And maybe perform for us later with your mad dance skills... >:)

    1. Heh. Dance skills that include tripping during the exam?
