Spoo - if you can't pull those off, who amongst us can?
I remember when you snagged those; in my mind I fused your online persona with those shoes to the point where every time I see your name, I see them (you should have avatar'd them at some point).
When those shoes landed with you, they found their rightful master. I fear something will break in the timespace continuum if they leave your person. Other things may come and go, but those slippers are yours.
