I recently visited a friend who has 2 small dogs. She was microwaving their food for some unknown reason. She burned it. Moments later, I was informed of canine excrement on both shoes. When we left, I removed both shoes & socks, placed them in a trash bag, and headed to a local shoe store. I walked in barefoot, and told the greeters, I need shoes & socks. My girlfriend laughed & said, "You KNOW somebody in here's going to recognize you!" We shared a laugh, and I bought the pair in the above photo. If I did get "busted," they were kind enough to just let it be.
