Boys and girls wear shoes differently.
After looking at Miss A’s shoes: She might be getting a little big for these – I see a little more wear near the toes. Let me check.
After looking at Al’s shoes: What the world?!? How did he get a BIG GAPING HOLE in the bottom of this shoe? Did he step on a hot coal? What?
After I asked Al how he got that hole in his shoe, he tells me he has no idea. I would think he would have felt a draft or something. The hole was HUGE. Sigh.
