Have you ever had a time when the way you have to dress for work just makes you want to go back to being a child? I wanted for Gary to show that deep in his heart, he was like this. Even though society dictates that one must dress as nicely as possible for a job interview, Gary found that wearing his dress shoes were not comfortable. So he decides to remove them to continue his walk. Doing this not only made him feel better physically, but made him feel closer to his missing wife. See what you think and then please read, "The Compass Society" to finish exciting your imagination!
It was a sunny September morning. There was a crispness in the air that held the promise of fall. Gary appreciated that crispness. It made wearing his suit a little more tolerable and energized him. He felt younger than his almost twenty-five years and also felt hopeful. The spring in his step only lasted a few blocks, however. He started to realize that his dress shoes, the ones he bought a few years back because he thought they were so comfortable, were not the best walking or hiking shoes. He felt his shoes rubbing against his heels with each step, slowing him down and causing him to walk cautiously. He wanted to remove them and remove the barrier that separated him from walking quickly to what he hoped would be his salvation job. The job that might, just might, put him back on the road to success. He stood at the corner, waiting for the signal to change and allow him to proceed by crossing the street. Why not? he thought to himself. If Stacy were here she’d say, “You’re being miserable and that’s not what life is all about. Take your damn shoes off and skip down the road like you’re a kid again.” He slipped off the shoes that were weighting him down. He quickly pulled off his socks and stuffed them into the openings of his shoes. The business people around him on the street corner looked on with mixed expressions comprised of amusement, amazement, envy, disbelief and disgust. There were always the ones that offered the look of disgust, no matter what you did. In return, Gary offered a weak smile to everyone watching the show and shrugged just before the light turned green, offering him an escape from further silent judgment.
