And so it is.... This reminds me of a poem I wrote once about a child who did not get something he wanted for Christmas and couldn't understand why his daddy got a new Harley...or something like that. It's been a while. I liked your poem a lot, Eric.

Thank you L Milton, good analogy! I hear there is money to be made in this sneaker thing, but its sounds like a lot of hard work! Glad this silly piece hit the mark for you.
