Today at the bookstore, a regular customer came in wearing two different tennis shoes. Well, they were the same brand, but two different colors, clearly from two different pairs.

“You’re wearing two different shoes, well, different colors. Did you plan on wearing two different shoes?” I asked.

“If you’re asking if it was intentional, yes, it was,” he answered. “It’s something my daughter started.

He went on to tell me that it’s an intentional conversation starter. A way to get strangers to talk to each other. A way in this disconnected world of ours to help people start talking to each other.

“Awesome. That’s perfect,” I said. “I’m going to write about that on the blog today.”
