I am just curious. You see, Berry lost half a pair of her Havaianas a few months ago. Today, Berry lost half a pair of her brown Tiny TOMS with pink hearts. So sad.
But what bothers me is, what happened to the lost pair? I feel bad for the other pair, and can't seem to throw it. I dislike the feeling of missing pairs. Knowing that one is home safe, while the other is somewhere out there =( I know, I am too attached to Berry's shoes.
I really don't get it though.
You see, every time Berry would drop a shoe in Manhattan, somebody would come running after us. No fail. One time it was a banker-type guy. Another time, two twentysomethings looked for us a good block or two away from the B,D Grand Street subway stop in the Lower East Side just to give me Berry's shoe. Most of the time, fellow parents, who know how it feels about kids losing their shoes would come and tap me on the shoulder, handing a sandal or a boot. And in cases where we realize we lost a sock or a shoe? Dada has often found it lying on the road or the sidewalk, precisely where it was dropped or a few meters from it at the most. So yeah, Berry tends to lose a sock or a shoe a lot, but we always found them, in Manhattan of all places!
Meanwhile, here in Singapore, in both instances, the shoe just disappeared! We retraced our steps and couldn't even find a trace of the shoe anywhere. Nobody tapped us on the shoulder to return the fallen shoe.
Which begs the question? Where did the shoe go? Did somebody pick it up and thought it was cute and brought it home? Why can't they just leave it on the floor and wait for the owner to come back for it? Or at least set it on one side where people won't walk over it.
I just don't get it. What do people here do with one lost shoe?
