Astronaut In My Shoe

One day my nephew A. was playing with stickers. He gave me a rocket ship sticker, which I put on my shirt, and then he went away and did whatever little kids do with a sheet of stickers.

Later, when I was putting on my right shoe, I noticed one of the stickers--an astronaut--stuck inside. I can't remember if he gave it to me and it must have fallen off of my hand or shirt, or if it was just there, but all the same, I decided to leave it.

Now, every time I put on my light brown shoes I look inside and see a shiny astronaut. Aren't nephews great?

That's a way cute story... my nephew likes giving me his smiley face stickers from walmart after they have been stuck on his arm, his shirt,the floor and wherever else he managed to put it until it was no longer sticky on the back but was rather covered in lint and dirt and who knows what kinds of germs!

I just slipped of my shoe to see if there was something exciting inside. No astronaut. No smiley face. No scratch-n-sniff peanut. Just a boring old label: Josef Seibel: The European Comfort Shoe.

Not as much comfort (or enjoyment)I think as seeing an astronaut belonging to a nephew.

I LOVE my little nephew. Nephews are sooo much fun! I wish I could go visit him right now. And I really enjoy those small little gifts they leave for us. Just the other day, I was looking through my belongings and somehow one of my nephews toys ended up on my carry-on. It was nice to see it.
