    and people would intentionally try to step on your feet to dirty them up?

    I don't know why I thought of this, probably because I bought new shoes for volleyball and wore them for the first time this week. I only wear them on the court, so they usually end up staying pretty clean.

    I like your zombie face....only because I have ambulothanatophobia, and I enjoy the adrenaline rush.

    I remember going in a slacks and wollen jumpers to line up and be told to tuck our shirts in and my tie not was a disgrace and for girls to be given wipes to take their make up off and having their hemlines and heels measured

    welcome to private religious education.... anything less than a double Windsor knot is apparently grounds for an eternity burning in flames

    In my secular school we couldn't wear tennis shoes. Throughout most of High School I wore BOAT SHOES.......the horror. In sophomore year I literally had a pair of blue suede slip on shoes from Tom Mckans.

    In terms of white tennis shoes, I know a man that will not date someone who wears white tennis shoes out to the bar. That's a deal breaker, ladies.

    by reg e. gaines

    my air jordans cost a hundred with tax
    my suede starters jacket says raiders on the back
    i'm stylin . . . smilin . . . lookin real mean cuz
    it ain't about bein heard just bein seen
    my leather adidas baseball cap
    matches my fake gucci backpack
    there's nobody out there looks good as me
    but the gear costs money it sure ain't free
    and i gots no job no money at all
    but it's easy to steal fresh gear from the mall
    parents say i shouldn't but i know i should
    gots ta do what i can to make sure i look good
    and the reason i have to look real fly
    well to tell ya the truth man i don't know why
    i guess it makes me feel special inside
    when i'm wearin fresh gear i don't have to hide
    but i really must get some new gear soon
    or my ego will pop like a ten cent balloon
    but security's tight at all the shops
    everyday there are more and more cops
    my crew's laughin at me cuz i'm wearin old gear
    school's almost over summer is near
    and i'm sportin torn jordans and need somethin new
    there's only one thing left to do
    cut school friday catch the subway downtown
    check out my victims hangin around
    maybe i'll get lucky and find easy prey
    gots to get some new gear there's no other way
    i'm ready and willin i'm packin my gun
    this is serious bizness it sure ain't no fun
    but i can't have my posse laughin at me
    i'll cop somethin dope just wait you'll see
    come out a the station west 4th near the park
    brothers shootin hoops and someone remarks
    HEY HOMES . . . WHERE'D YOU GET THOSE DEF NIKES
    as i said to myself. . . i likes em . . . i likes
    they were q-tip white bright and blinded my eyes
    the red emblem of michael looked as if it could fly
    not one spot of dirt the airs were brand new
    had my pistol knew just what to do
    followed him very closely behind
    waited until it was just the right time
    made a left turn on houston pulled out my gun and screamed
    GIMME THEM JORDANS . . . and he tried ta run
    took off fast but didn't get far
    i fired (POW) he fell between two parked cars
    he was coughin/cryin/blood dripped on the street
    and i snatched them air jordans off a his feet
    while layin there dyin all he could say was
    please . . . don't take my air jordans away . . .
    you think he'd be worried about stayin alive
    as i took off with the jordans there were tears in his eyes
    the very next day i bopped into school
    with my brand new air jordans man was i cool
    i killed to get them but hey . . . i don't care

    No tennis shoes except during p.e. class. Hard shoes - shined every morning. Dress slacks. No jeans or cords, shirts tucked in - with collars - and they were ironed. Hair combed, teeth gleaming, nails perfect. Stand up straight - hands at your side, behave yourself - or you'll know the reason why!

    And nothing white after Labor day until Memorial Day! That still must be honored! What would people think? I mean, really? Winter white is acceptable though........especially when traveling to warmer climates!

    Remember this now! I'm only going to say this once!

    LOL! I was a violent child. icon_redface.gif
