old man shoes

4 10 2008

His pants were hiked up high and cinched tight with a belt. The flannel shirt and jacket were spot on. The shoes were perfect-right down to the dust on them. Holding his glasses in his hand as he waited was an accurate imitation. Being too tall was the only problem. I was ambushed by this 80 year old as I waited for a flu shot. I had not expected to be sitting there crying but I was. That’s the way it is. I don’t know when an old man’s shoes will turn my day upside down.

…The sincerest form of flattery – HE was like so many others, but HE was one of a kind! Touching moment.
