    Somedays I find myself saying "WTF" over and over

    I usually wear an old pair of Sperry Topsiders for working around the yard. On most days I have to tie them about 6 times and hour. Other days I can get through 8 hours of shoveling and they stay tight as a drum.

    What's up with that?

    You're old and retired. You should have shoes that don't need to be tied.

    PS - I don't wear shoes that need to be tied.

    Stop shoveling. That should help some.

    I bet I don't tie my topsiders more than once every month or two and I wear them every day, all day.

    Just tie a figure 8 knot in both sides and cut the suckers off if they are a problem.
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    I don't know what Sperry Topsiders are, but from your post I figure them to be some sort of footwear.

    Pick up a pair of Vibram Fivefingers. Preferably the KSO Treks. They're like modern day ninja shoes. They may look strange, but are the most awesome piece of footwear you will ever put on.

    Just make sure to pick up some Injinji socks to go with them.

    No need for the 80's duds. What were called docksiders back then are in again in some circles. Teens. Tweens. Not just brown, they're in all colors and plaids too. I haven't seen adults wearing the new styles but I figure that's next. I will not be one of them. I didn't like them the first time, and I lean in a preppy direction, but I'm preggers and though I haven't really popped out yet, I'm scared cankles may make an appearance in later months. Cankles + Sperry's = No-no.

    The last time my Topsiders came untied was 1985.

    Of course, that was the last time I wore them.

    Does "WTF" stand for wiggle toes freely?
    Often wrong, never in doubt

    No, regular fit Lee jeans and a trim fit Banana Republic t-shirt.

    Terry! Unretire! Now!
    Mapie is a conventional looking former Hollywood bon viveur, now leading a quiet life in a house made of wood by an isolated beach. He has cultivated a taste for culture, and is a celebrated raconteur amongst his local associates, who are artists, actors, and other leftfield/eccentric types. I imagine he has a telescope, and an unusual sculpture outside his front door. He is also a beach comber. The Rydster.

    /shoes with zippers rock too by the way.

    You need to move to someplace where nature is not out to kill you.

    According to this stepping on them may be, umm, beneficial. So don't discount the barefoot thing just yet.
