I was just thinking about how today is Labor Day.
Which made me think several things. One: Oh, fuck, it's fall. (Which is something I've been thinking for a while now, with the shifting of the light.) Also: Holy crap, it's September! Four weeks till the wedding! And then: Man do I have a terrible mouth. And last but not least: no white after Labor Day.
Then I thought, no white what? Is it no white clothing at all? Or just no white shoes?
Which then got me to thinking, I don't have any white shoes anyway, unless you count my tennies.
This further led to trying to remember if we called them "sneaks" or "tennies" when we were growing up. I called Betty.
Tennies. Definitely tennies.
Even though his mother is British and would call them "trainers," Nick grew up calling them "sneakers." But not "sneaks."
And now I am wondering if the English ever abbreviate them to "trainies?" Or is this kind of thing limited to my dorky family?
Whatever you call them, and no matter what color they are, I hope you're having a great Labor Day. And if it's not Labor Day for you, I hope it's a happy Monday.
