When I was growing up one of the many things I did that annoyed my Mother was not untying my shoes when I took them off. She used to say "when you buy your shoes you can take them off how you want." I'm sure I rolled my eyes every time she said that.
I hadn't thought about Mom & untying shoes in a long time. Until yesterday when I walked into my room and found two pairs of shoes, still tied, on the floor. I don't remember the last time I untied my shoes to take them off.
