We are having a countrywide truck strike at present. Usually things like truck strikes goes relatively unnoticed in my world. Not today. It's Steve's birthday next week and he wants these so-called Tasman Aquashoes for his birthday. They'll also do well for walking on reefs in Tanzania. Well it seems as if the whole of Johannesburg has these shoes because they are all sold out. And I've been phoning outlets all morning. The new stock was meant to be delivered last week, but due to the bloody incoveniently placed truck strike, who knows when there will be new stock?
But I have found one remaining pair!!! In all of South Africa. At a warehouse somewhere in Hickville outside town. The shoe is a size 11, and Steve is a 10. Minor problem, I'm sure he won't even notice. Right?
He'd better thank me via the medium of a fantastic shag once I have nabbed a pair of these elusive soles. Even if they are a size too big.
