Because he was sad:
But who are we kidding what he REALLY wants is a walk but you know Jack sometimes life is hard and you can't always have exactly what you want exactly when you want it.
Ok, case in point:
So yes I bought these. But as I'm not spending this year (ahem) but I just can't say no to myself (my favorite quality/hmm really should work on that, tomorrow) I waited too long and they sold out in my size so I ordered the half size smaller (last pair in the known universe apparently) and dang it if they aren't just a scosh small and while I'll do a lot for a pair of shoes I won't lose a toe for 'em.
Return To Sender.
So, NOW I have to wait til I can find them in my size somewhere in the Western Hemisphere (where I can get free shipping). Waiting, waiting...
See what I mean, Jack?
Sometimes you just have to wait for an all's well that ends well...
