Footwear (a Mr. Deadman outtake)

5 Jun

Mr. Deadman once died in sneakers, Adidas, if you need to know, of a heart attack, while jogging. He died in sandals once, of heatstroke, on a sweltering August afternoon in Washington, D.C. One time he died of a brain aneurysm while wearing a shiny new pair of Johnston and Murphy wingtips. Mr. Deadman has died barefoot, peacefully in his sleep, on several occasions, a respectable, if unexciting, way to go. As a young boy, once, he even died in a pair of pajamas with feet.

But never, not once, so far, has Mr. Deadman died with his boots on.

    I never “Like” anything, but I like it!

    FYI, a stroke of pedantry: the first (preferred) spelling in dictionaries is aneurysm.
