Around 6:30PM today in the PUP campus, at age 21, I get my shoelaces tied by someone else in front of all the students going home, like I was some bratty little kid (and some of those students might have thought I was too).  I’ve never been particularly good with tying shoelaces.  They start unraveling with every step I take and I’m constantly re-tying them.  I only know of one way of tying shoelaces, and that’s the one where you make two bunny ears and knot them together.  I don’t know how to do it with one loop because I never understood where the unlooped end was supposed to go.

And so here is the story:   as we were leaving the campus, my friend stopped to tie his shoelaces.  I noticed mine needed some tying too, and I jokingly told him to tie them for me since he was already bent down anyway.  He proceeded to do so with an “okay, sure” and wouldn’t stop even if I told him I was only kidding.  I couldn’t bend down to stop him because I was afraid of hitting his head.  Having to stand there waiting for him to finish tying one foot was embarrassing, with a lot of people passing by and looking.  Guess the joke was on me haha.  Just to make it funnier though, I was thinking of tying my left shoe while he was tying the right one.

This happened after we “finished” helping with the stage props for the forum.  Now I am beat.  One last photo below.  Good night.
