Shoes in the Charity Shop
I was walking past the local charity shop
And then something made me stop.
There in the window display, I saw
the most beautiful shoes I had ever seen in a charity shop.
I thought of going inside and asking about them
What size are they? I wondered
I hope they’re a size five, my size, and a wide fit.
It was then that I saw him, Keanu Reeves, in Partick of all places.
He looked as good in real life as on the screen in the Matrix.
My legs felt more than a bit wobbly, as he walked towards me.
He smiled and asked if I knew how to get to the Record Factory.
I couldn’t speak for drooling, but I eventually managed to mumble something about showing him where it was.
So, what do you talk about, when you’re walking along the road with a Hollywood star?
Here we go; I asked why he was going to the Record Factory on a Saturday afternoon.
He had decided to do a unpublicised mini tour with his grunge band
Glasgow was his first gig, and he had got off at the wrong underground station.
Well, I couldn’t believe my luck. Keanu Reeves in my own back yard!
As a way of thanking me, the lovely Keanu gave me some complimentary tickets for the gig.
Once I had recovered from the hug and thanks from Mr Gorgeous,
I ran back to the charity shop to try on those beautiful shoes.
They’ll look amazing with my new dress the one in stunning rouge.
I think I’ll wear them tonight. I might get lucky, you never know.
Even if I don’t I’ll still enjoy the show.
