The Daily Ping

P is for Ping. That's good enough for me.

Shoe Sizin’

I bought some shoes last night. Two pair… the second was half price. Not bad.

But something strange I noticed: my feet must be growing. My previous pair of shoes were an 8 1/2 but I had to buy 9s this time. I’m well aware of the difference in sizes between different brands, but I bought the same brand! 8 1/2 used to leave me plenty of toe room, but the 8 1/2s now leave my toe touching the edge of the shoe. What’s going on here?

At this rate of increasing a 1/2-size every 1 1/2 years, I’ll be wearing a size 23 by the time I’m 70.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
