You might recall how shocked I was a couple of weeks ago to rip open the envelope and discover that I hadn't won the $10,000 grand prize for my entry in the Converse Shoe film competition. Then, a few seconds later how my heart skipped a beat when the agency assured me that I had won the 2nd prize (me and 4,000 other filmmakers). Second prize was a free pair of Chuck Taylors, either hi- or lo-tops, in the color of my choice.

After staring at the color chart for an hour, I decided to make a sacrifice. A sacrifice for my marriage. I gave the free shoe certificate to Tom, and today a handsome box appeared in the mail. See above for Tom's color choice.
