The Shoe Shine
You will never see me in an airport casually reading a newspaper or thinking about my giant stacks of money as a poor soul feverishly cleans and polishes my footwear.
I don't shine my shoes very often, but when I do, I enjoy the smell of the black Kiwi shoe polish and how a pair of recently polished shoes makes me feel. Speaking of Kiwi, I recently came across this add of theirs below.
Does this insinuate if you rub your shoes like a lamp, a miniature genie dressed in a nightgown will appear?
Maybe this is supposed to be a subliminal message that women really get turned on by a pair of shiny shoes? I think someone in the marketing department needs to look up the definition of subliminal before they do their next ad.
At any rate, now that I understand how important it is, I will be shining my shoes every day!
