Apparently, when a teen aged boy grows three inches taller in what seems like mere nano-seconds, he not only outgrows his pants, but, his shoes as well.
Don't ask me why this comes as such a surprise.
Now, if you will excuse me, I am off to purchase new basketball shoes for my son. I'm seriously considering looking in the clown-shoe department just to find a pair large enough to allow for the growth that we are certain to see again by this time next week.
Wait, scratch that; I'm not even sure that clowns' feet grow that big.
Perhaps I should just invest in a really rad pair of skis.
