This is a pair of fake Crocs my wife bought at Géant for a few bucks. They turned out to be just a half size too small for comfort.
And she prefers open-toed shoes for summer.
All it took was a few minutes with a razor blade and voilà!
Do they sell razor blades in Uruguay? I have no idea. I almost didn’t bring these from the United States. I’ll explain.
When we flew to New York in 2012 for my niece’s wedding in Connecticut, we had offered to bring an absurd amount of stuff back to Uruguay for people.* My last-minute packing operation occupied a significant part of my sister’s living room floor. I kept reassigning goods to different suitcases. It took a while, but finally everything fit.
But just before we headed out the door for the airport, I suddenly realized I needed one more item reassignment…
…because going through airport security with two box cutters and 100 razor blades in my carry-on bag didn’t seem like something that was going to end well.
