Three Line Tales — The Other Shoe

Detective Morrisey saw an object in the distance that appeared to have washed up onto the shore just about a half mile south of the chemical plant. As he approached the object he saw that it was a single men’s sneaker, and beckoned a nearby uniformed officer who was at the scene and instructed him to put the sneaker into an evidence bag.

Morrisey was tired and hungry but managed a slight grin as he wondered when the proverbial other shoe would drop.

    Kind of spooky. I was listening today to a news podcast about a woman who’d been ripping her friends and family off for years and then disappeared about three months ago from her 6million dollar Sydney home and, more recently her shoe (with her foot inside it) washed up on a beach 400 km south. Such a weird story. Not the kind you send your kids to bed with.
