SANDAL

The Daily WORD is SANDAL

I need new glasses. Would you believe I had an eye exam by a real doctor who used modern equipment for two dollars?  He even threw in a bottle of drops for dry eyes (common in this dusty place). The glasses were pricier, comparatively speaking. They cost about a fifth of what I would pay in the US for the same glasses – and they take VISA. (without a bribe)

Of course, my optometrist in the US does not have a sign outside his office ordering NO SHOES ALLOWED IN OFFICE.  If I were afraid to subject myself to the Indian medical system, I would end up paying $98 for the privilege of wearing shoes while having my eyes examined. I don’t even like my shoes. They have this attitude that they should go everywhere with me.

Indians have seized control of their shoes and leave them outside routinely. After so many centuries of neglect, the Indian Sandal has forgotten how to whine.

If I were here to meditate, I would meditate on the Indian Sandal.
