While we were there, I decided to get Ned a new pair also. We had a little "discussion" because he wanted velcro shoes like Mother used to buy him before I became queen. I maintain that a person who is CAPABLE of tying a shoe doesn't need velcro shoes. Ned has a little bit of a lazy streak. I won...no velcro.
We had a nice lunch and then Ned went back to his house and I took Mother to visit her sister for a little bit. We're still trying to talk Ned into trying out a job. His new housemate, Scott, is already working, while Ned is just as happy as a clam to sit home. I told him that men without jobs don't get the pretty girls. Ned doesn't care. I told him that Scott was going to be able to go shopping to buy fun things with the money he's earning. Ned does NOT care! I told him that if he got a job and saved his money that HE could go buy velcro shoes! He did pause at that point to consider this one but...you guess it...He DOES NOT CARE! I don't know what we're going to do with him. Finally, I told him that Hank (who he puts on a pedestal) was going to be VERY disappointed if he didn't at least try out a job. Didn't work! I decided it was time to come home.
