281) Get our shoes shined 11 Nov 2012

My father used to go to work every morning in shiny leather shoes. He’d keep a shoe shining kit in the corner of his closest and every so often he’d shine his shoes before work, and I remember the smell that would linger in the house when he left. It was a smell I very much enjoyed; the smell of old leather and shoe polish and my dad mixed all together.

Mostly, this to-do here is inspired by that memory.
