Donald and the Talking Shoe





"Wh- what was that?!" Donald cried fearfully.

"Me, you big dummy! Your shoe!"

"A talking shoe?" Donald exclaimed in amazement. "I didn't know that shoes could talk!"

"Yeah, yeah. So I can talk. What's the big idea, putting those smelly feet of yours into me?" the shoe said indignantly. "I'm sick and tired of having to put up with those smelly things."

"Sorry about that, Mr. Shoe. Say, how is it that you can talk?" Donald asked curiously.

"Never mind about that!" yelled the shoe. "I've got a list of complaints, and you're going to listen!"

Donald, still a little bewildered about being talked to by a shoe, affably agreed. "Shoot," he replied.

"Believe me, if I could, I would," the angry shoe muttered under his breath. Then, in a louder voice, he began his list of complaints. "First and foremost, never, I repeat, never put your feet inside me if they are smelly, dirty, or have some sort of fungus. Secondly, kindly do not run through mud, gum, or, more importantly, dog doo when you are wearing me. Those are all quite disgusting to me, and you never seem to be able to get the stuff off."

"You're right," Donald agreed. "I'll try to be more careful."

"You better be!" the shoe roared. "Now, where was I? Oh yes. Thirdly, when you put me on, do not shove and twist your foot into my body. Loosen my laces, then gently slide that hideous foot of yours into me. Finally, if you would put some foot powder into me occasionally, that would be very much appreciated. It helps get rid of little of your stench," the shoe said haughtily, as he finished his list of grievances.

Donald, who appeared lost in thought, did not answer. "Thinking on how you'll have to change your ways?" asked the shoe arrogantly.

"Huh?" Donald came out of his reverie and looked at the shoe. "Well, no, to be honest. I'm trying to estimate how much I could probably get for you on eBay. Do you think 5,000 is too much?"

A/N: Yes, another school project (lol). Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoyed it! Reviews are very much appreciated, as well as constructive criticism. And, yes, the title is horrible. (hehe...titles are not my strong points) Better ideas are welcomed but I don't know if I can change it here on the site. :P
