Comfy Sneakers

"Bubba, you really need to toss those sneakers and wear your new ones," I said to my seven-year-old son.  His old tennis shoes were a mess.  There were holes in the bottom, the material on the top had peeled off, and the rubber tip was hanging by a thread.

"No!  I love these shoes!" 

"Dude, what are you going to do when you have to walk through puddles and snow?"

"Get wet."

"Yeah," I said.  "That wouldn't be much fun."

"I don't care.  These are the best shoes I have."

"Bubba, you have a brand-spankin' new pair of shoes right here.  Why don't you wear them?"

"Because I like these."

Ugh!  I'll never win.
