I was visiting an historic warship in Portsmouth, UK, when a party of college boys came aboard. A bit later I was on the docking brings and two boys were there. I heard one say to the other “you can just see it in the water”. Thinking that he had seen some kind of wildlife I asked what you could see in the water. ” The boy’s shoe” he said. Then he told me that as they came aboard one of the boys tripped and he lost his shoe. Another boy picked it up and pretended to throw it overboard. Unfortunately the shoe slipped out of his hand and ended up in the water. I immediately went to find the boy with one shoe, my heart beating fast! I got to the main deck in time to see two boys changing shoes with only three shoes between them. The teacher in charge had made the boy who threw is friends shoe in the water give his shoes to his friend and send the rest of the day with one shoe. I couldn’t take my eyes off him as he walked round the ship in his black trousers, white socks and one black lace up shoe. I tried to imagine him walking around town all day with one shoe. I got so inspired that later that afternoon I let my right loafer fall into the harbour from the ferry boat, and had to go and eat then go home on the train without a right shoe. I was very excited!!!

Last autumn I had to go to London for an interview so I dressed smartly and wore my favourite loafers. They were far from new but still good looking. I went for the interview, which was over very quickly, then went to an art gallery for an hour or so then decided to go to Dulwich gallery which was a train ride away, Walking to the station I could feel that my right shoe seemed to be a bit loose. On the train I took it off and looked at it and found that the stitching of the part that goes over the instep had started to come undone. When I got to Dulwich I looked for a shoe repair shop, but the owner didn’t have any machine to do stitching. I was already imagining it coming undone and the loafer falling off, and as I walked to the art gallery it did come more undone. I got to the gallery and started to look around and I was already having difficulty keeping my shoe on. Afterwards I went to have something to eat and by this time the whole of the side of my loafer was coming undone. On the way to get the train back to the centre of London I lost my shoe a couple of times and had to pick it up and carry it. When I got to the centre I didn’t think it a good idea to walk around with one shoe missing so I put it on again and had a few more ‘losings’. I was so fed up with this that when it came off and fell between the train and the platform I decided to abandon it. I got an instant thrill as I got on the train with only one shoe and realized that this was what I really wanted all along. I spent the rest of the evening walking around London with only a left black shoe and a light grey sock and a bulge in my pants!

Last friday, my school’s corridor, a break between second and third lesson that day. I was in our school’s shop to buy a new pen (that one I used just broke). But when the bell rings, I was still in the shop. So I started to run back to my class, trying not to be late for my lesson. When I’d been running upstairs, I slipped at some moment and fell down the stairs. I got up and it turned out that i lost my right shoe. I looked back and I saw some kid, picking my shoe up off the floor and throwing it with all his strengh! So i immediately lost my shoe from my sight. I try to look for my shoe, but i couldn’t found it. So I reached the my class not only late, but with one shoe as well. Worst of all, that Mrs. Burska called me also to the blackboard! Everyone in my class saw me walking one-shoed. So, they laughed at me a lot that day, because I had to spent three lessons more wearing one shoe and only brown sock on my other foot. Finally, My shoe was given to the lost and found box.
Of course, I have boots in dressing room, but it is not allowed to wearing boots at school.
