around the age of 3 or 4 i called shoes, "hungs".
yes, hungs. emphasis on the H. i have no idea why or how i came to calling them "hungs" but i did, and apparently i really liked hungs.
one day my family and i were all shopping at a shoe store - i think is was lucky's shoes or something and i was really excited to be in the shoe store. suddenly i started grabbing pairs of "hungs" and throwing them over my shoulder shouting, "HUNGS, HUNGS!", each time that i grabbed a shoe.
my little feet quickly carried me all around the store before anyone could stop me, causing an utter mess. the adults around couldn't do anything to stop me because they were way too busy laughing.
about 25 years later the "hungs" incident still resonates with my family. when my mom and i make shopping trips to DSW she has been known to throw a shoe over her shoulder and shout "hungs". har de har har, mom.
so when i was made aware of an event that was happening this thursday for the grand opening of the DSW location in crocker park all i could think about was winning "hungs".
here are the details:
on thursday, november 6th DSW is offering one lucky customer 15 minutes to stuff as many pairs of shoes that he/SHE can fit into a smartcar.
plus, the winner of the crocker park contest has a 1-5 chance with the other four DSW location winners to actually win the smartcar itself. um - yes, please.
to enter, head to the DSW in crocker park between 5pm and 7:30pm to enter. the winner will be chosen promptly at 8pm and the shopping spree with start at 8:30.
i'm going to head out there with some friends to the event and i'm totally set on winning. my strategy? take the shoes out of the boxes! no shoe boxes - they'll just take up more room in the smartcar, duh.
and when i do win i'm grabbing these, these, these and these - plus100 more pairs easily.
