    I'm out in New Mexico and I'm getting ready to head back to Atlanta in few days. But before I go, I'm going to go to a mass at the Santuario De Chimayo.

    Supposedly, the dirt there is...I don't know, sacred or magic or whatever you want to call it. But also, there's a legend that if you throw one shoe from a sick child in this hole there and keep the other one with him or her, they'll be cured.

    Full disclosure: I don't really know if I believe this or not. But if you want to PM me and work out a way to send me a shoe, I'd really like to try it for you.

    I'm really into particpatory legends. When I travel, I try to find stuff like that...I swam this cursed section of the Potomac, spent the night under the Georgia Stonehenge, called the roll of the dead at Oakland Cemetery...that kinda stuff.

    Hadn't been able to find anything here, but thought I'd give this a try.

    Oh, I know you're into those. Just... how many have turned out to be true, in your experiences so far?

    Oh, yeah, none.

    But hey, hope springs eternal. And they're always fun when I'm drunk.

    We are constantly thankful that we don't have a seriously ill child . I am sure we wouldn't miss my daughter's overactive gag reflex, but at least she is overall healthy.

    He'd be better off taking the shoe and donating it to a charitable organization that could put it to good use.

    Yeah, but if we cure that, she might not feel the pressure in high school to move beyond...well, you know.

    Just saying.

    I'm disappointed in you.

    You couldn't have come up with a better lie to cover for your shoe fetish?

    tisk tisk, indeed.

    "Baby, I know you can't do that, but if you love me, you should want to do the other, right? I mean, I did score a touchdown in the game tonight? Don't you think I deserve something?"

    Ack, you're making ME gag! :lol 

    Truthfully, these things don't work if the person doing the praying (in this case a prayer in the form of sacrificing a shoe) and the person they're praying for don't have absolute faith that it will work. Simple, and as elusive, as that.
