This morning I dashed to the Bank, and then called in to a nearby poundshop in order to get some new black shoelaces for Bob [changing one set between best shoes/black trainers is a time-consuming business!] "I need 90cm, black, please" I said to the guy.
"Oh, there is an assortment of black and brown on this card" he said.
Which there is indeed - but I am intrigued that the card proclaims assorted sizes- but every pair of laces is 90cm long. For £1 I am not complaining [and even if they snap, bob will have plenty of replacements!]
I am way too busy to worry about shoelaces at the minute - so have no time to check out this website. Ian, whoever he is, is obviously obsessed with the issue, claiming that "Whether you want to learn to lace shoes, tie shoelaces, stop shoelaces from coming undone, calculate shoelace lengths or even repair aglets, Ian's Shoelace Site has the answer!" Bizarrely, that is the second time in a week I have come across the word aglets. It deserves to be used regularly!
