Have you ever wondered why people hang shoes from the power lines in their neighborhood? Well, I do.
Over the weekend, Mrs. Captain and I had the opportunity to go on a date for our anniversary. While out, we noticed shoes hanging from a power line.
I’ve seen this many times before, but never knew why. So, I did what any good American does- I went to the Internet.
What did I find?
No definitive answer. I saw that the possible reasons include the identification of crack houses, a memorial of sorts for neighborhood friends that died, identification of gang areas, and simply a game to play with shoes. There has to be a better answer. Do you know?
If you have a better answer, leave it on my Facebook page, or tweet me (@ acjlist). That’s a wrap for Monday. Have a great day!
