There is a reason your mother always told you not to leave your shoes in the middle of the floor.
When you are traipsing through your new apartment in the dark, you are more likely to trip over them. You may be wondering why I am meandering around in the dark. It’s because I have to wake up in the middle of the night to get ready for work! I’m not complaining.
I did learn to pick my shoes up instead. Chalk it up to lessons learned.
