Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time!
A float broke down on the parade route. As a result the Salvation Army band was stopped right in front of our grandstand for about fifteen minutes. One participant decided to rest her weary feet. The women sitting around me all decided that she, unlike the other women, had decided to wear her "cute" heels instead of the more practical ones. We think she might have had second thoughts, especially since she had another couple of miles to walk before the six-mile route ended.
