Shoe Fly

My good and kindly roommate Hambone, leaving for work, coined a quite possibly perfect name for the phenomenon—phenomenon which one sees in many an area of high occupancy density—of shoes in pairs, each pair's laces tied together, hanging giddily from power lines.

And that name was and remains: Philadelphia Mistletoe.

That is a clever way to describe the feel of Philly, but I always understood it as a place where one could buy drugs.

And by "a place where one could buy drugs", I didn't mean in Philly (though I am quite sure one could buy plenty), but as in under a Philadelphia Mistletoe in "Anytown, USA".
