I’ve Stepped in It

Posted on May 11, 2010

Hey, can you do me a favor and look at the bottom of my shoe? Can you see if this is jelly I've stepped in? Just check and tell me if this is jelly or something else. I really hope it's jelly.

No no no, I know it's gross, but I appreciate the help, and it's probably jelly. Just take a quick peek. Maybe smell it and see if it smells sweet? I'd take off my shoe and do it myself, but whatever it is, it's gotten all over my laces, and I don't want to touch them. Just in case.

Please? I only worry because I was walking down near Union Square, where the gutter punks and meth heads hang out. So, it could be anything--jelly, jam, melted lollipop, ground beef, pigeon brains. That said, I'm sure it's probably jelly. Here, take a look. Get your nose right in there.

Oohhh, shit. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to kick you in the face. I am so sorry. That was a total accident. Wow, that was clumsy.

And, now you’ve got jelly on your forehead. I hope it's jelly.
