The lost shoes…

Exactly how many shoes have you lost out the car window in your life?  Seriously?  I’ve been pondering this for years now…who keeps losing their shoes out their car windows?  Does this happen everywhere, or is it some particular hazard of living in Western New York?  I would have to say it’s a sight almost as common as roadkill around here (which is extremely common).  Today, just in a 1 hour drive, I counted not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 lonely shoes laying along the roadside- in 4 separate places, mind you, so it’s not like one unfortunate soul lost 2 pairs of shoes at once.  4 different people lost 4 different shoes in 4 different places.  Presumably at 4 different times.  I wonder what they’re doing at the moment their shoes are lost?  Is it some sort of game?  Is it angry teenager thing (eye roll, Mom…you’re like sooooooooooooooooooo annoying…I’m going to throw my shoe out the window to symbolize my teen angst)?  Is it a toddler tantrum thing (Ha HAAA! the childproof window lock is unmanned and now I’m going to throw all the shoes I can reach out the window while my parents are not looking!!!)?  Am I in some sort of danger of losing my shoe (only 1 mind you, because there are never pairs of shoes on the side of the road) if I hit some sort of country road shoe-sucking vortex?  Is that, perhaps, how they end up hanging from powerlines as well? Is it just the result of some hapless packing system in which a person tends to leave just one single shoe precariously perched so that hitting the pothole in the road just right will send it flying into roadside oblivion?

I don’t know.  It’s just weird.
