'rock The Cobbler

The slogan, 'Real. Comfortable. Shoes.' would be too derivative. So, the Leprechaun sat, considering, frustrated , trying to come up with something original.

He spun the office chair, whistling a tune.

The family trade had died out on the auld sod. And so, heartbroken, weeping, the centuries-old shoemaker, harnessing the powers of ancient magic and modern electronics, had effectively e-mailed himself to America. His e-mail pal, a college sophomore, who was capitalizing on his precious opportunity for an education by mixing dangerous, expensive street drugs with alcohol, had laughed when he came through the screen, and went and laid down in the apartment's ornate bathtub.

Shamrock Dell, as he was known in this new land, felt peckish, and considered a bowl of Lucky cereal. He thought better of it. Too high an iron content. Great for growing kiddos, problematic for little Leprechauns...

THE PERFECT FIT! Ay!

He'd found a brilliant slogan.

'Shoes, done right, like we've dunnum since the days of Slaine...made with modern materials and sold oer the web... Isn't it a PERFECT FIT ALTOGETHER!'

As he clicked 'save' and hopped onto the shiny hardwood floor of his room, though, he had to admit, things had NOT fit perfectly since he'd come to Dixie, Ohio. First, there was the matter of his flatmate and business partner, J.J. The kind lad had a head for business and was a great roomie, but he was, in the terms of this time and place, a self-medicator. To be a good example to the boy, he'd sworn off drink for the time being. J.J also had some strains of the hunter-gatherer, and needed help staying on track. 'Didja remember that appointment, now, Joseph?' He asked J.J. who was spread over the recliner- inverse- to clear his thoughts and for want of something to do. 'Tomorrow, noon, Newstart.' The lep grumphed, regarded his small form in the living-room mirror and grabbed his jacket.

***AUTHOR'S NOTE*** I do not necessarily subscribe to the hunter-gatherer theory of A.D.H.D. Why, Rock might speculate, perhaps A.D.H.D came from the wee people!
