Both the Boots and the Sandals feel that the Shoes take too much of the Feet’s attention, so they formed an alliance.
One day, a Boot with a cold met up with his Sandal friend. They chat a bit.
“But are you sure there are no shoes around here?” The Sandal asks worriedly.
“Of course. I will keep a lookout and tell you if I see one!” The Boot replies.
This made the sandal feel calmer. They continue talking, but suddenly the Boot cries:
“A shoe! A shoe!”
“What? What? Where?” The Sandal looks around frantically, but spots no shoes.
“Sorry, I was just sneezing,” says the Boot.
I am aware that this punchline is very predictable but I came up with this story myself lol
