A small thought that just occurred. Bought a new pair of trainers (Primarni* bargain basement stuff in the sale, for walking doggie through mud etc) and just a thought occurred.
Laces are laced through the eyes. OK. Is this something automated as yet? Or is this still something that is done by hand? The placing of the laces into the shoes?
Not even sure I know why I’m even vaguely interested in knowing the answer, even if I am – this might be displacement activity as I’m finding a piece for elsewhere difficult to write – but it has just risen into the mind.
*OK, Primark then
