Herman had always enjoyed exploring the shoe closet. It was dark and he found shoe climbing to be particularly fun. But, today he found himself in a rather awkward position when he tried to take a short cut. The back strap of the sandal he crawled through did not give way as he had expected it to and he ended up trapped. He was glad that the guardian had been around to witness this and free him, but he didn’t appreciate how long it took her to stop laughing about it.
