Shoe Shopping

I was stationed on Tatooine for a short time. While there I decided I wanted to get a pair of genuine Krayt Dragon shoes in the worst way.

The problem for me was the high prices the local vendors were asking. After becoming very frustrated with the "no haggle" attitude of one of the shopkeepers, I just shouted shouted, "maybe I'll just go out and get my own Krayt Dragon so I can get a pair of shoes made at a reasonable price!"

The salesman, a toydarian, said, "By all means, be my guest. Maybe you will run into a couple of Corellian Marines who were in here earlier saying the same thing."

So I headed into the Great Dune Sea that same day and a few hours later came upon two men standing near the entrance of a cave. I thought, "those must be the two Corellian Marines the merchant in town was talking about.”

Just then, I saw a tremendously 12 foot long Krayt Dragon running rapidly out of the cave towards one of the Corellians.

Just as the Krayt Dragon was about to attack, the Corellians grabbed its neck with both hands and strangled it to death after a while.

Then both Corellians Marines dragged to a flat spot and flipped it on its back. Laying nearby were several more of the creatures.

One of the Corellian Marines then exclaimed, "Damn, this one doesn't have any shoes either!

OMG! How many Krayt Dragons do you have to kill to get a pair of shoes?

I totally want to post something inappropriate in response to Erifia's comment, but I'm censoring myself.

(LOL) Duh! Everyone knows dragon wear boots, not shoes. And I am the first to admit that Corellian Marines are not the sharpest pencils in the box.

Caring about one's wardrobe is perfectly acceptable. Having a sense of style is admirable. Grooming one's intellect essential.
