Day 33: The Trash Compactor

It’s Star Wars: A No Hope for the pair of trainers in today’s episode of the 365-day charity challenge

Feb 2b

Feb 2 dNot sure whether today’s pair of trainers are destined for the trash compactor or if that’s where they came from. They’ve seen better days. Hell, they look like they’ve seen better wars. They’re another donated pair from an old mate from years ago at uni, and I swear I’ve got photos of him wearing them back then. The brand name on them in Nineteen Zero Four, which means sod all to me. They were probably quite stylish once.

Still, it gives us an excuse to give you a cameo from the dianoga. You never got a good look at her in the trash compactor scene in Star Wars and this is exactly what she looks like. Honestly. Erm… possibly.
