Gulliver’s adventure in Lilliput begins when he awakens after his shipwreck to find himself bound by innumerable tiny threads and addressed by tiny captors who are in awe of him but fiercely protective of their kingdom.
Bad week with old sandals and unhappy toes. New sandals are truly, truly ugly. Every time I look at them I'm reminded of Gulliver under the crisscross threads. My toes are happier, and that is the main thing.
