Shoelaces

I am connected to the very first man who ever tied his shoelaces together, to prevent his shoes from tumbling off his feet. In that same vein, I am connected to you.
You, who also know how to tie your own laces. 
We are not born with the knowledge of tying our shoelaces together. We must acquire this skill from someone before us, and he before him from he before him before him before him and before, who must have gained the gift of lacing from his father and his father from his father’s father’s father’s father and all the fathers from the definite number of fathers before him, from the very first son, who learnt from the one and only Grand Father of Shoelace Tying. He was a genius.
That is how I am related to you, a complete stranger. But by having  relations it would mean that we are no longer strangers to each other. Just as shoelaces hold our shoes together, the very notion of the motion of tying holds us, the whole world, together.
The only strangers left, or the strange estranged would have to be people who wear Crocs. These people do not know how to tie their shoelaces, because they do not have any.

crocs are great nesting locations for gangrenous pests and vermin.
