The great dilettante George Plimpton—I think I’d like to have walked in some of his shoes… And I’d have a kick wearing those big ol’ dragon boots that Gene Simmons used to wear in KISS, or if I knew that Elvis’ blue suedes could make me dance from the hip, or—wait: GENE KELLY! Yeah! If I could put on shoes that would make me do something I couldn’t otherwise do, it’d have to be Gene Kelly or the great skateboarder Tony Alva. I’d probably get more girls with Gene Kelly’s though, so if we were just speaking hypothetically and it has nothing to do against my much-beloved wife, I’d pick Gene Kelly!
