After 9 consecutive years of living like/as a student (with at least one more to go) most of my shoes are what Reachel Bagley would call "carcasses". Cheap carcasses at that. So today I'm dreaming of shoe shopping, or at least of wearing shoes that haven't been worn to bits.
Emphasis on the word "dreaming...." , that would be a non-active verb.(like these pretty lemon ones, by Frye)
