Your friend goes,”OMG! I got a couple pairs of TOMS shoes!! It’s gonna help so many children in Africa. I really made a difference today!!!”
You’re like, “Umm.. wouldn’t that flood villages with thousands of extra shoes and slowly destroy the local economy for shoemakers and sellers??”
Then they freak out cause they have no money left to pay their rent.
You laugh cause they have no money left to pay their rent.
Then you remember they’re your roommate.

One of the things I love about Harare is the random metal sculptures you’ll see on major roads around the Sunshine City. This metal elephant is on the roundabout on Simon Mazorodze/Beatrice Road highway.
