Inside my shoes [LotD #30]
Welcome to Monday. Starting the week off for us is the great Bob Dylan, who somehow has not yet made an appearance in this series. Today, that drought ends, with his "Positively 4th Street," and this lyric:
"Yes, I wish that for just one time
You could stand inside my shoes
You'd know what a drag it is
To see you"

Ouch.
The legend tells that this song was written not as an attack on any one person, but just 'the haters' in general, especially those who booed him at a 1965 folk festival when Dylan showed up with an electric guitar.
If you ask me, bringing an electric guitar to a folk festival seems like grounds for being booed, especially if you're Bob Dylan. But that would be a reasonable interpretation of the situation, and we all know that Bob Dylan is not a reasonable man, lots of the time.
All Monday should start out this way, with a great-big "GET LOST" to the haters.
So, thanks, Bob.
