Recoil

Recoil"Aren't they the coolest?"

"Those things are a trip to the emergency room and a law suit waiting to happen."

Anya has no idea where Xander got a pair of boots with giant springs on the soles, but she really wished he hadn't brought them home. She sighed to herself, desperately missing the ability to wish things away.

Xander pulled the boots on and tried a few practice bounces. "Come on, Anya. It'll be fun. Check this out."

Anya heard a bounce, a crash and a groan of pain. She picked up the phone, dialling from memory. "Hello, Sunnydale Hospital..."

LOL! Great take on the word spring! And yep, I can see Xander doing that!

Some of the challenges can be either a bit naff or I've already done something similar. I like to go outside the box on occasion too and springy boots seemed so frighteningly Xander.

We shall rejoice in our weirdness and, when they come to take us away, mount a spirited defence armed with baguettes and week-old scones.

My muse likes challenges. If it doesn't have a challenge, it sits and spins its wheels.

Even I've looked at shoes with springs and thought they were an accident waiting to happen. Not immediately, of course, there was the delay involving drooling before sense kicked in.

Haven't heard them called moon boots, although it does make sense.

I've only heard moon boots refer to hideous footwear that looks like astronaut boots; big, tacky, shiny, puffy things. Closely related to their furry counterparts that look like Womble feet.

the boots with springs were the original moon boots, first released in the 50's for kids. you can see a kid wearing some in Back To The Future! very cool, in a retro crap kind of way.

Aside from crap taste in men. Xander should have ended up a troll too.
