It was either Frank Sobo(cienski) and/or Frenchy Fuqua, former running back for the Pittsburgh Steelers, who wore platform shoes with clear, hollow, plastic heels, which were filled with water and agitated goldfish. Although I can believe that Frank was the owner of such a pair of dandy shoes, it seems that he may have been simply admiring Frenchy's flamboyant wardrobe and wistfully waxing on about the benefits and joys of walking around while goldfish regurgitate incessantly in the miniature but violent tsunami that was created in the heels of those mid-1970's platform "disco" shoes. Neither of Frank's books of anecdotal chapters has covered this event, but it seems like a story that will appear at some point or another.
Lucky for us, Frank is an accomplished and critical observer of the human condition -- good and bad, sublime and ridiculous, absurd and practical. And, if you are one of the unlucky ones who have not heard Frank tell a story, which he is prone to do at the drop of the proverbial hat, reading "DNA Stew" and/or "Crumpet Strumpet" will give you a glimpse into the mind of a man who approaches life with a twisted sense of humor and an eye towards "screwing with you" as much as possible. Thankfully, political correctness does not have a place in Frank's world unless he is about to harpoon it in some humorous or sacrilegious manner.
A friend once told me that he was not equipped to write a good book or script because he was too young and that he had not experienced enough of what life has to offer, especially the bad or unfortunate events that are supposed to build character. Frank was born to report his experiences and observations, even if they are often figments of his distorted and rampant imagination. One thing is for sure: Frank certainly has a knack for telling a story and we are all lucky for that.
