Farewell, Sweet Slippers
They climb ladders, collect the mail, bash ceramic tile, demolish walls, plant flowers, spray paint oven doors, glue shingles on a dollhouse roof, protect me from dead roaches, rip out carpet, paint cabinets, strip woodwork, take photographs ... oh, and keep my toes toasty.
With all that work, my slippers don't last long. I got these last Christmas from Old Navy for $10. Now, look at them:
Not pretty. Slippers, you have served me well.
My new slippers (K-mart, $7.99, pink) have rubber soles, so I'm hoping they will make it more than 10 months. But I won't be surprised if they don't. We have a lot more work to do, my slippers and I.
