Comments: Understanding Slippers in Florida, Good Grief

Since I have a skinny kid with Sponge Bob underwear ... I can totally envision this! I don't suppose you could get a photo, to save for later? It might come in handy should you need leverage when he's 18. ;)

I'm not sure what's funnier - the mental image you paint of you wearing dead a Cookie Monster on your feet or the Sponge Bob/Camo loafer combo image. Either way - sound like you're both quite the fashion plates!!

I still don't know how you got a whole post on slippers.

Slippers, in the Great White North, are an item that is bought/received every year and usually as a Christmas item.

Slippers are a staple clothing item up here.

I get the whole 'not heating the house in Southern Florida' thing. But that doesn't explain how we've kept our thermostat set at 65 all Winter, here in Northern Virginia.

I love my slippers.

Heh. I live in Missouri and my heat does not go above 68 :)

Hey - Can I laugh at him? cause I am...

I too have a skinny boy, but he is twelve and totally self conscious of being seen in his underwear at all, house full of sisters and all, and has graduated to non character undies as well.

My boy is currently on the porch cracking the bull whip he got for Christmas - there is a giant periodic table hanging in the stairwell (one that he put together himself)- and various electronic pieces pilfered from broken household devices are wired together into some sort of contraption on the breakfast room table. I do believe these are primarily testosterone driven occurrences...

Give me my three kids and just about any topic, and I bet I can come up with a post.

This slipper things is so odd for us. We're barefeet FL people. I was cracking up that I actually had to EXPLAIN the purpose of slippers to Bones. I was like, "Really? I have to... explain this?" And it took two frickin' days. Good Grief.

I am weeping with laughter. I had to stop reading to wipe my eyes...
