Getting ready for winter
The crisp chill of autumn fills the air.
The deer are rutting. The squirrels are gaining weight. And Rocky went shopping for a new pair of bedroom slippers.
In past years, Rocky’s slippers slipped into the same black hole as his missing unpaired socks and ballpoint pens. This year, Rocky tried a new tack. A tacky tack. A pair of slippers so thoroughly ugly — that they would not be borrowed; could not be misplaced; and will not be stolen.
Did Rocky mention that they were $3.24 at Target? (Thank you, China!)
[Disclosures: Rocky believes that the “S-S” refers to Syracuse University, and these slippers are not WWII surplus. Also, upon viewing Rocky’s new footsie-tootsie, Trophy Wife was left speechless. The small white dot on the right slipper are the stubborn remains of a price tag, and it does not interfere with comfort or functionality.]
