Foot Fetish

Yesterday I finally made it to the dry cleaner. I have been carting the same bag of clothes around in the back of my car since Jan so it was a huge deal for me to finally get to the dry cleaner. My dry cleaner is located in a strip mall next to a Hollywood Tan. I was on the phone with my sister-in-law so I decided to stop in front of the dry cleaner to finish my conversation with her before going in.

Out of the Hollywood tan exit two very orangey brown college girls in sweats. I notice that they have slippers on their feet. Ha! I think to myself, remembering all the times, hung over on a Sat or Sun morning when I went to the 7-11 or McDonald's in similar foot wear. These girls walked towards the parking lot, I finished my conversation with Lisa and went into the cleaners.

About 10 minutes later, I am in my car, crossing the intersection at Henderson Road and Rt 202 (a huge intersection) when I see the same girls crossing 202. The had WALKED to Hollywood Tans in their slippers. Now seriously, when did slippers become appropriate foot wear for WALKING more than to and from your car in the parking lot of the 7-11?

These were not indoor/outdoor slippers either - they were fuzzy (see below). The worst part - it had rained too so the ground wasn't what you would call, um, dry.

I was kind of grossed out and even outraged - I mean come on - if you are going to walk OUTSIDE for over a mile on WET ground can you at least find a pair of shoes? Flip flops even? Where are the fashion police when you need them!

OK, I feel better now. Back to my homework. May all your feet be warm and dry tonight!
